See the city from the top of Our Saviour's Church, built of red and yellow bricks in the Dutch Baroque style. Although builders completed work on the church in 1695, it took nearly six more decades to finish its famous corkscrew spire, which was designed by architect Lauritz de Thurah. According to urban legend, the architect jumped to his death from the top of his creation when he realized it twisted in the counterclockwise direction. The spire reaches a height of 90 m (295 ft) and features an external staircase, which you can climb for a suggested fee. Be sure to explore the interior of the church, noted for housing an altarpiece depicting Jesus and two angels, considered the masterpiece of artist Nicodemus Tessin.

Our Saviour's Church Reviews
esta iglesia es lo unico que me gusto del barrio de cristiania, me hubiera gustado subir a la torre, pero habia muchisima cola y ademas ya no me daban mas las piernas, pero la Iglesia bien vale la pen... more »this church is the only thing that I liked about the neighborhood of Christianity, I would have liked to climb the tower, but there was a lot of tail and besides they did not give me legs anymore, but the Church is well worth visiting
Se byen op fra tårnets top. Tag f.eks ind til Frelser kirken og snegl dig op. Mærk vinden suse i dit hår. Den kommer måske helt ude fra Klampenborg.

It may come out of Klampenborg altogether. This is a song by Gasolin a rock orchestra from Christianshavn that gave identity to many young people in the 70s. This tower is singing. It is very special.. Go for a walk past
I climbed the tower of this church. It was an awesome experience. It provides great panoramic view of the city. Has many interesting artifacts inside while climbing and is a great spot for photography of course. If you go during the week the line to get admitted is usually not that long. Highly recommend to everyone!
This church is pretty special. Plays beautiful bells music with the carillon every day, which you should stick around for if you're nearby at a playtime (I was there at 5pm for that) Also you can climb the stairs, which go all the way to the top, wrapping around the outside of the spire. This is the place to get an amazing aerial view of København. Put it on your to do list!
