Consecrated in 1894, the neobaroque Marble Church (officially Frederikskirken) is one of Copenhagen's most imposing architectural assets. Its grandiose dome – measuring more than 30m in diameter and inspired by St Peter's in Rome – can be climbed on weekends. The church was ordered by Frederik V and drawn up by Nicolai Eigtved. Construction began in 1749 but spiralling costs saw the project mothballed. Salvation came in the form of Denmark's wealthiest 19th-century financier CF Tietgen, who bankrolled the project's revival.
The church's exterior is ringed by statues of Danish theologians and saints.
