Lonely Planet review
Tragedy struck CF Hansen’s dignified neoclassical church (dating from 1826), next door to the parliament, on the day of the Copenhagen Carnival, 1992. A stray firework hit the scaffolding that had surrounded the church during a lengthy restoration and set the roof ablaze, destroying the dome. Miraculously, a remarkable frieze by Bertel Thorvaldsen that rings the ceiling just below the dome survived. The restorers went back to work and the church was reopened in January 1997.
