History on Exhibit
Since 1884, children with dexterity have been able to assemble paper pieces to their own Round Tower: a school timetable in the company of the world’s most famous elephant. A funny coincidence since Denmark’s highest-ranked order, the Order of the Elephant, has an elephant carrying a tower as its bagde. Some people even think that this tower served as inspiration for Round Tower. See history on exhibit in the Old Library Hall, where you can also buy your own school timetable.
