Wonderful Copenhagen’s a city of bridge-spanned canals, copper-roofed buildings and manicured parks. It’s one of Europe’s finest capitals, not to mention the seat of the oldest monarchy in the world. Delve into 850 years of history as you get to know this gorgeous city. We’ll take you to all the best bits, including Copenhagen’s famous landmark, the statue of the Little Mermaid. You’ll see the royal residence Amalienborg Palace, City Hall Square, where you’ll get some time for shopping, and Christiansborg Palace, home of the Danish Parliament. Two major fires have led to reconstruction work on the palace, so get ready for three eras of Danish architecture. Just don’t forget your camera – this tour’s packed with don’t-miss photo opportunities.
This tour kicks off with a look around Copenhagen’s city centre. Get ready to see all the highlights - the famous Little Mermaid statue, the Gefion Fountain and Amalienborg Palace to name a few. Then it's time for the highlight of our day – a relaxing mini-cruise along the canals. A chance to see the city from a different perspective. Gliding along the waterways, sail past the Naval Church, the old Stock Exchange and the Christianshavn area, which is brimming with charming houseboats and bridges. Here you’ll disembark and your guide will take you through the streets pointing out the most interesting sights, such as Church of Our Saviour with the outside winding staircase as well as picturesque yards and naval life. Christianshavn was built at the beginning of the 17th century by King Christian IV. It doesn’t end here, there are more sights to be ticked off by coach including the King’s Square, Royal Theatre, Royal Palace and Nyhavn.
