Are There Tour Guides?


There are no tour guides to take you up. But don’t worry! There are PLENTY of creepy church-attic-artifacts to keep you entertained on your way up the 250 inside steps of the church. And once you get to the top there are maps to explain all that you can see!

Is it Scary to Climb the Church of Our Savior?

If you are scared of heights, GO FOR IT! You don’t even have to climb to the very tip-top. Because, once you climb just 250 of the 400 steps, you made it to the main viewing platform!

I will be honest, climbing the spiraling stairs on the outside is the scariest part. I got dizzy! It feels like you are spinning around-and-around inside a the most beautiful panoramic view of Copenhagen.
