Golden Days: The Round Tower and the Seven Wonders of the World

Learn more about the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and how they are linked with the Round Tower.

The Round Tower has been called the eighth wonder of the world. The way it looks and the way it is built also refers more or less explicitly to several of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and how they have been perceived and depicted, not least in the Renaissance.

Symbolic Nod

This year’s theme of the historical festival Golden Days is Antiquity. On this occasion, you can dive into hanging gardens, pyramids and giant statues as you ascend the Round Tower’s own Spiral Ramp.

The Spiral Ramp is unique in a Danish context and can be seen as a symbolic nod to one of the canonized wonders, the Lighthouse at Alexandria. How well do you really know your wonders?
