The Round Tower
The Round Tower (Rundetårn): On Købmagergade is the Round Tower (Rundetårn), a 36-meter-high structure built as an observatory in 1642. It now also houses a small collection connected with the famous Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe. A particular treat is the platform, reached by a wide spiral ramp…
The round Tower is one of Denmark's most famous buildings and was built by King Christian IV between 1637 and 1642. You have to walk 35 metres up the spiral ramp to get to the top, where the oldest working astronomical observatory of Europe is located.
It is a beautiful and historic site but worth a visit to this completely round building. In the middle there is a church and thy often have concerts and fun activities.

Rundetaarn (The Round Tower) is situated in the Latin Quarter and is a 36-meter high structure dating back to 1642. The tower is famous for its cobbled spiral walkway.
Charming and quite old round tower along the pedestrian street 'Købmagergade'. It is iconic for Copenhagen, and for a small price, you can enter and walk to the top. It also serves as an astrological observatory.
A cool story with a great view - right in the heart of Copenhagen. Inexpensive entrance, highly recommend!
