The tower is 106 meters high and is the tallest of Copenhagen’s many towers, providing a spectacular view of the city. The tour of the tower is free and can be combined with a visit to the new restaurant run by the acknowledged Danish chef Rasmus Bo Bojesen.
Until 2014 the tower and the upper chambers of Christiansborg have been used as store rooms. However, in 2012 Mogens Lykketoft, Speaker of the Danish Parliament, and the rest of the Presidium decided to open the historical rooms to the public.

It provides you with a magnificent, panoramic view of Copenhagen and on a clear day you can see all the way to Sweden. The viewing platform is situated at a height of 44 metres and has a maximum capacity of 50 people at a time.
Visiting the viewing platform is free of charge but it may be necessary to wait to come up in the lift. Read more about access, opening hours and other practical information.
