Just repeating what almost everyone else has said - the views are great! The ramp design makes the climb very gentle so it’s not an effort. It’s well curated inside, with quirky little signs to follow. And it’s not expensive to visit, by Copenhagen standards.

After first seeing the Round Tower on Travel Man, we were excited to visit and pleased to find it quickly after arriving in Copenhagen. While cheap we had free entry included with our Copenhagen Card and we enjoyed the easy walk to the top. Being...More

Great views of the city from up the top. A fairly easy walk which is like a spiral ramp before coming up to some stairs for the final part. I would highly suggest coming here to get some great photo opportunities.

Since Rundetaarn (Round Tower) is a very old historical building, I decided to visit it as not only is it situated right in the city, but I also get to check it off my list of the places I can visit with the Copenhagen card...More

Interesting history, great views from the windows and from the top. An easy climb. When I was there, there was a wonderful display of tapestries in the Library. Definitely worth a visit!

Denmark knows how to make their sites inviting. Interesting architecture was the highlight, but also include gallery space and a nice lookout area on top.

This is a nice tower which is easily managed with a pram barring the top flight of stairs where kids have to be carried. The only rather odd thing was the mystery game to be played till the top is reached. Otherwise nice.

The Round Tower was definitely worth the climb to the top. The 360 degree views of Copenhagen were wonderful. There are also a few rooms to stop in on the way up or down with exhibits.

You can explore the Dansk building which is nice for me. There’s lots of restaurants and few shops sell souvenir and other stuff. Not much activity can be done here except for a sightseeing and admire Dansk architecture. If you guys into history kind of...More

This tower instead of steps, has a floor which spirals around to the top. It is said that it was made this way so the King could ride his horse to the top and view the city. It's a reasonably easy walk if you have...More

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and

Yes, as are wheelchairs and mobility scooters. There is a tight spiral staircase of about a dozen steps at the very top to gain access to the observation deck so you would need to leave the buggy at the top of the ramp.
