Create an itinerary including Our Saviour's Church
See the city from the top of Our Saviour's Church, built of red and yellow bricks in the Dutch Baroque style. Although builders completed work on the church in 1695, it took nearly six more decades to finish its famous corkscrew spire, which was designed by architect Lauritz de Thurah. According to urban legend, the architect jumped to his death from the top of his creation when he realized it twisted in the counterclockwise direction. The spire reaches a height of 90 m (295 ft) and features an external staircase, which you can climb for a suggested fee. Be sure to explore the interior of the church, noted for housing an altarpiece depicting Jesus and two angels, considered the masterpiece of artist Nicodemus Tessin.

  • Very beautiful, definitely a must see! In weekend you need to book a slot to go up to the tower, on weekdays this is usually not the case and you can walk in. The view is incredible. Make sure to go on a sunny or non-cloudy/misty to have the best views.
  • I think this was my highlight of Copenhagen, because you could see the whole city from above. The stair case became a little scary on the upper part (inside) but outside it was fine again (except for the height, if you're afraid of nights). I felt pretty safe up there and had a good time.
