Round Tower (Rundetårn) Tours

789 Reviews

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.

Practical Info

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.
