"Rundetårn" Rundetårn Tip by Twan
Rundetårn, Copenhagen: 56 reviews and 112 photos
The 34.8 meters high tower is part of the Trinity complex that was built for the Copenhagen students. The complex also includes a library and a church.
The spiral corridor, 192 meters long and 4.5 meters wide, has not occurred but an ascending path in 7.5 turns around the hollow core upwards. Used to walk this path through to the astronomical observatory, but the last part now just stairs.
On the wall at the front of the tower is a gilded rebus, probably by the king himself has invented. The rebus can be interpreted in different ways, but one assumes that it is written: "Lead, YHWH, the right teaching and justice in the heart of the crowned King Christian IV, 1642"
Standing on top of Rundetårn you have a great view over Copenhagen city. Which gives you a good impression of the city centren and directions to go.
