Welcome to the Round Tower! Since our reopening in May, we have introduced a number of measures and precautions in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and improve the safety during your visit:
- Until for the time being 3 January, wearing a face mask is mandatory during your entire visit in the Round Tower.
- The autumn and winter programme for observations on Tuesdays and Wednesdays in the Observatory has been cancelled. Hence the Round Tower closes every day at 18.
- It is possible to book a guided tour for schools with young people under the age of 21 years. In the Observatory, there are requirements for distance and only 10 people are allowed at a time. The person responsible for the group must help observing the requirements.
- We recommend paying with credit card rather than cash.
The Round Tower’s employees are instructed to follow the Danish Health Authority’s guidelines both for their own sake and for the sake of our guests. We expect our guests to follow the Danish Health Authority’s guidelines as well.
When buying a ticket, you will meet the employees behind a glass pane and in the shop in the Library Hall, they are sitting behind a plexiglass window. All public areas are cleaned as often as possible.
To help our guests keep a good distance, we have introduced the following precautions:
Limited number of guests
We keep track of the number of guests throughout the day and reserve the right to temporarily close the access to the tower.
Keeping a good distance
In selected areas with the risk of visitors standing too close, markings on the ground will remind you to keep a good distance. This applies in particular to the entrance to the Round Tower, the access area to the platform, in front of toilets and in the shop and café in the Library Hall. In order to ensure the best possible passage in the narrow stone staircase at the top of the tower, we have put up a special traffic signal.
Increased cleaning and hygiene
Our employees frequently clean the public areas, toilets and other touch points throughout the day. Wherever possible, we are offering hand sanitizer for the use of our visitors.
For annual pass holders, we can inform you that annual passes will be extended until the end of 2021.
