Worth the visit

The view is amazing from the tower and some days it is free entrance. Unfortunately I could not get inside the church, but definitely wither the visit.

It's a hike to the top you won't regret. Not for the faint of heart. Make sure to pick a clear day and wear good shoes.

We were sadly unable to go up the spire but the building is absolutely breathtaking inside and out so highly recommended whether you plan to do the climb or not.

Love the way that the tower spiral is anti clockwise. Makes a clear viewpoint from different parts of the city centre. The legend about the architect throwing himself the top is supposedly untre as he just loved to design differently. Think it depends which you get on the Free Walking Tour as to to which version you get:-)

We learnt about this tower in Jules Verne novel "Voyage to the center of the earth". The climb is really exciting and not tiring at all. You can expect many people in high touristic season. At the end of the stairway you can enjoy a fantastic 360º view of the city. Don't miss it if you are in Copenhagen. We... More

An excellent, and almost a must if visiting Copenhagen, viewpoint where the whole of Copenhagen is visible. It requires a bit of a stomach, as the steps outside the tower are pretty slippery as they are cladded with copper, and the staircase itself narrows in to nothing at the very top of the tower. One way up, one way down,... More

The legend says that the architect intended the spiral outside staircase to turn clockwise around the tower. Upon completion when he realized that it had been made counter-clockwise, he crawled to the top, and in shame threw himself out.

I remember the first time I was up in the tower as a child. It was amazing. I was later married in the church which was magical.

About 400 steps to climb if I'm not mistaken, but completely worth it! Best view of Copenhagen you can get. And it's on the way to Christiana :)

We were told the tower was open but when we arrived, to our disappointment it was closed. Looks great from the outside and internally was pretty stunning too. Worth going - but only if the tower is open (re-opens March)
