Runde Tårn and its views:

Runde Tårn (Round Tower) from 1642 is situated on Kobmagergade, near Stroget. Actually part of a church, Trinitatis Kirke (Trinity Church), this is Copenhagen´s premier public observation point. There is no elevator, you have to walk upwards through a spiral walkway to get to the outdoor observation point at the top. The entrance is just 25 DKR (2012). Though just 42 m and 9 stories, Runde tårn offers an incredible view over the city and its surroundings.

The observation deck is on the top of Runde Tårn.
