Please arrive 15 minutes prior to start for check-in and training where you will receive your helmet, sign our waiver, get your radio, and meet your guide. You will then be individually trained in driving a Segway on a spacious and quiet training ground until you're comfortable to take to the streets. Don't worry if you haven't tried it before — it is super easy and most people learn it within minutes. The Segway is an incredibly intuitive machine. Some great routes are planned for you on both the 1 and 2-hour tour. All tours begin along the water for a nice stretch in a no-car zone. This is a great way to take off and still see iconic sights such as The Little Mermaid, which is one of the first photo stops. In fact, you will see famous must-see sights on both these tours including Nyhavn, The Royal Opera House, Amalienborg Palace, The Marble Church, Kastellet (The Citadel), as well as some hidden gems. The 1-hour tour covers over 10 of the major monuments and is a fast and fun way to see the city center from Langelinie Kaj all the way to Nyhavn.

A Segway tour is a really great way to get acquainted with Copenhagen, plus you'll get up close to sights where cars are not allowed, and you can cover much more ground faster than you could by foot. You will truly feel the rich history of Copenhagen. But don't worry, the stories are light and fresh but still with substance, like everyone should be on a good day. Just imagine cruising right up on the square at Amalienborg Palace and waving to the Queen, if she's home. Or driving right through Kastellet (The Citadel) — a still functioning military site from the 1600s.  After your tour, you will receive a fun Segway Souvenir and you are very welcome to join your guide for a complimentary organic refreshment, and stay to enjoy the water front view. All tours include photo stops and only consist of small groups for your comfort and safety. Hope you are now ready to Segway cruise Copenhagen.

Copenhagen: CopenHill Ski Pass Including Rental Gear

9. Copenhagen: CopenHill Ski Pass Including Rental Gear

Enjoy the traditional winter sport of skiing year-round at CopenHill. Located in the center of Copenhagen, CopenHill is an active clean energy power plant with a rooftop that has been transformed into a skiing slope. Instead of snow, you will be skiing on an environmentally friendly plastic surface. The roof is 85 meters high, offering astonishing views over the city for an extra special experience. After checking in at the ski-rental station to collect your included rental gear and lift pass, you can start skiing. CopenHill is divided into 3 levels. The upper level is characterized as a black/red piste and is recommended for advanced skiers only. The middle and bottom level is similar to a blue/green piste and recommended for beginners. There is also a slalom course, freestyle park, and, of course, an area for children. The lift systems consist of 4 lifts: the bottom 3 are magic carpet lifts while the upper to steep section is a plate lift. The technique you use to ski on the plastic surface is the same as you would use on real snow, but the feeling will be slightly different. Please remember to start slow and get used to the plastic surface to ensure everyone's safety.

Copenhagen: Little Mermaid Charming Game and Tour

10. Copenhagen: Little Mermaid Charming Game and Tour

Each clue on this quest will lead you from one place to another, giving you precise directions, so you won’t need a map, a GPS, or a guide. After you buy the quest, you will receive an access code that you can use in the app. The quest will take you about 2 hours to complete, but there is no time limit so you can finish it at your own pace. During the quest, you will play the role of a young child who doesn’t believe in fairytales. You have just arrived in Copenhagen to visit your grandmother. As you follow your way towards her house, you are guided by a strange luring voice. Along the way, you encounter enchanted creatures from fairytales and old Norse legends, still lingering in the hidden corners of the city. To play as a large group, one person can purchase access for the entire group by selecting the number of people in the group or each person can purchase their own ticket. Either way, all group members will be able to play the city game on their smartphones. You can play as a group and solve the clues together as you walk or you can split into smaller groups/teams and compete against each other. Each person can also play on their own, separate from the group, and meet the group at the end.

What people are saying about Capital Region of Denmark

I am a senior citizen who wanted to walk through the gardens and not take any rides. I walked the whole perimeter of Tivoli.I loved the beautiful flowers. I liked the fountains and ducks, had a delicious salad in the food court and bought a cute hat.

Tivoli is a must-see attraction in Copenhagen. Beautifully designed and kept, don’t forget forget a stamp on your skin when you visit in the daytime so you can see it looking even more beautiful at night.

Love to be able to skip the long box office queue and price is the same as buying at the box office. Access to all rides, even the haunted house!

Absolutely worth it. I can only recommend it and I would do it again.
