Copenhagen: Old Town Guided Walking Tour

1. Copenhagen: Old Town Guided Walking Tour

Looking for the charm of Copenhagen that hides behind cozy street corners where a plethora of quaint, creaky buildings give tribute to a bygone era? Search no further! These old remnants of the city are like finding a needle in a haystack, you have to know where to look. On this small-group tour of Copenhagen's old town, travel back in time and be enchanted as you follow in the footsteps of Copenhagen’s historical roots, revealing the hidden treasures of the city. Walking back through history, you start off by taking a look at Rådhusplatsen, home to Copenhagen City Hall. A step further back in time will bring you to the squares Nytorv and Gammeltorv. You'll journey past the Church of Our Lady (also known as Copenhagen Cathedral), where an Australian commoner became a Crown Princess; look up to the stars like astronomers have done from atop The Round Tower, and take in the colorful facades of the houses surrounding the historical hangout Gråbrødretorv. If you have a sweet tooth like many Danes, you'll enjoy the visit to the Bolsje factory. Before your walking tour ends enjoy a short walk along the main shopping streets, weaving our way in and out of secret alleys that will bring you to a view of Slotsholme. With the impressive Christiansborg Palace, Slotsholmen is a hot spot for both royalty and politicians. There it is, your Copenhagen Old Town Walk – short, sweet and complete.

I absolutely loved this tour. Stuart is incredibly knowledgeable and with a great sense of humor. The tour was interactive, fun, interesting and really informative. I totally recommend it to anyone who wants to know Denmark through the eyes of someone who chose to have his home here after visiting 70 countries and living in more than than 20 of them.

Excellent tour from a very well informed guide. I really enjoyed my 3 hours with Stuart. He was full of knowledge of Copenhagen and has some excellent facts and stories regarding the city and its people.

A walking tour made incredibly enjoyable by our host and guide Edgar. He was spontaneous, relaxed and very very knowledgeable about everything Copenhagen and history overall. Highly recommended.

We were lucky enough to be the only guests that day so we had a true private tour. Edgar our guide was very enthusiastic about the history of Copenhagen and passed it on very well. Great!

Stuart was very knowledgeable and the time flew by.
