A lovely historic church with a magnificent carved organ. You can, for a small charge, climb the unusual spiral staircase and it is well worth it for the views over Copenhagen. Plaques have been placed with photos pinpointing the major buildings so you can identify what you are looking at.

This church is a must see. The views are just to die. The church's interior is beautiful too. There are to sets of organs in carved wood that are extraordinary. It was very busy the day we visited the church and the staff in the church tower had no control on how many people they let up. It is very... More

Well worth the effort to get to the top. The view was wonderful even if the last few feet are pretty narrow and might spook people afraid of heights! I would imagine it gets pretty crowded in season but was fine for us. Visit the church as well. There is an amazing organ held up by two elephants

However it is a lot of stairs to reach the top, the view over the city is certainly a good reward for the excercise

We took a trip out here first thing in the morning (so 10am when they opened) and we were fortunate that it wasn't yet busy. I can imagine it gets a little crowded inside when more people are visiting. The stairs are narrow, the bells are huge, and the view is AMAZING!!! I'm terribly afraid of heights, but I pushed...

The Church of our saviour is worth a visit - if you go the long way to the top of the tower you can get a great view over Copenhagen and even get a glimse of Sweden.

Nice view inside and outside. The stairs are small and it's a bit hard to cross but it really worth it

Really worth a visit; the 400 steps take you really high up, giving a great view over the canals, looking out onto the coast. The stairs become very very narrow towards the top, not for those who are scared of heights or tight spaces!

If you want to try out something a bit different, like seeing panoramic views of the cities and provided you are not too scared of heights, this church is not to be missed! The view from the top is great, but it is the experience of climbing the unique spiral staircase which winds itself around the outside of the church... More

This church attracts visitors mainly for the tower, which offers grand views of the city. However, both times we visited, the tower was closed due to windy weather. However, visitors are very welcome to admire the organ playing or the intricate yet understated details of the church, which we did. Highly recommend.
