Description

Discover the marine city of Copenhagen which is going to win your heart with its versatility! Learn why the Danes are considered to be the happiest people in the world, enjoy majestic castles and palaces, marvel at waterfront streets and catch the historic spirit that penetrates the capital of Denmark.

During this comprehensive tour get ready to explore the unique Nordic pearl by bus and on foot. At the arranged time you will be picked up by your professional guide and driver right from the sea port.

Learn about cultural and historical peculiarities that Denmark is famous for during your drive to the city center. Anticipate photo stops on your way by the fairy-tale born Little Mermaid and the Amalienborg Castle - the residence of the Danish Royal Family.

Afterwards proceed to the wonderful Tivoli Gardens, the best amusement park in Copenhagen, and the Town Hall Square, the heart of the city. Surrounded by a variety of architectural masterpieces we make our way towards Christiansborg Palace on a small island just off the main street of the city. It is also the only building in the world that houses all three of a country's branches of government - the Parliament, Prime Ministers Offices and Supreme Court. Nevertheless, there is also a softer side to this center of power - the utterly fascinating opportunity for you to walk the same stairs and halls as the Queen´s guests when invited to The Royal Reception Rooms. The Great Hall itself has a noble, yet simply delightful atmosphere added with the Queen´s Tapestries, a modern day interpretation of the story of Denmark.

Leaving behind the impressive palace ensemble, we find ourselves enjoying one of the most animated locations in Copenhagen - the Stroget pedestrian street. Locals and visitors alike adore this inviting setting often described as the backbone of the capital city. After yards of boutiques, cafés and a medley of buildings, we arrive on the open public square of Kongens Nytorv. Just a stone´s throw away from here is the entertainment district built around the 17th century canals of Nyhavn. It is known as the new harbor area in Copenhagen and it never seizes to impress with elegant boats and vibrantly colored townhouses lining the streets. One could say that the contradictory past of Nyhavn has earned the area an honorable title of the heritage harbor it enjoys today.
We will also save some free time for individual exploring and a quality coffee break in the itinerary to give you a gratifying experience of the city of Copenhagen before heading back to the cruise harbor or your hotel.
