Itinerary

Day 1 - 2

Fly to Copenhagen. Your private driver will welcome you at the arrival hall of the Copenhagen airport and will take you to the city center (the approximate transfer time is 30 minutes).

You will enjoy a privately guided Copenhagen sightseeing tour. Danes are said to be one of the happiest people in the world, and Copenhagen - the world’s most livable city. Why? Because every bit of Copenhagen is designed for life, from the buildings and architecture, the food and the water, the many bikes and the intelligent infrastructure. Copenhagen is a city large enough for every kind of life philosophy, but small enough to bicycle from one end to the other in twenty minutes. It is all there, the urban pulse in the cobbled streets, the castles and bell towers, the artists, makers and the green grass, the mothers, babies and their strollers, the hipsters and their dreams, the prince and the queen.

On this privately guided Copenhagen short walking tour you will see both the old and the new Copenhagen. You will pass main attractions such as Copenhagen Cathedral, Christiansborg Castle, Amalienborg Castle, Rosenborg Castle and Rundetårn.

The tour can be adjusted according to your preferences.

You will then be accommodated at your preferred hotel. We highly recommend one of these:

OPTION 1: Hotel SP34
SP34 in located in Copenhagen’s Latin Quarter. An area all to itself right in the heart of Copenhagen and merely 500 meters from Tivoli. The Latin Quarter is known as a bohemian influenced and quiet area with high ceilings. In this area there is room for diversity – our street, Sankt Peders Stræde, is a small, local street with a world known bicycle shop, pastry shop, good restaurants and design stores. 

OPTION 2: Hotel Herman K
From the moment you step into Hotel Herman K, you get a unique guest experience. The host or hostess will personally take you to your room, making sure you have all that you need. Behind black luxurious curtains, the door to your room awaits  - inside, you will find your new home for a day or more. You can stay in different room types - all reflecting the hotel's exclusive distinctiveness. Soft luxury carpets and elegant white marble stand beautifully in contrast to the raw concrete ceiling and iron louvre. Each room is designed with smart solutions and extravagant features. Some with private balcony or private roof terrace. The beds are custom-designed so you have your very own universe to control all the unique features of the room. Stored inside a marble box you will find your bathroom - like a small hidden gem. The host and hostesses will of course follow you to your room and make sure you have all you need.

Overnight at your preferred hotel.

Day 2 - 3

You will meet your driver and guide at the hotel who will take you to a full day sightseeing tour in North Zealand. It's the perfect place to venture out on a day trip from Copenhagen. This historic region close to the capital is packed full of royal castles, cultural sites and beautiful beaches.

You will start by stopping at museum Lousiana, which is a leading international museum of modern art. Located on the coast, it strikes that rarest of balances between landscape, architecture, and art in a unique interaction that attracts visitors from around the world and makes a visit to Louisiana something special throughout the year.

You will then continue to castle Kronborg, a magnificent renaissance palace and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Kronborg Castle is probably the most famous Danish castle, known worldwide from Shakespeare's Hamlet.

Towering on a promontory in Northern Zealand, Kronborg faces the sound between Elsinore and Helsingborg in Sweden. Grand fortifications with bastions and casemates used to protect the Danish land from unwanted visitors and was home to the royal family until the late 1600 hundreds.

A tour of the castle will take you through beautifully decorated rooms with renaissance and baroque interiors that reveal the residents’ decadent lifestyle. Among the main attractions is Frederik II’s fine ballroom and the statue of Ogier the Dane, a mythical national hero that has been sitting in the cold casemates below the castle for hundreds of years.

Though the castle is an impressive monument, its fame arose with William Shakespeare’s drama of Hamlet that takes place in the chambers of Kronborg.

The duration of this daytrip is about 5 hours.
