Have climbed a few church towers and narrow spiral staircases in my time, such as Durham Cathedral and The Rock of Cashel. My son and I love the never ending upward climbs often on very narrow ladders and tight, twisty wooden staircases. The climb of Our Saviour beats all others, not because the view is tremendous and it really is.... More

We did not go up the tower as felt we did not want to pay when you can go up Christianborg for free, but the spire certainly looks spectacular and dominates the surrounding skyline. The church is lovely and well worth a visit even if you don't intent to go up it

When we visited the weather was quite bad. There was a little bit of a line. The stairs are really narrow so inside there was lot of waiting when you had to let the people come down first. As we got up the view was really nice and totally worth the climb!

Everywhere you go in copenhagen you see this spire enticing to climb. Costs about £3 or free with the copenhagen card. Some steep and narrow passages but well worth it

It was a bit cold when we went here. But the climbing was worth everything. I think you get the best view in Kopenhagen here. And downstairs there is a big and clean toilet! There are only stairs. No elevator.

Spectacular view, not for the faint of heart. A bit challenging with step stairs and more difficult with crowds

There is a long-lived urban legend stating that the architect killed himself by jumping from the top of the spire, when he realised that the spiral turns the wrong way - anticlockwise - around. This is not about Lambert van Haven, since the spire was added to the church almost 50 years after his death, but the designer of the... More

Visited once is good enough if you are fear of height. It was a sunny day while we visited the church tower, yet the wind chill and the height still caused my leg shaking even 15 minutes after I reached the ground. some parts of climb are very steep and you have to give way to each other. I think... More

We spent half an hour climbing the many stairs, but enjoyed the 360 degrees view from above- really worth the small fee. If you have the CPH card - it is free.

Church of Our Savior is the highest point in Copenhagen. As you climb up the stairs, the stairs became narrower and after you reach the top there are still some stairs to climb until you come to the point that the last stair is 60 cms length and of course it is quite windy in autumn and spring. I would... More
