The Round Tower
Built in 1642 this tower has a long spiral ramp instead of a staircase. It is 209 meters long and 35 meters high. At the top you have a great view of the roofs and spires of Copenhagen. It was built not as a bell tower, but as a tower for astronomical observations. In 1716 the Russian empress Catherine took a horse-drawn carriage up the spiral ramp with Peter the Great in front of the horse.

RUNDETAARN. The Round Tower. As you can tell from the inscription of the tower, it was 1642 that the tower was completed. The beautiful wrought iron was made a year later in 1643 by Kaspar Fincke. The access ramp to the top of the tower is in a spiral, so you do walk round and round and round (7.5 times)... and hopefully you won't be nauseous. :) It is a wonderful place to see Copenhagen from above at almost 35 meter high.

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.

Built in the 17th century as part of the Trinitatas church, this tower has great views over Copenhagen.

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..
