The Round Tower in the middle of Copenhagen, dating from 1642, is full of history. Read about it on this site, the historical annex of the Round Tower web page. New stories about the Round Tower are added once in a while. Enjoy!
History on Exhibit
The current exhibition in the Round Tower, “GAZE”, comprises a virtual reality experience that is inspired by the old panorama binoculars at the top of the tower. On that occasion we tell about telescopes and binoculars in the Round Tower and exhibit a pair of small binoculars made by the same firm that produced the large telescope in the observatory. See history on exhibit in the Library Hall.
