An exciting church with an unexpected history
The Church of Our Savior in Christianshavn appears in a chapter of Jules Verne’s ´A Journey to the Center of the Earth´. The character Axel is made to climb the winding spire for five consecutive days by his uncle to cure him of his Acrophobia before their descent into the volcano…
Already on a visit to Copenhagen in 1861, Jules Verne had personally seen the church. And in 1881, Jules and his brother Paul visited the church, but only Paul dared to climb the tower.
