Round Tower

The Rundetårn (English: Round Tower) is a 17th-century tower located in central Copenhagen, and was built during the reign of Christian IV. It was built as an astronomical observatory and is today one of the few high spots for tourists to see Copenhagen.

A fun fact about it: In 1989, Thomas Olsen went up and down the Round Tower on a unicycle in 1 minute and 48.7 seconds, which is a world record.
