a friend told me about this place, It wasn't too hard to find. He remembers it being free of charge but they are now charging per person. It's totally worth it though. quite a few stairs up through the narrow corridors but at the top you get the most amazing view of Copenhagen.

It was like a trip back in time climbing through the old wooden stair ways and ladders... You have a huge number of steps to climb through the tower and then you come out at the top to see a breath taking panoramic view of Copenhagen which is certainly worth the sweating and jerking knees. However it can tire you... More

Beautiful building, a good example of the kind of very stark style of Luteran churches. The spiral bell tower is worth the visit, but do not expect the grandeur and magnificence of Italian or Portuguese and Spanish temples.

A great looking church in Christianshavn. I used the spire as a landmark to guide me to Christiania. Unfortunately it was closed to the public when i arrived due to bad weather! This surprised me as i didn't think the weather was particularly bad, just a bit windy, but nothing serious. So i was a bit dissapointed as i was... More

Great views outside and fun to see the inside of the spire. Didn't seem like a hard climb - the steps are in sections; some are like going up a ladder, others are regular steps and the top ones are very spirally outside. If you're a little claustrophobic or don't like heights this isn't for you. Don't miss visiting the... More

We went to this place to photograph the panorama of Copenhagen from a great height. Rise quite long and hard. If you do not sport regularly, then I suggest you to do exercises a week before the trip. At the top is very scary, the wind is blowing strongly. Then you can sit in church and listen to organ music.

Having seen this from a boat trip we thought we would get closer. We were surprised to find visitors could climb up the tour and rather than stop at some platform continue on a spiral slope to the very pinnacle of the spire itself. Not only were the views spectacular - as Copenhagen is almost perfectly flat -you can see... More

The viewpoint on top is just amazing! You can see all Copenhagen at once. But i would not recommend it to people with fear of heights. It is really narrow, with little incline to the outside, and quite low thin guard rails. But anyway it is a very interesting place to visit and unforgettable memories!

The climb to the top of the spiral is worth the effort for the fantastic 360 degree views of Copenhagen, and different from most towers, as the last part of this one is climbed on the outside of the building! It gets narrower the higher you go, which gives you an incredible feeling of freedom, lots of fun. Perhaps not... More
