Full description
Discover the sites of central Copenhagen on a 2-hour walking tour. With a local by your side, you’ll learn about the city’s culture, see important historical sites, and stop by lesser-known gems.  The tour kicks off from Kafferiet, one of Copenhagen’s most charming coffee houses. Arrive 10 minutes before the tour start time and you can grab a cup of coffee or another beverage if you’d like to take it along. From the coffee house, your expert guide will take you on a historical highway with tales that will enthrall you. Hear about the greatest moments of Copenhagen’s rich 1000-year long history. It all starts at one of the most iconic fortifications called Kastellet. From there head through a lush, green park that commemorates the heroes of World War II. Encounter one of Copenhagen’s most impressive fountains called the Gefion Fountain. As you walk past, go by a boardwalk with an amazing view of the harbor. Say hi to the iconic Little Mermaid and hear why she’s more epic than you might imagine. Afterward, visit Amalienborg and see the Royal Palace. Here your guide will let you in on insider stories about the Royal Guards and awe-inspiring tales about the royals that only those who have been in the guard know about. You will even get to play a little game that will test your observational skills about where the current head of the Danish royal family, Daisy, lives. Next, walk to the picturesque harbor canal, New Harbor. Get a very special point of view for a memorable photo. Don’t hesitate to ask your guide in assisting in capturing that picture-perfect image. Continue down a little alleyway and walk across one of Copenhagen's most famous squares. Stretch your neck back and admire the spire of one of Copenhagen's most spectacular churches. The tour ends here at this beautiful square, conveniently located right next to the main pedestrian street right in the heart of Copenhagen close to busses, taxis, and metro lines.

Our Tour guide, Amalie (typical danish name, so apologies if misspelt) was fantastic! she was giving us very interesting stories and fact for the different stops of the tour - even be able to spot where the Queen leaves based on the number of chimney on a rooftop! Overall, very recommended to spent some quality time aroud the city.

Most of our fellow travellers were American. Our guide Anne was very knowledgeable, kind, humourous, and had the perfect attitude that helped set the mood and pace of our tour. She stopped for pictures, told us little snippets and gave us additional information about places to check out or dine in. 10/10 recommend this tour for everyone wanting to learn about this city.

Silvester was a very good tour guide who showed Copenhagen with a lot of knowledge and interesting stories. He shared some funny anecdotes that will stick in my memory. This walk gives you a first impression of the diversity of Copenhagen: parks, water, gardens, castles, etc... everything is there. :-)
