The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

The inside of the church was beautiful and the grand organ was melodious. The church staff was helpful too. Highly recommend for a visit, to learn about the history and if allowed - to trek to the top and get a good view of the entire city.

If you are in Copenhagen, you can not miss this place. It is an old church with the best view I have ever seen. It does not take you a lot of time to climb up to the top, but when you get there, you just want to stay there and have a long gaze at the beautiful city, its architecture and nature.
The highest you can climb is almost 90m above the ground, so you can imagine the view.
I went there with a friend who had a fear of heights, but she said that it is hundred percent worth it.
I would recommend it to anyone, even with a fear, because it is the best spot in CPH and you will never forget the experience (it is also coming out of the comfort zone :)).
Just choose the sunny day if you want the best gaze of the whole city's panorama.

This is a must visit if you are in Copenhagen. The church itself is simply breathtaking inside and the trip up the spire is well worth it if you can make the climb. Just take your time and you can do it! It gives you the most amazing views of the city.

This was an amazing experience. First climbing up the wooden steps all the way to the bells inside the tower was in itself amazing. You can touch the carpentry, smell the wood, see the bells really close up, the clock work. It felt like a priviledge to be allowed to go where people are usually not. Then, you step onto the roof and you climb the stairway to heaven! Try to avoid doing this on a windy day! My husband has a fear of hight, however he really challenged himself and managed to go all the way to the top of the steeple. He had jelly legs but he managed so this proves that you should not let your fear dictate what you can or cannot do. Put it on your "to do" list!

The spire has awesome views of Copenahgen and is well-worth a visit. This was one of the coolest tower climbs I have done in Europe. It does feel a little sketchy at the very top when the external staircase gets really narrow. It isn't too bad at the beginning of the outside spiral staircase, though. It is a must do in Copenhagen.

See this!
One of the most nice clock tower in Europe, (in many’s opinion) to bad the the builder/constructor jumped and killed him self because of the wrong way he built the stair up for right hand soldiers with swords…
What about left handed…!? 🙄😳🤪

Scary but great views. It’s worth it. About ten dollars

Usually a wait to buy your ticket and climb the stairs. Did I mention blimp the stairs? After the stairs, ya get outside fir the view. Then, more steps that are scary, really scary and ya go higher and higher. Incredible views.
Hard to imagine how they built it way back then.

Climbing the steeple of this church allows a great view of Copenhagen. The last part, with this spiral staircase is original even if I had a few moments of vertigo.

Amazing views out of the spire. Just make a quick online reservation since capacity is managed -- which is a good thing since the stairs up are pretty narrow. The church itself is very interesting and different than many of the other churches in the city.
