We visted the church especially to climb the tower itself. Its about 400 steps right to the very top of the tower but be warned as its at the top of the spire there is no platform. The views of Copenhagen from this height are stunning. Inside the church is beautiful especially the ornate wooden organ that towers above you.

Having seen the beautiful tower from the bus, we really wanted to see the church up close. We hadn't really intended to go inside but we're so glad we did. There is the most magnificent carved wooden organ, supported by 2 Danish royal elephants. The experience was made all the more special by the fact that Christmas decorations were being... More

We climbed the 400 steps to the top of the church to meet a beautiful view of Copenhagen! This is worth doing! And it's not at all pricy!

While visiting Copenhagen in 2013, we visited the Church of Our Saviour. Not far from the public transportation, so that we can actually enjoy the walk in the Christiania section of Copenhagen, and then we climbed the numerous stairs to the top of the gold steeple and the amazing view of Copenhagen all around us. It is worth the climb,... More

FANTASTIC THRILL---climb up the outside of the historic steeple/ spire. Great views of tiled rooftops and city. Do a bit of scouting---to check hours & if outside stairs are open (closed during rain). An incredibly memorable combination of amusement ride, history lesson and architectural treat. Viewing Copenhagen like a bird will give you an appreciation of this lovely city.

We arrived at the church right before Christmas when it was a hub of activity as dancers prepared to practice for a Christmas pageant. The inside of the Church is beautiful and the organ is an amazing sight. The Spire is what brought us here...the spire has an external stairway that spirals around the outside of the spire and is...

I came to the place eager to go up the stairs, but in winter it is forbidden. So I went inside. The interior is traditional white and dark brown, though the organ is really beautiful. In general the church gives a nice impression even if you miss the main chance to enjoy the views

A must-see landmark of the capital! Not to be missed! Rather impressive altar and organ. History is quite interesting and it's also a nice place to sit down and relax after a day of walking.
