The Round Tower - Landmark of Copenhagen since 1642
The Round Tower (in danish “Rundetårn”) is a 17th century tower. It is located in central Copenhagen and was built by the danish king Christian IV and it was built as an astronomical observatory. The tower is part of the Trinitatis Complex, with the Trinitatis Church, university chapel and academic library. Today the tower is mostly a tourist attraction and historical sight from which the visitors can enjoy the view over the rooftops of Copenhagen. The tower has a riders staircase that gently slopes its way up through the tower and leads to the top platform situated 34.8 meters above ground. This tourist attraction is well suited for wheelchair users.
