5. The Round Tower

The Round Tower

The Round Tower is Copenhagen's most iconic 17th-century tower and an observatory. When you think of an observatory tower you think of lots of stairs to climb, but this tower has ascended a spiral ramp to get to the top. Though the ramp doesn't get right to the top, you still need to climb a few steps, which makes an exciting way to climb. Also, don't forget that the views across Copenhagen from the top are well worth the effort of the climb. Plus, take a moment and visit the attached Trinitatis Church.
