“Good experience and view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

A bit of effort required to climb the stairs to the top (and co-ordinate with the people trying to come down them) but well worth the effort to see both the inside of the tower and then climb the spiral outside. The views were great and we could see as far as Sweden.

Stairs are steep in places - not an attraction for those with small children or those with difficulty walking up or down steep staircases

Also very convenient to walk over the road to Christiania and have a walk around to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and alternative lifestyles.

“Breath taking views of Copenhagen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013 via mobile

The untouched staircase inside the church is a great way to get to the spiral staircase on the outside of the pint of the church. The 360 views of Copenhagen are amazing and you could spend a long time up the top just gazing at the city. Malmo is also visible from the top so choose a clear day.
The climb to the top could be quite hard for some so take your time but it is definitely worth every step.

Well worth the climb! A must see in Copenhagen and very close to other attractions such as Christiana and canal tours.

“Stunning”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

We had rough luck to choose a day when there was a wedding on so didnt get to explore as much as we would have liked. It was also very busy and trying to access to go up to the top with a push chair was a bit tricky so we decided not to, thats not to say there is not the facility to do this, just that we did not try. From the outside it is a beautiful building that is definately a must-see!

“Definitely worth a climb!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

My boyfriend and I got a student discount on climbing this tower, and it was definitely worth climbing the 400 odd steps to the top of the 95m tower. On a clear sunny day as it was, the view was stunning and you could see right across the city centre. I would definitely recommend climbing this tower as opposed to the Round Tower (Rundetarn) if you are pressed for time, as the view near the harbour is far superior in Christianshavn!
