Round Tower (Rundetaarn)#9 in Best Things To Do in Copenhagen
Located a few blocks north of Strøget in downtown Copenhagen, the Round Tower, completed in 1642, is one of the city's many landmarks built during King Christian IV's reign in the 17th century. Designed as an astronomy observatory, the tower still serves that function in some capacity but is best known for its spectacular city views. The building also features the Library Hall, an exhibition space and a music venue.
Visitors say this tower is an architectural marvel, adding that its sunset panoramas are especially breathtaking. But if you're out of shape, some caution that the climb to the top might be a little strenuous.
Adults can climb to the top of the Round Tower for 25 Danish kroner (approximately $4) per person, while kids ages 5 to 15 are charged 5 kroner (or less than $1) each. Children 4 and younger, and travelers with Copenhagen Cards get in for free. Closing hours vary by season, but the tower always opens at 10 a.m. You can get to the property by walking from Rosenborg Castle or taking the metro to Nørreport station. For more information on exact hours and available exhibitions, visit the tower's website.
