Itinerary

At 8 am we will meet in front of the Frederiks Church.

Once everyone together we will start our tour. Our first stop in our list will be Amalienborg castle where your private guide will provide you with a detailed description about this fascinating place.

“Amalienborg became a royal residence after Christiansborg Castle burned down on the night between 26 and 27 February 1794. In a few days, the king acquired Moltke’s and Schack’s mansions. The mansions are still used to this day by the royal family”

In our way to Nyhavn we will have views of Cristiania across the canal that divides Copenhagen with Amager island plus wonderful views of canals and charming buildings

“For many years, Nyhavn was a place that concentrated sailors and prostitutes. Today’s time Nyhavn harbor has Copenhagen’s closest concentration of restaurants and bars. Denmark’s famous fairy tale poet HC Andersen has lived in Nyhavn three times.”

Right after Nyhavn is Kongens Nytorv a central old square that homes to the Royal Theatre, the D’Angleterre Hotel and the Kunsthal Charlottenborg. In the Middle Ages, the square was a battlefield where city soldiers fought to keep the enemy at bay.

In the way towards the Rundetaarn, we will pass by Kongshavn (Kings garden). Once in Rundetaarn we will climb up the top to enjoy magnificent views of Copenhagen while your guide will explain the history behind this building. The tower at Trinity Church was not intended to be a bell tower, but as an astronomical observatory, a so-called “star castle

Continuing on with our tour we take Kobmagergade walking street in our way to Cristiansborg, Christiansborg Castle has a history of more than 800 years as the kingdom’s center of power, and today the castle houses several institutions of central importance. The Prime Minister’s office, the Supreme Court and the royal representation rooms are also housed here.

The castle, which was magnificently equipped by Eigtved and Thurah (two architects who built this castle), unfortunately burned down in 1794. On that occasion, the royal family moved to Amalienborg”

After exciting 3 hours we arrive to the end. You can extend your tour and combine with Tivoli, Carslberg or Kristiania tours.
