We were just walking around when I saw the tower and people on it and told my Boyfriend we must go find that place. The reason it didn't get a full 5 stars is the wait to try and go up and down the skinny stairs if it's busy. Otherwise the view is so amazing and to make it all... More

Worth the climb for the view - probably highest point in the city as there are no high rise buildings unlike most European cities. 400 steps to the top - be warned no viewing platform at very top as the steps just fade out as the spiral decreases. half the climb up through the bell tower internally and a bit...

Oh my lord, how scary at the very top, but brilliant views. Even the climb up through the interior was hair raising but fascinating. Well worth the money. Although we are not religious we attended the last part of a service and were shown into a booth. The vicar spoke perfect English. Wonderful organ playing. At the end of the... More

Hidden away in the suburbs a bit the church is pretty inside. Be prepared to wait in line if you want to climb the tower.

I ascended that exterior tower shortly after 10:00. Good thing I was there that early, as the queue got quite long later in the day. It can be a harrowing walk, as the steps get narrower the closer you get to the top. If you are afraid of heights, I don't recommend it. It took five visits to the church... More

You can climb the circular Tower, and you will see some amazing views of Copenhagen. You just need to prepare to climb up a lot of stairs

Omg.....climbing to the top of this spiral was truly grueling & tested every ounce of bravery I had in my body. The 'steps,' if you can call them that, are extremely steep, many times narrow and more ladder-like than step-like. There were several times where there were multiple people trying to squeeze by eachother to go either up or down.... More

The church in itself is beautiful. Statues inside the church are nice. There's an organ as well, and the feeling of being in a medieval church really is present. Can walk to the church from Nyhavn. Can relax on benches outside while having a nutella banana crepe before climbing 452 steps to the top...and of course a very long line!

If you have issue with heights and climbing steep stairs then this church is not for you! After climbing 400 steep steps up the bell tower you emerge to a fantastic 360 degree view of Copenhagen. You can stop on the way up and admire some art installations and the gigantic bells in the tower, just try to be outside... More

The first part of the climb is through inside stairs that are fun to climb but feel narrow at times considering they are two-way. Then you climb the last part outside the top spire: the view is one of the best in town I think, but if it is crowded the stairs towards the top become narrower and narrower. It... More

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighborhood Profile
Christianshavn
Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By, you’ll find Christianshavn. An eclectic area with old brick lanes, houses dating back to the 16th century, and canals which are home to many boats and ships, some of which has been turned into restaurants or even serve as fully furnished homes. The best known attraction in Chistianshavn is Christiania, a “free town” of residents who squat on a former military area. However just a stone’s throw away from Christiania, you’ll find some of the most fashionable waterfront apartment buildings in Copenhagen as well as the splendid Royal Opera House.
