Full description
Looking for the charm of Copenhagen that hides behind cozy street corners where a plethora of quaint, creaky buildings give tribute to a bygone era? Search no further! These old remnants of the city are like finding a needle in a haystack, you have to know where to look. On this small-group tour of Copenhagen's old town, travel back in time and be enchanted as you follow in the footsteps of Copenhagen’s historical roots, revealing the hidden treasures of the city. Walking back through history, you start off by taking a look at Rådhusplatsen, home to Copenhagen City Hall. A step further back in time will bring you to the squares Nytorv and Gammeltorv. You'll journey past the Church of Our Lady (also known as Copenhagen Cathedral), where an Australian commoner became a Crown Princess; look up to the stars like astronomers have done from atop The Round Tower, and take in the colorful facades of the houses surrounding the historical hangout Gråbrødretorv. If you have a sweet tooth like many Danes, you'll enjoy the visit to the Bolsje factory. Before your walking tour ends enjoy a short walk along the main shopping streets, weaving our way in and out of secret alleys that will bring you to a view of Slotsholme. With the impressive Christiansborg Palace, Slotsholmen is a hot spot for both royalty and politicians. There it is, your Copenhagen Old Town Walk – short, sweet and complete.

Great guidance, very informative

Friederike guided us perfectly through Copenhagen. She gave us very good knowledge about the sights of the city and conveyed it very excitingly. The time passed almost too quickly. We would definitely recommend this tour. Our 16 year old daughter also really enjoyed the tour, as her expectations were also more than met.

Simply great! =))

We had a super nice guide who showed us the old town of Copenhagen. The weather was fabulous, the tour very well thought out with small secret corners that we would not have seen on our own. Our guide was very knowledgeable and finally gave us tips and information and answered questions. We can definitely recommend the tour, were very enthusiastic!
