Sometimes when I’m visiting Copenhagen for the day, I like to go up to the top of the 17th century observatory called the Rundetårn.
The walk up to the top of the tower is a cobblestone spiral ramp. In the 18th century, Peter the Great rode a horse up to the top while visiting. Toward the end of the 19th century, bicycle races began to be held inside the tower as well.
The view from the top is pretty special. But it’s the interior textures and history that always catch my eye.
