the Round Tower was built in 1637-1642. Its measuring 268m (880 ft.) and winding itself seven times around the hollow core of the tower.
The top of the tower offers great views over the city's roofs. For the panoramic view of the city, climb the spiral ramp (no steps) leading up to the top of this tower.
There is the story that Peter the Great, in his Denmark visit, galloped up the ramp on horseback...

The Round Tower (Rundetaarn), built in 1642 was great... We were glad that we 'climbed' the spiral ramp to the top where we got a wonderful view of the city...

Favorite thing: Check out Rundetarn (Round Tower) in the Latin Quarter. This was an interesting tower without stairs or a lift. You walk up or down via a huge (wide) spiral which practically takes up all the space in the tower. There's an admission charge. About halfway up, there's a small museum you can check out. From the top you get a view of the old city's red-tiled rooftops and church spires. No pics - I went up on a day when it was overcast and raining... Since the weather wasn't that cooperative we also attempted to get on the brewery tour, but first we had to get there! We went by bus but when we arrived, the last tour for the day was just finishing up. Merry tour participants had just drank their share of brew and one by one, they were leaving... :-( None for us...
Favorite thing: The view from the Rudetarn is amazing. Because it is so centrally located you get an amazing view on the city. It is definitely worth buying a ticket and coming up here.
This is the view from the top of the Round Tower...
If you get the chance, go up this one...it's got a good view of Copenhagen and is different to most other towers...it has a ramp insead of steps.
