Culture-Church Culture-Historical Building Nature-View point

If you would like a birds eye view of Copenhagen, the Church of Our Saviour (Vor Frelsers Kirke), is one of the few places you will get an overview of this beautiful city. It's located in the Christianshavn quarter of the city. The climb to the top is not for the faint of heart, nor for anyone who might suffer either claustrophobia or vertigo. The passage way leading up is narrow and steep, and when there are other tourists present, there can be quite a few waits for others to come down while you want to go up. The reward, however, is worth it. Along the way up, you'll pass the old workings for the church clock and see in intricate detail how the nearly 400 year old building is held together. When nearly at the top, the last climb is outside, along a narrow path with an iron rail giving an incredible view across the city and over to Sweden. At the very top of the spire, one finds the gilded globe, which is a point of reference in this part of town. I would highly recommend going only in dry weather due to this last section of the climb. I would not recommend the climb to those with small children, nor to anyone not strong enough for the 400 step steep ascent.
