What to Do in Copenhagen During the Day

RUNDETAARN

The Rundetaarn, or Round Tower, may not be one of the most fashionable sights to visit in Copenhagen, but visitors will find it a superb spot to enjoy a stunning vista over the Danish capital.

Built by Christian IV in 1642 to serve as astronomical observation point, the tower can lay claim to being the oldest functioning observatory in Europe. Halfway up the tower is the entrance to the large and beautiful Library Hall, which now serves as a popular gallery and concert venue. It hosts several exhibitions a year and stages concerts almost every week. A lovely place to visit for a romantic sunset during the summer, the Rundetaarn is unique because of the 209 meter winding spiral ramp, which twists 7.5 times around the inside of the tower.
