Copenhagen in 1850
The picture is taken from The Rundetaarn (Round Tower)
in Copenhagen. You can see some of the sights in Copenhagen in 1850.
In the background you can see Frederiksberg Castle where Frederik the
6th often lived. In the middle of Copenhagen you can see the university
of Copenhagen and our lady`s Church.
Here you can see the entrance to The Round Tower. It's
a 209-metre walk to the top but only 35 metres as the crow flies. The
secret of the mystery is the long causeway that spirals its way upwards,
a distance 7½ times the circumference of the tower. The Round
Tower was originally built in 1642 by Christian IV as an astronomic
observatory. Every year, 400,000 visitors enjoy a splendid view of
the old medieval city from the top of the tower.
