Copenhagen is a city of shapes. From its rectangular lakes and numerous squares to the Trianglen junction in Østerbro, it’s like a gigantic children’s shape puzzle. Furthermore, the whole city is shaped like a massive hand with fingers shooting off north, west and south.

So where’s the round peg, you might ask? Smack in the middle of the city is the answer, where it’s stood since the mid-17th century. After the Little Mermaid, the Round Tower (Rundetaarn) is Copenhagen’s most famous landmark – a colossus towering over the city centre that in reality is only seven storeys high.
