Yesterday, Ollie and I went up to the top of the spire of the Church of Our Saviour in Christianhavn. It was a beautiful day so we had a great view over Copenhagen's skyline, and the original part of this spire is that the staircase is, well, on the outside of the spire! It's nearly 100m high and the staircase becomes really narrow at the top. There will be photos of course, but today I am posting a set of images that I took back in May this year. It was a beautiful evening and the light was amazing during the Golden Hour (just before sunset) illuminating the Neo-Baroque style buildings of Christiansborg Palace.
Slotsholmen is Copenhagen's historical centre which has been housing the Danish Government for over 800 years. It is also here the kings lived until 1794. This area called Slotsholmen is also called the Castle Island because it is partly surrounded by Copenhagen's inner harbour, partly by canals. 9 bridges connect Castle Island to the rest of Copenhagen.
