Round Tower (Rundetårn)
The Rundetårn (or 'Round Tower' in English) is perhaps the best place in Copenhagen to enjoy panoramic views of the city’s skyline with its fairytale old town and many spires. The observation deck is located 35 meters (115 feet) above street level, offering an expansive view of inner Copenhagen
The tower was built by King Christian IV, the famous architectural innovator of Denmark, to be an astronomical observatory. A wrought iron lattice runs along the edge of the platform, featuring Christian IV’s monogram. The Rundetårn was mentioned in two Hans Christian Andersen fairytales and is commonly used as a metric to compare heights of buildings in Denmark.
Great, great value in this card. We used it for 72 hours and the freedom you get with going into each event each day is fabulous. Some times we only had 1/2 an hour before a museum or castle would close and we could go in for the short time before the venue closed. Being also able to use it to get to the airport by the metro is a huge plus.
This was a great investment. We were able to ride trains, get into Tivoli Gardens and other sightseeing venues by just showing the card. Well worth the price in that pricey city.
Highly recommend this card, which covers all public transportation (takes the worry out of having the right amount), and museum admissions. We saved a bundle and took trains freely
The iconic Round Tower is located in central Copenhagen, about a 20 minute walk from town hall. Come take a guided tour to learn about the history of astronomy in Denmark in the 17th century and about the tower and library hall that functions as a museum today.
