Somewhat tough climb of stairs. We were there in February, the final passage was covered by ice and snow, and very slippery. But the views at the top are well worth the effort! very nice views at night, too.

A steep climb to the top, but a great view of the city. Was a 15min walk from the spot where the stena line boat from frederikshavn docks
