What makes this tour special

During this 6 hour walking tour you will explore Copenhagen’s bustling and cool city centre.  

Royal Copenhagen

You will begin your tour with a visit to Amalienborg Palace, the winter home of the Danish royal family, where you may catch the traditional pomp and ceremony of the Changing of the Royal Guard. The palace also boasts some of the most impressive Rococo architecture found anywhere in Europe.

Little Mermaid

You will then venture inside the Kastellet, a mightily imposing star fortress; built in the shape of a giant pentagon, which has successfully warded off enemy attackers for centuries. Your next stop will be the charming Little Mermaid, designed by talented sculpture Edvard Eriksen, and is one of Copenhagen’s most photographed attractions. You will then head over to Nyhavn where you will have the pleasure of experiencing a delicious traditional Danish lunch, characterised by fresh, local ingredients and simple flavours. 

From here your tour will continue its royal theme as you journey into the impressive 17th century Rosenborg Castle built by one of the most famous Scandinavian kings, Christian IV. Here you will have the chance to enter the stunning Knights’ Hall with original coronation thrones and three life-size silver lions standing guard! Rosenborg also houses an exquisite collection of Flora Danica and one of the world’s finest Venetian glass collections in the world. A short distance from Rosenborg is the stunning Christiansborg Palace, the seat of the Danish Parliament, the Prime Minister’s office and the Supreme Court. Here you will have the chance to learn more about modern Denmark, including its interesting politics and uniquely liberal society.

Stunning Views of Copenhagen

After a short coffee break you will visit the impressive Church of Our Lady, the national cathedral of Denmark, where your expert local guide will discuss the checkered past of this centre of worship in Denmark. Finishing off this fascinating tour, you will make the short climb up Copenhagen’s 17th century Roundtower, where you will be more than rewarded with a picturesque view of the stunning city of Copenhagen. 

We built this tour because 
it ensures that travellers receive a comprehensive understanding of Copenhagen's politics, religion, and culture, whilst exploring landmark sites.
