Copenhagen’s Vor Frelsers Kirke (Our Savior’s Church) is famous for its spiraling external staircase.
Climbing the tower at Vor Frelsers Kirke
I have this thing for towers (well, any high place really) and came to Copenhagen knowing I wanted to climb the stairs that spiral around the exterior of the steeple of Vor Frelsers Kirke.
It looks pretty tall, but not so tall as to be intimidating.
The inside portion of the climb to the top is a bit of a challenge, with narrow, uneven steps. It’s a cool space, but a little treacherous.

Finally we are outside, where we find a lovely, gently spiraling stairway and great views over Copenhagen.
Eventually the stairs become too narrow to follow any farther. (You can’t actually climb all the way to the top.)

The older church below the tower is mostly airy and open, with a magnificent organ (supported by a pair of elephants).
