42 Christian’s Church in Copenhagen, Denmark

Christians Kirke is named after Christian V. The king allowed local German merchants to construct their own parish church. It was funded by a monarch-approved lottery. This prompted the nickname Lottery Church. It was originally called Frederik’s German Church when consecrated in 1759. The 229 foot tower was added ten years later. Today, the denomination of Christian’s Church is Protestant.
