Rundetaarn (Roundtower). Built by King Christian IV a lot of years ago. It gives you a nice view of the old city and in clear weather you can see the new bridge between Denmark and Sweden from the top.
Well, it is round. You literally walk round and round to get to the top (only stairs at the very top).
Rundetarn - what an exceptional building! This is a landmark not to be overlooked. This massive sausage towers over the buildings in the old latin quarter. This gently sloping floor on the inside of the building was used to move chariots by Christian IV. It is facinating to explore this building and follow the path of the ancients.
you have to see the 'RUNDETAARN'..
be there in the day time since you can see the whole city from the top of the tower.. climbing part is also funny.. you arrive to the top of the tower after making several (5? 7? i don't know:) circles in the tower...
Built in the 17th century as part of the Trinitatas church, this tower has great views over Copenhagen.
Built on the initiative of King Christian IV, was completed in 1642. For pics of Copenhagen from the Tower, go to my Travelogues.
the rundetarn was built on the orders of king christian IV in 1642. the rundetarn is the oldest working observatory in europe. you can walk up the spiral ramp for a nice view of the city.
The round tower. Built in the 1600s and used as an astronomical observatory. It is great fun circling ever upwards to the viewing platform which gives an unencumbered 360 degree view of the city.
This tower was designed so the king could ride in a horse cart up to the top and see the great view over the city. They don't offer you any ride now, but it's not really hard to walk..
Roundtower, it is the oldest functgoning observatory in Europe. Also its spiral walk is so unique!!!
