St. Michaelis Church in Fredericia

The church is being renovated at the moment and will be closed until spring 2018.

The church was originally a German church because of lots of immigrants from the foreign countries in the south. From the year 1687 the garrison of the town belonged to the church and the church is still a garrison church as well as being an ordinary parish church.

The church does not have a tall tower because nothing from the fortress town was permitted to be seen over the ramparts. In the tower room there is a small carillon which is to be heard 4 times a day: 7.58 - 11.58 - 16.58 - 21.58 and Sunday before the service. The font is a copy 3/4 the size of Thorvaldsens font in the Church of Our Lady in Copenhagen. Special for the church is also that it has a special seating section with separate entrance for the commander-in-chief of the garrison. 

Today the church is the only remaining garrison church in Denmark outside of Copenhagen. 

Closed on Mondays (except for pre-booked group tours)
