The Most Charming View in Copenhagen
From the narrow stone staircase in the hollow core, Copenhagen’s most charming view opens at the top of the Round Tower. Centred by the Observatory, there is a 360-degree view all the way to Sweden. For centuries, the view of the city’s roofs and sights from the top of the Round Tower has been one of Copenhagen’s major attractions.
Caspar Fincke’s lattice surrounding the platform shows the royal cypher of King Christian IV and the initials of his motto, “Regna Firmat Pietas” or “Piety strengthens the realms”. From the platform you can explore the towers of the city and during the summer months, the Top Kiosk is open with ice cream, coffee and souvenirs.
