The final 150 stairs that lead to the top have been placed on the outside, rather than the inside of the building. Climbing a spiral staircase on the outside of a building was a somewhat terrifying yet exhilarating experience.

Freetown Christiania is an autonomous neighbourhood within the city of Copenhagen consisting about 850 residents and 34 hectares. It is famous and infamous for many reasons and I loved it.

I couldn't take photos of the commercial areas, but these are from the residential section.

Rundetårn (the Round tower) is a 17th-century tower that was built as an astronomical observatory for Christian IV.

IMG_2114.jpg

Christian IV had the corridor made large enough so that the building could be climbed by horse and carriage (which was done in 1726 by the Czar Peter the Great). In 1888 there the tower became part of a bike race and in 1902 the first motorized vehicle ascended the tower.
