Vartov is a historic building. N.F.S. Grundtvig was the priest in Vartov church (1839-72). Vartov still provides venues and platforms for a lot of events – all in Grundtvig’s spirit.

Grundtvig (1783-1871) was a pastor, a theologian, a teacher, a writer, a politician. He lived in Copenhagen at the same time as Hans Christian Andersen and Søren Kirkegaard. Although Grundtvig is relatively unknown internationally, he is one of the most influential people in Danish history. Grundtvig’s ideas have had a lasting impact in many areas of Danish culture, such as education, politics and the church.
