City Tours in Copenhagen
A walking tour of the old city of Copenhagen.
No matter which time of the year, there is always much to see in Copenhagen. The following are suggestions which could be part of a walk in and around the old city centre with your tourist guide:
Start at the Town Hall Square, with the huge Town Hall building and its tower and a statue of Hans Christian Andersen. Continuing up Strøget, the world's second longest pedestrian street with its modern shops and cafés, you can stop at the old market place with its Caritas Fountain, given to the city in 1608 by Christian IV, the Renaissance king, whose many building activities still characterize the city. Or continue to the Vor Frue Kirke, Copenhagen's cathedral, and on to the Round Tower, an amazing structure with a walk-way winding to the top from where you have a fantastic view of the city. From here you can explore the narrow streets of the old city to arrive at the Kings New Square. Continue down Nyhavn, the sailor's area, where our poet Hans Christian Andersen rented rooms and wrote the first of his famous fairy tales. Other areas to see are the Amalienborg Square with the winter residences of both Queen Margrethe II and her husband, and that of the Crown Prince Frederik and his family. See Christiansborg Palace, home of the Danish Parliament, called Folketinget.
After your tour, stop at one of the old restaurants serving Danish smørrebrød, the Danish traditional Danish open-faced sandwich.
The contents of the tour should be agreed upon with your guide, who will suggest a timeframe and which sights are to be included.
