Entry Description

The Round Tower, or Rundetarn, is a great example of the 17th century baroque architecture during the reign of Christian IV, the Dutch king. Its unique signature is the spiral ramp going up the tower. The windows along the ramp ensure the tower is always well lit during the day, allowing for interesting patterns of light on bricks and walls.
