“Great view - they shut the church though!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

We were dissapointed when we got there to see a sign outside saying the church was shut for rehearsals. On a Saturday afternoon.

None the less we were delighted that the tower climb was open, something our guide book said was unavailabke November - April. It's a daunting but interesting climb with unrivalled views. Got to say its quite scary though, it's a small viewing platform and we went up two days after a bad cross - European storm so it was very windy. Very worthwhile though!

“Great experience! Awesome view of the city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2013

You can see the tower from the city plaza close to the train station, you have to cross over the bridge but you cant get lost, just follow the tower. Very tired before climbing the tower but the view from there of all the city is just stunning... Prepare your camera! And the inside of the church is a great experience too so get there, look everything and rest a while... BTW in the tower street corner is a small store to buy something to drink after your mouth get dry XD

“unique experience in Copenhagen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2013

Climbing the outside stairwell on the steeple was a great experience. It is a long climb so not for the unfit but it is a special experience with great views. Highly recommended.

“Great view but a daunting climb.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Although the top of the church provides an amazing view of Copenhagen, the climb to the top is somewhat daunting. The internal staircase becomes more and more narrow as you approach the top and access to the external stairs. Unfortunately, as there is no management of the numbers entering the tower, there were times when congestion meant queuing for some time both within the tower and again when climbing the stairs on the outside. This is not really a climb that would suit anybody with even the slightest fear of heights. Allowing those on the descent to pass meant pushing up against the railings....a little unnerving at times. If you've the stomach for heights though, the view makes the climb worth it.

“Scary, but a nice view.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2013

A great church in Copenhagen.
It is easy to get up (a lot of stairs, but manageble).
It is really high, so for those wha are scared of heights it is a challenge, but the view is really amazing. You can see almost all of Copenhagen from up there.
