Rundetaarn Re Opens As The Stargazing Season Peaks In Copenhagen

There’s nothing more romantic than looking at the stars.

Look, we know that stargazing is a romantic cliche, but who cares about cliches, really? If we can stare at some beautiful stars then we’re gonna do it, and luckily Copenhagen’s Rundetaarn has now re-opened in time for this emphatic statement.

According to bookmundi.com October is an excellent month for stargazing, and that’s perfect because we can now visit Europe’s oldest functioning observatory – our very own round tower.


Here you can climb 34.8 metres above street level and view the stars from this incredible building, constructed in 1642. Plus, there are exhibitions to view so this place is a veritable goldmine of nice stuff to see. Sometimes there are concerts and everybody who is anybody wants to climb the round tower, with its iconic decorative quality.

Anyway, we’ll stop gushing. You can visit Rundetaarn for 40 DKK per adult and 10 DKK per child (5-15 years old), and you can book tickets via the website. Have fun!
