Lovely church and was open to the public. Unfortunately we were unable to climb the tower, due to it being shut until 23rd Feb.

Discovered this church when we went on a canal tour of Copenhagen. Most climbs to close to the top of a church spire are normally done inside the spire. This one was on the outside! Apparently it is a left-hand spiral and should have been...More

There can be long queues here but this church gives you the best views of Copenhagen and you can see across to Sweden on a clear day. Don't attempt if you are too claustrophobic.

We stumbled on this church and went inside for a look to arrive just in time to listen to the pipe Oran being played. It was wonderful. We would have liked to have climb up the steeple but it is closed in winter.

The curch is very beautiful and take some time to study the history prior to visiting the curch. Especially the story about the spiral stairs leading to the top of the spire.

Just across one of the many bridges from Indre By,
you’ll find Christianshavn. An eclectic area with old
brick lanes, houses dating back to the 16th century,
and canals which are home to many boats and ships,
some of which has been turned into restaurants or even
serve as fully furnished homes. The best known
attraction in Chistianshavn is Christiania, a “free
town” of residents who squat on a former military

It’s a long climb, and parts of it are on more of a ladder than steps. I’d say if you feel you have balance issues, don’t try it.
