Good to Know

Do you have questions regarding prams, guide dogs, wheelchairs, luggage or photography?
Read more about the practicalities as you plan your visit to the Round Tower.


The only way to the top of the Round Tower is through the ascending Spiral Ramp, which is approximately 200 metres in length. Where the Spiral Ramp ends it is followed by two sets of stairs: a wide wooden staircase and a smaller winding of stone leading up to the viewing platform.
Traffic around the two stairs may cause queuing during peak hours and seasons.


Because of the two staircases to the top, the Round Tower sadly is not very accessible for visitors in wheelchairs. Exhibitions and other events in the Library Hall can be accessed, but please note that the incline makes it difficult for non-electrial wheelchairs to climb.

Disability Concession

Guests with disabilities pay regular entry price, but any carer is admitted for free.


Aside from guide and service dogs, you cannot bring dogs or other pets with you in the Round Tower.

Prams and Pushchairs

Prams and pushchairs cannot access the viewing platform because of the stairs. They can be parked either just after the ticket booth near the entrance or by the side before the wooden stairs. Please note that we do not take any responsibility for your personal belongings.


Larger luggage and suitcases cannot be brought into the Round Tower. Sadly, we do not offer any form of luggage storage. Instead we refer you to VisitCopenhagens general recommendations.


This is no elevator in the Round Tower.
