The Church of Our Saviour's spiral steeple with outside stairway beckons across the Christianshavn neighborhood. Sitting almost adjacent to the time-warp hippie commune of Christiania, it is a movingly dignified and beautiful contrast. The sanctuary is simple and spiritual on a grand scale.

The massive organ pipes at the rear of the church rest on the frescoed backs of two large elephants, representing the Royal Order of the Elephant.

We climbed the tower on a Sunday morning just before it got too busy. The climb is not for the faint hearted or those afraid of heights as a fair proportion is done outside. The views from the top are fabulous though and it was well worth the visit.

This building is really unusual with its corkscrew like spire. Looking up at it does give you a strange feeling, well worth a visit.

This was a beautiful representation of the city and its glory. It provides a wonderful view into the history of the city. We original saw the church on a tour and then went back to visit and take pictures later.

The entrance fee is 40 kr. - totally worth it. If you are afraid of stairs and heights don't go there. Because it is a lot of stairs/ladders to climb up and the terrace is not big. The view on a nice day is fantastic! When you are on your way up and are right next to the bell when it starts ringing, cover your ears! It is loud!
