Christiansborg Slot Tower, Copenhagen

Tower of Christiansborg Palace 106 meters high - the highest tower in Copenhagen, it offers a magnificent view of the rooftops of the city. Access to the tower is free, and if you want to add a little spice to the experience, you can have lunch in the Tower restaurant.

Christiansborg Palace was once home to kings and queens, but after one of several large fires the royal family moved to Amalienborg Palace in the late 1800s and never returned.

The tower was built as part of the third, current Christiansborg Palace, built in 1907-1928. Like the rest of the palace, it was designed by architect Thorwald Jorgensen.

The tower of Kristiansborg Palace 106 meters high is the highest tower in Copenhagen - 40 centimeters above the tower of the City Hall.
