What to expect

Join this immersive, fairytale-dusted and landmark-filled experience for a great introduction to Copenhagen and Denmark. Your native guide will take you under their knowledgeable wing and introduce you to fascinating royal dramas, awe-inspiring fairytales and mind-blowing politics.

Upon meeting your guide at one of Copenhagen’s most charming coffee houses, you will start your walk through the historical city centre and past some of the city's most important sights. You will get a historical overview of Denmark's rise and demise, before taking in some of Copenhagen’s magical fairytale dust as you say hi to The Little Mermaid and hear why everything is not at all that it seems with her. You will then hear about real-life Danish royalty tales, insider reports about the Royal Guards and awe-inspiring stories about the royals at Amalienborg, the Royal Palace.

The next stop is at the picturesque harbor canal Nyhavn. While you learn about its colorful and charming history, you will have some time to try and capture the picture-perfect photo of the harbor. You will then go past some of the city's most iconic locations such as Copenhagen’s most famous square, one of its oldest churches, as well as the Old Stock Exchange with its throning dragon spire.

You will stop outside of the Christiansborg Palace which serves as the Danish parliament today, you will learn about Danish politics and the mind-boggling welfare system which has helped Danes earn the title as some of the happiest people in the world many years in a row. Your tour will end at a beautiful square in the heart of Copenhagen right next to the main pedestrian street. Don’t forget to ask your guide for personalized tips on further exploring the city!
