Copenhagen City

Where do you find the Danes if not on their bikes? The harbourfront, of course! On our Copenhagen City Private Walking Tour, we combine iconic waterfront sites with blasts from the past. Be sure to bring your camera!

The story about the tour

Copenhageners love the water! For centuries, they have thrived by the seaside as a centre of trade, tourism, recreation; you name it! From Viking longboats to cruise ships, numerous people have arrived in Copenhagen by water, or if not, they find the water at some point (usually on a canal cruise). Therefore, it’s fitting that we cover famous Danes, iconic sights and blasts from the past near the water on our Copenhagen City Private Walking Tour

Have you ever wondered why the Danes have been named the happiest people in the world? Or how many fairy tales Hans Christian Andersen wrote? Wonder no longer! We begin with the story of Christiansborg Palace, a royal and political meeting ground. Hopping along, we’ll uncover the colourful townhouses of Nyhavn; appreciate the performing arts and Danish artists; and check out The Marble Church, neighbour to Amalienborg Palace, home of Queen Margarethe II, Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary. 

We’ll finish the inner-city tales of our private Copenhagen City walk by the waterside at Kongens Nytorv, where you’re just a couple of minute’s walk from Nyhavn, one location to pick up a canal tour from (if you haven’t done so already, now’s the time)! An extra few minutes will bring you to the former summer residence, Rosenborg Castle and The King’s Park, while within 15 minutes, you can be back at Christiansborg Palace to climb to the top of the tower for a fantastic view of the city. If the Danes aren’t on their bikes between one place and another, it’s within walking distance!
