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

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.
