I recommend that you do not visit this on a warm summer day. It is quite a climb up the stairs just to reach the first level of the tower. You can get to the top of the tower but it can be very crowded and the path is narrow. Not recommended for kids below 8 years. Great view of... More

This church is very unique from other churches you'll see in Europe and I definitely enjoyed my visit. Do note that the tower has on and off seasons! I went on a Sunday and an organ player was playing some really beautiful music! It is a little out the way from most of the other sights in Copenhagen, but is... More

I made it up to the bells. There was a whole troop of well-behaved children who went up past me, then back down again. I'd rather be embarrassed than frozen in terror, though.

We came on a cold windy day so the staircase was closed to tourists. Nevertheless we had a good conversation with a male member of the church who was selling postcards inside. Before purchasing any postcards he gave us a free A5 size factual card on the church with 10 interesting facts. Apparently there are 40 elephants dotted around the... More

There is a stuning bird eye's view on top of the tower. You can see around copenhagen from here. It's quite high to arrived at the top and is swaying when the wind is blowing. Anyways.. it is the great place to go and take a deep breath!

Touring this church and climbing the stairs to the top was just amazing. The stairs are tight and part of the stairs, at the top, are on the outside. On a windy day, it was a bit daunting. The views from the top were beautiful and well worth the climb (and the wind).

Such a beautiful building and that spire is just wonderful to look at even as you walk round the city. Shame it was shut and you could not walk up the outside spire, I think is is shut certain times of the year due to weather

Teens loved it! I'm almost 50 and in medium shape, and I made the climb. It's claustrophobic and amazingly tight. There's only one route to go both up and down, which is a bit logistically awkward. When you make it outside to the spire, it is super tight. If you are afraid of heights, be warned -- the spiral steps... More

We have climbed to the top of many church steeples--but never on the outside of the tower. So climbing the steps of the church of our Savior was a unique experience and well worth the effort!. We arrived close to closing time and the attendants were so very nice and allowed us to go up anyway. The staircase begins ordinarily... More

I like to push my boundaries. This certainly pushed them to the limits. Maybe it was a bit daft for someone with a terror of heights to try and climb the 400 steps to the summit of the spire - on the outside! But I couldn't resist and kept up with my companions until the last 5 steps - then... More

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighborhood Profile
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.
