On the day we went it was windy and the tower was closed until 1pm. There was a queue to get in when we got there and a longer one when we left at 2:30pm. They only allow 50 people up the tower at a time and this is with good reason. There are lots of steps and they get narrow and very steep. You also have to go through the bell loft so try not to be there on the hour when the bells ring. Then you get outside and continue going up. The path just stops when it gets too narrow to continue, there is no viewing platform at the top. You have to come back down the same way. There is however a fantastic view!

We didn’t go to the tower, the queue was too long. However the organ is huge and worth a visit. If you’re lucky, the organist will play while you’re there!

For 35 kr you cam climb this tower onto the outside ramps. Narrow stairs/almost ladders and then wind your way up. It can be scary for those afraid of heights but worth it.

From the outside it looks amazing, with gold included in architecture, but from inside is just breathtaking, doesn’t have too many details, but it has enough.The entire time inside church organs were playing. Only one thing I would definitely change but that’s the problem pretty much everywhere in Copenhagen, there’s nothing written in any of the world languages, at least in English. Church tower was closed due to a weather, so I’m sry because I wasn’t able to go upstairs.

I've been to this church a few times with family visiting me in Copenhagen. It is a beautiful church and definitely worth a visit, besides there are other great places to visit nearby so why not make this part of it.

You can walk to the top!
Well, technically you can climb to the top. This is not for the faint hearted, you have to be able to walk, be comfortable with heights and be okay with waiting. When you get close to the top, the stairs turn into a sort of big ladder, and you will have to climb that to get out on the 'roof'. It is worth it though - if you want that beautiful view and shot with your camera.
