Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Culture, Denmark, Travel

Rundetaarn, Copenhagen

The round tower (Rundetaarn) is a modest structure tucked away smack dab in the middle of town. It’s a great vantage point to admire the charms of the city from above, and definitely a ‘must do’ activity if you are visiting Copenhagen even just for a day, thanks to its proximity to the centre and the relatively little time it takes to climb up this stair-less tower (it’s a spacious, stepless, winding spiral upwards). For a capital city, there is relatively few ‘high rise’ buildings in Copenhagen so you get plenty of unobstructed views far and wide from this tower.

I just love the iconic burnt orange and mint coloured roofs against the familiar silhouettes of city landmarks, with smatterings of construction in between, and some more modern structures in the background like CopenHill (the artificial ski slope you see below – I will post about this place soon!)

Thought this shot was a nice one to end the post on – it’s the beautiful Marmorkirken peeking out!
