You may have to queue - both in the gateway outside and - after you have passed an airport-style security check - again in front of the lift/elevator (which only holds 8). This will take you to the restaurant floor, from which a second lift/elevator...More

The view from the tower is breathtaking and the food is excellent. Wonderful Danish fare. So many artistic and tasty dessert choices!

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.

You'll appreciate the views all over Copenhagen. In fact, you can see the Rundetaarn much lower down and lost in the rooftops. To get there, you queue for the slow lifts and unnecessary security check. Strangely it still seemed unpopular, but since it's free, go...More

If you are in Copenhagen, you must visit the The Tower at Christiansborg Castle. It's free and there's a beautiful view from the platform over the city. There is also a restaurant but you have to book in advance and it's rather expencive.

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
