The Round Tower

Copenhagen, Denmark
4.5 / 10
An ancient 17th century observatory and part of a complex of university buildings. Several centuries ago, the famous Danish astronomers P. Horrebou and O. Römer worked here. The tower is mentioned in one of the tales of G.Kh. Andersen. In the upper tier of the structure is a planetarium, where a wide spiral staircase leads. One of the engravings on the wall depicts Tsar Peter I, who climbed the tower on horseback in 1716.
