I was really lucky when visiting this church - the weather was great! So when climbing on the very top I could see all the way to The Oresund bridge connecting Denmark with Sweden. For 35 DKK (or 25 with a studentcard) you can enjoy beautiful views on Copenhagen. Beware, there are many stairs awaiting for you on the way... More

WOW! We saw this church from our canal tour and knew we had to attempt the climb. It was very strenuous and had some very steep stairs, but it was SO worth it. The view is amazing and the memory of it will last forever. If you have the legs for this...do it. Forever forward, any time you see a... More

The spire of Our Saviour stands out with its gold colored external stairway spiraling up against a black roof. Well worth the climb to the top to enjoy the views. Inside the organ is a beautifully carved wood affair that dominates the entrance.

We attended service on a Sunday. The service was exactly what we expected. We were even present for a baptism during the service. The building is really beautiful. The acoustics are very good.

The church is a bit out of downtown, but is is worth visiting it. The tower is mostly visited as you can climb up to have a great view on the city. Most of the time you go up inside, in the end it gets a bit narrow. Then you can go out to narrow terrace. If you are ready... More

What must be said, I love churches. So I fell in love with the altar background made of small blue pieces of different shades; with a concept of placing the main organs as if they were carried by two huge elephants (a Danish royal animal); in the twisted-staircase tower from which you have a wonderful view on Copenhagen. Do I... More

The Church of Our Savior is located in the Christianshavn area of Copenhagen, near the infamous Christiania commune. It was reopened to the public in 2010 after an extensive restoration and is well worth a visit. The interior is beautiful, with a uniquely-designed pipe organ, but the climb up the beautiful gilded spire is the best reason to visit! Unlike... More

The tower is already an eye-catcher. Never seen such corkscrew spire before and external staircase?, it's unique. 400 steps climbing to the top of the spire is a hard work, not for those with knies problem. But...... when you're up there, whole Copenhagen is under your feet, it's all yours. Beautiful view and you will never forget it. I'm happy... More
