A bit out of the way but a must visit. Get there early as it gets crowded and there is only one staircase up and down. The last part of the climb is outside round the spiral and the views are breathtaking. It's a hard climb so not for everyone but the reward at the end is spectacular !

Ashamed to say I haven't climbed it and I still wished I had. My friends loved the scary experience, as the climb is from the outer side of the church. When it is windy, it is more scary, but it worth the view.

Quite a few steps to climb to get to the top but i enjoyed the quirky 'stations' inside of the tower on every level. The building is beautiful we were lucky to hear the bells from inside - sounded wonderful. The view over the whole city is worth the workout! The church has a spectacular great organ in it from...

You have to be fit to get the best from this location as there are several hundred steps up a spiral staircase, that gets very narrow, very steep, and very low ceilings. But once you get to the top, the view is just breathtaking

Great climb to the top - decent workout for vacation :) Quite windy at the top, and slightly crowded with people climbing up and down with little communication. Definitely worth the visit - great views!

this was a must do on our list.. and it sure is an amazing way to see the city and beyond.. it was windy up at the top and a bit scary.. i do admit i hugged the side of the wall to the top and I am not really that afraid of heights... still totally awesome and recommend it.

Located in the Christianhavn area of Copenhagen, not far from Christiana is this amazing church with the spiral top, looking much more middle eastern in appearance to me than European. First thing of note, you'll often find beggars just outside the gates to the church. Just a FYI, they didn't seem very pushy so that was nice. They do charge... More

Its a fun climb and definitely a good view over Copenhagen. It doesn't cost a whole lot, so if you are keen to try and aren't afraid of heights as well as in good enough physical shape to get up, I suggest it. The stairs are steep, they are old and wooden and definitely not for those with height issues.... More

The climb up this church is quite tight as you go up and down the same stairs - and they are narrow. They really need a staff member at the top and bottom of the tighter climbs so it flows better and isnt super tight. Otherwise, a pretty church with an unusual outside tower. Would recommend if in the city... More

Staying in Christianshavn

Neighbourhood Profile
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 area. However just a stone’s throw away from Christiania, you’ll find some of the most fashionable waterfront apartment buildings in Copenhagen as well as the splendid Royal Opera House.
