The Bell Loft

All That Wonderful Space

One floor above the Library Hall and two floors above the Trinity Church lies the Bell Loft, where the church’s bells were rung for hundreds of years. The ringing of the bells themselves has occupied a very small part of the large room, though, and throughout history, the loft has been used for a wide variety of purposes.

The fire of Copenhagen in 1728 severely damaged the building and the entire roof had to be rebuilt. Using large Pomeranian pine timbers, the construction was completed in 1731. In the first part of the loft, which is open to the public, you find a small exhibition telling the history of the tower and the church.
