In 1850, one year after the Danes achieved religious liberty, the first Mormon missionaries came to Denmark.

Here they established themselves in Copenhagen and with Copenhagen as their headquarters the Mormon doctrines were preached in Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

The first Mission President in Denmark apostle Erastus Snow’s wrote this in his diary: ”There is a degree of order and neatness… and urbanity of manners, such as is common to English towns… Copenhagen itself was still lighted with old oil lamps and the fire companies haul their hose and water on sleds with tubs and barrels. But it had its points: The navy yard & fixtures, fortifications, public buildings, walks and gardens… would be a credit to any town or nation.”
