The Round Tower Lookout Tower – Observatory – Exhibitions – Concerts.One of the best-known and most popular structures in Denmark, the Round Tower has been a distinctive feature of the Copenhagen skyline since 1642. The Tower once soared far above the rest of the rooftops in the city, and University astronomers studied the stars and planets from the Observatory at the top. The scholars may have forsaken the building a long time ago, but during the winter visitors are still able to gaze at the cosmos from Europe's oldest functioning observatory. The platform that runs around the outside of the Observatory affords views over the old Latin Quarter – from here, you can spot most of the city's famous buildings. The Round Tower does not have an elevator, so visitors have to climb the winding, white-washed Spiral Walk, where kids often hide in the niches, only to jump out shouting “boo!” as adults approach. Halfway up the tower is the entrance to the large and stunningly beautiful Library Hall, which now serves as a popular gallery and concert venue. It hosts several exhibitions a year, and stages concerts almost every week. Above the Library is the Bell Loft, notable for its enormous wooden beams, which were used in the reconstruction of the Tower following the great fire of Copenhagen in 1728. The Loft is also home to a small exhibition of fascinating artefacts from the Tower's history, including Christian IV's wax seal, a tin of medicine produced by Tycho Brahe, and a piece of the bomb that exploded in the Library Hall during the bombardment of Copenhagen in 1807.The Round Tower was built by Christian IV between 1637 and 1642. It was the first part of the Trinitatis Complex, which combined church, library and observatory in a single building.

The Shipyard Museum is about the time where the city’s shipyard built ships, and the working class was growing.

Helsingør Shipyard Museum is a story about hard work, noise, pride, and solidarity in times past where the shipyard whistle controlled the life of the city. Economic as well as work wise, socially, culturally and politically the shipyard was the natural central point.

The shipyard was by far the biggest workplace. When the shipyard whistle announced lunch and closing time it was like experiencing a cycling race. Hundreds of cyclists fought to be the first to come home, whereas the way to work was calmer.

The Shipyard was the driving force in the new Helsingør after the time of Sound Toll that secured thousands of families their bread and butter and tax for the city. The shipyard museum informs of the workplace and the shipyard city over 100 years and secures memories and reminiscences from a time where Helsingør was an industrial town, self-sufficient with jobs.

It was armed with eight torpedo-tubes and could deploy navy seals. When you visit the submarine, you will experience how the conditions were for the crew of 24 sailors. During the Cold War, submarines of the Royal Danish Navy were feared by the enemy due to their low detectability.

In 2002 Sælen participated in NATO counter terrorism operations in the Mediterranean. Shortly before its return to Denmark, the submarine was redirected to the Arabian Gulf where it, along with the Corvette Olfert Fischer, conducted crucial operations during the second war in Iraq.

Sælen was decommissioned in 2004.

Frederikssund Museum, Faergegarden
Frederikssund Museum is Roskilde fjord's cultural history museum. Frederikssund Museum's new permanent exhibition deals with the interaction between man, life around the fjords and Frederikssund's history.

Frederikssund Museum is located just above the Crown Prince Frederiks Bro at Hornsherred in the historic red building from 1893. In the late 1900s, the old Færgegård (ferry house) was used as a guesthouse, where there were both guest rooms, kitchen and utility room that was often rented to families with children who would like to experience the fjord and the scenic surroundings around the area. It is said that Mr. Lorentzen who was hiring out of the farm at that time was a nice man towards the children and were allowed to pick wild raspberries in the woods behind the farm.
