Trinitatis Church Square

Trinitatis Kirkeplads was established in 1982 in connection with the restoration of Rundetårn (the Round Tower), Trinitatis Kirke (Trinitatis Church) and the construction of Trinitatis Kirkes Menighedshus (parish hall). Access from Pilestræde is through an alley and via a sculptural flight of steps. The flight of steps, which has two sides with steps and an intermediate ramp, solves the level difference of app. one metre and forms a partition between the orientation of the paving on the church square and in the alley. At the restoration of Rundetårn the old sandstone corbels from the tower platform were laid out on the church square's granite paving and along the ramp, and today the animal-like sculptures serve as benches.
