Guided tours in Copenhagen

Copenhagen has so many options. Something hip and modern - something quite traditional and the whir of history and royalty. If you want to discover and explore Copenhagen, a guided city tour is a really good start.

Meet a local who know the best stories and places

Today, Copenhagen's harbour is an attractive and popular place to explore. The harbour forms a recreational area with its own charming atmosphere. Whether you go on a tour from Nyhavn or perhaps end your tour there, it doesn't really matter, as long as you allow yourself plenty of time to experience the atmosphere. Once Nyhavn was a sneaky quarter, today it is fashionable. However, note that the famous pubs Shanghai and Kahyt are still located in Nyhavn - just as they were back in the days, before the area became hip and fashionable.

In this part of Copenhagen you also have a number of the museums such as the Glyptoteket and the Statens Museum for Kunst - both artmuseums and on the list of the top ten attractions in Copenhagen, for those who like museums. If you appreciate other attractions to museums Amalienborg and Tivoli are probably more up your street.

A relaxing way to experience the city is from the waterfront. A harbour tour with one of the canal boats is a good option if you want to quickly become familiar with many of the city's beautiful sights from a different angle and the harbour guides have a lot of good information for you about the city as seen from the sea and the canal.

It is a different experience to walk the Slotsholmen or in historic Copenhagen, north and east of Christiansborg. Or in Frederiksstaden with royal Amalienborg and the Marble Church. If your are short of time, a guided city tour is the best way to get to know the city and its stories.

Copenhagen - a historic city

A taste of Copenhagen's whirlwind of history: The year is 1658. Copenhagen, Denmark's capital, since the mid-15th century. A city with its royal castle on Slotsholmen, the country's political and cultural centre for centuries. The city is besieged. This last piece of Copenhagen is all that Sweden still has to conquer. The last battle was to be fought in Kastellet. The king would die in his nest - a famous Danish royal quote. Imagine how the citizens must have felt.

Kastellet – Copenhagen's famous fort

Kastellet is still there. Today it counts as a sight. If you really want to feel the history, you must allow yourself to let a guide accompany your tour.

Kastellet is located in the northern part of the city's old harbour, and from here there is a view of the most photographed Danish work of art. One of the biggest tourist attractions in Copenhagen: The Little Mermaid.

Kastellet is an attraction and worth a visit in its own right, and it holds a dramatic history.

Autumn at the time of the Gøngehøvdingen, a Danish military outlaw, and all of Denmark is occupied by the well-trained and war-accustomed soldiers of the Swedish king Karl X Gustav. Quite right, all of Denmark, because in the rest of the kingdom most resistance has ceased. Only Copenhagen is not occupied. But the city is surrounded by the superior troops of the Swedish king and it is difficult to get supplies by sea to the Copenhageners so that they can survive. Winter is near, and when the Øresund freezes over, they can no longer recieve supplies. The soldiers do what they can to strengthen the city's defenses and fortifications and to train Copenhagen's citizens how to defend themselves.

It is far from a given fact that the city's defenders will be able to withstand a heavy Swedish attack. King Frederik III is prepared to fight to the end. If it comes to that, Kastellet is set to be the site of the last battle before Denmark is finally defeated and disappears from the map.

On the morning of 11 February 1659, the attack comes and it is all or nothing for King Frederik III and for the kingdom. Since you are just now reading about Denmark's capital, not about Sweden's largest provincial city, you already know how things went on that day.

The many sights in Copenhagen 

Just west of Kastellet is Østerbro, and just west of Østerbro is Nørrebro - which is probably the most multicultural, cool, trendy, alternative multi-cultural neighborhood in Copenhagen. It takes approximately 45 minutes to walk the distance. Along the way you pass sights such as Rosenborg, where the crown jewels are on show, Statens Naturhistoriske Museum, the State Museum of Natural History, the Botanical Garden with the palm house and Queen Louise's Bridge. Finally, there is the cemetary Assistens Kirkegaard, which today is a most beautiful park as well as the final resting place for a some famous Danes such as: Hans Christian Andersen, Søren Kierkegaard, Niels Bohr, the painter C. W. Eckersberg and many, many others.

There are so many stories to tell, so many different sights and routes through the city that it can seem completely unmanageable. But the guide ensures that you see all the sights and attractions en route – no matter where in Copenhagen.
