The tower of Christiansborg houses two attractions: The view from the top floor (no admission fee) and the restaurant on the floor directly below it. The restaurant in the tower of Christiansborg is the only restaurant in Christiansborg open to the public. The menu changes with the season, but is always designed to give visitors a taste of Danish food culture, produce and traditions. The restaurant is driven by Rasmus Bo Bojesen, who is also behind the restaurant in the Opera.

The Taarnet is part of the Christiansborg Palace complex, so if you go to Christiansborg and have the time, you should go up. Between Taarnet and Rundetaarn... I would pick Rundetaarn for a great city view. Taarnet seems a bit distance in comparison.

Like the title says there is a nice view from up there, but it's a bit cumbersome to get to the top (there's a long queue including a security check like at the airports where you even have to take off your belt.) And after...More

The settings are fantastic - a large room with a window opening towards the inner Christiansborg courtyard. Excellent food and service - a bit overpriced though. Don't miss going up to the observation deck which is open until 9 p.m.

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
