Copenhagen in the early evening

Walking back through the city centre in Copenhagen this evening I realised that the Round Tower was still open. This 17th-century feature of the city looks like a circular church tower but was constructed between 1637 and 1656 for Christian IV as an observatory. A spiral ramp rather than a staircase to the top was built, presumably, so that heavy astronomical equipment could be carried to the top by pack horses or horse-drawn carts. 

The observatory tower is attached to the Trinitatis Church which was the parish church of the students of the university but an area above the church was used for royal antiquities and for the university library.
