City of spires

A city of spires, Copenhagen is known for its horizontal skyline and this view shows it beautifully. The baroque spire of Church of Our Saviour with its spiralling and narrowing external stairs, the Christiansborg Palace, the City Hall and the former Church of St. Nikolaj and the Marble Church can be seen from here. The more modern highrise developments which now dot outlying areas are changing this view.
