You’ll feel on top of the world when taking in the view from the tower of the Danish Parliament building. Entrance is free, by the way, and the restaurant is highly recommendable.

Standing at a dizzying 90 metres, and with a spiraling walk to the top, this tower is not for the faint of heart. The view from the top is totally worth it, though.

The iconic ZOO Tower from May 1905 is one of the oldest buildings in Copenhagen ZOO. Once you have climbed the 182 steps to the top in the 50-meter-tall tower, you have a wonderful view of Copenhagen’s towers and rooftops.
