    Our Saviours Church

    by Sharna. Updated May 25, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are plenty of churches and beautiful historic buildings to admire and explore in Copenhagen. Our Saviours Church is located across from Christiania. Climb all 400 stairs for a spectacular view of the harbour and the city. As you get closer to the top the stairs become more narrow, so be patient and polite as you rub up against your fellow tourists!

    Vor Frelser Kirke

    The Vor Frelser Kirke is a oneof a kind. The spiraled staircase is on the outside of the churches tower. This looks absolutely amazing. You can even walk up there if you buy a ticket. The church itself is also worth a visit. There's a great organ inside, carried by two elephants.

    Our Saviour's Church

    Vor Frelsers Kirke can be seen from many parts of Copenhagen, with its distinct spiralling, golden tower. You can walk up the tower during the summer months if it's not too windy or rainy as you walk outside. The church itself is from 1696 and in Dutch style but the tower was built 1752 when money was given by King Frederik V. The architect was then inspired by St Ivo della Sapienza in Rome. If you don't fancy climbing the 90 metre tower, just stay below and listen to the 45 bells.

    I don't remember the name of this church but it was one of the most interesting I've have ever seen. The spire can be climbed but the steps are on the outside so as you are climbing, you get a fantastic view of Copenhagen. If you have a fear of heights, it's a definite miss, just a little railing between you and wonderful Copenhagen streets.

    The Vor Frelsers Kirske church has a beautiful spirling tower that will let you enjoy the view on Copenhagen. I recommend going up just before sunset.

    Cool Building: Better View

    This is a church in Christianshavn offering, in my opinion, the best view of the city. Be warned though: the stairs are very steep and narrow. It was a difficult climb, but......
