The Round Tower - Review

This tower is many things: a historical monument, an astronomical observatory, and a really good place from where to view Copenhageen panoramas. It’s construction in the 17th century was pecifically designed around it’s use for astronomy. Some of the prominent features are the seven and a half turn ramp, built so that horses and carriages could conviniently bring goods up to the top. Another ntoable feature is the toilet, which empties into a sealed and unventilated shaft, quite possibly making it one of the world oldest septic tanks. The tower makes for great photo opputuniites. You can see all the way to Sweden from the Observatory. Take the kids.

The Round Tower, Copenhagen Reviews

  • Fantastic view over the city of Copenhagen! The admission price to the tower was quite low even though there is no student discount. The climb to the top consists mostly of a long circular ramp and at the very top there is a small spiral staircase. It wasn’t too difficult to climb. Along the way are two museum-type rooms (when I was there, one of them was an art exhibition and the other was information about the tower itself). Also there’s a small hole in the wall close to the top of the tower where you can look down and see all the way down through the tower to the ground, so that’s scary but super cool. Definitely don’t miss that!

  • In fact - must see and visit place. And you will have wonderful view on the city from the top. The way up is easy, as steps are only at the very end. Also, be attentive to details - and you will find very interesting and funny things on the way. You could also enjoy the view from every windows - it differs in a nice way. At the top, don’t miss the small room with telescope. And there is also kiosk with souvenirs on the top.

  • It's quite an interesting tower, given that only at the very end do you have to climb steps and most of the way is by walking up a long spiral slope. The views from the top? Well, it's probably one of the best views you can get of the Copenhagen skyline. Unfortunately, the Copenhagen skyline is really quite unremarkable for a city of its size. (Don't get me wrong, the city itself is lovely, with great food, friendly people, and a quite distinctive culture - it's just the skyline is, well, a bit boring to be honest). You climb up the tower, look around, and then climb down again. Probably more fun with young kids.

  • Was not on my “must do” list of things in Copenhagen and it was pushed off to the side. On my last day, I decided to walk over and knock it out. I had just enough time to do it. I am very glad I did. Frankly, it might be a good first thing to do in town. You get a great overview of the city from one of its highest points, and it is a very interesting, well preserved structure. Well worth a visit.

  • One of my favorite places we visited when we were in Copenhagen. Nice art exhibition going on while we were there. Unbeatable view from the top! Lots of photo opportunities! Also a really nice gift shop! Highly recommend if your visiting Copenhagen!
