Good experience, the oldest Observatory that is still functional in Europe. This would probably not be for someone who has limited mobility (leg or back problems) but it is interesting and it's true- it's straight up to the top, no stairs- until you get to...More

We visited the round tower which is really quite cool and it is joined onto a church. Quite a hike to get to the top but it is a nice view once you are there.

It's an interesting tower to climb as it has no steps. There is a room which hosts exhibitions. There are some information boards on the way up (or down). At the top, you get a good view on the city. It's totally worth the price!

A nice place to visit with good views of Copenhagen. The glass floor in the middle of the tower is terrifying, but a good feature nonetheless.

You don't need to worry about the endless stairs to climb up for a good view in this tower. There's no stairs. Just a smooth curved pathway to go up. Only a few stair steps on the very top end.

Yes, as are wheelchairs and mobility scooters. There is a tight spiral staircase of about a dozen steps at the very top to gain access to the observation deck so you would need to leave the buggy at the top of the ramp.
