    hrs Estimate Duration

Discover Copenhagen from two different perspectives. Follow your guide on a walking tour of the city and board a canal boat for a different view from the water.


Begin your Copenhagen experience with a walk along the waterfront and a photo opportunity of ‘Little Mermaid’. Continue your walk through the park, the old citadel, the spectacular water fountain of the Goddess Gefion, and the Gothic church. Arrive at Amalienborg, the elegant winter residence of the Royal Family guarded by the Queen’s soldiers and framed by the dome of the Marble Church on one side and the new Opera House on the other.


Your city walk also takes you to Nyhavn, the 17th century sailor’s quarter lined with colorful cafes and restaurants. Walk across New King’s Square and to the Royal Theater before reaching the medieval part of town with its cobblestone streets, half-timbered houses, and narrow courtyards, and arrive at Christiansborg Palace, seat of the Danish Parliament.


From a nearby point you’ll then board a local canal boat for a leisurely cruise through the canals of Christianshavn. You’ll pass by Our Savior’s Church with its spiral gold steeple, the new wing of the old Royal Library better known as the Black Diamond, and other landmarks before completing your tour. Stay in town and experience the local culture.


Need to Know:

Note: Tour involves approximately 2 miles of walking on mostly level surfaces with 15 steps to reach the canal boat. Tour ends after the canal cruise, approximately 2 miles away from the pier; return to ship will be on your own.
