It is a funny experience to walk in circles to come up to the tower. Rundetarn (Round Tower) doesnt have stairs. It has a nice view of Copenhagen from the top, There was also an art gallery. It definitely worth to visit.

We visited the round tower as we thought it was a must do in Copenhagen and we were not disappointed. The walk up the ramp is easy until you get to a steep and narrow spiral staircase where people are coming up and down at...More

Good fun attraction for families. We arrived at opening time so had a clear run up to the top. Our two boys enjoyed following this unique spiral around, exploring the nooks and crannies, and of course the view from the top. Good for energetic little...More

The tower is pretty nice in itself, but the best part is probably the view over the central Copenhagen. Inside the tower there are two floors of exhibisions, during our visit one was arcitecturral designs in circles.

I only cost about 3 dollars American to enter this cool structure, or it is included with the Copenhagen card. The spiraling ramp takes you to the top for some great views of the city. There are a couple small museums on the way up...More

Sometimes when you visit a city you just need to say I did that. Felt this was one because of its historical significance and uniqueness. You can take your time as you go round and round the tower, and then at the top you are...More

This is a unique experience going around and upwards on this spiral ramp seven and half times—over 120 feet. The cylindrical tower has a walkway wide enough to fit a large horse carriage as intended. The walkway comes to an end where you have to...More

Built by Christian IV, almost bankrupted Copenhagen, but Happy he went ahead. It was built as an Observatory in the 17th century. You should be in good shape, and have good knees, its a long way up, but worth the pain! Its on Købmagergade ,...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding

The way up is not so long and one may take some time to do so. It is an even floor slope going round and round and not a hard climb. One can walk beside the furthest wall and doing so it is less steep. The view from the... More

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.
