Copenhagen is a city of spires. Without many tall modern structures on its skyline, the buildings that stand out are the architectural statements of past centuries. Of the churches, the most dramatic is the Church of Our Saviour in Christianshavn. Its spire has a staircase winding around all the way to the top. Are you brave enough to climb it?
In the secular world, the old stock exchange has the most distinctive spire. It consists of the tails of four dragons crouching at its base. The building is located on the island of Slotsholmen, which is also home to a modern masterpiece, the extension of the Royal Library, aptly nicknamed the Black Diamond.
