Copenhagen, the royal capital of Denmark, is one of Europe's oldest capitals. It was a fishing village until the middle of the 12th century, but then grew in importance after being fortified in 1167. Because of its harbor, it soon became a place of commercial importance. Copenhagen has a long history well-integrated with today's modern life. Theaters, museums, art galleries and musical entertainment are among the attractions that make Copenhagen memorable.

  • Castles of North Zealand

    The beautiful North Zealand landscape, with seaside panoramas on one side and impressive manor homes on the other, is often called the Danish Riviera. Author Karen Blixen (Isak Dinesen) once lived here, not far from the setting for Shakespeare's "Hamlet." You will tour one of North Zealand's finest former residences, Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød, which now serves as the National Museum of History. It contains Denmark's most important collection of portraits and historical paintings. The castle's chapel houses an organ built in 1610, the world's oldest organ still in use. Later, in the charming village of Fredensborg, you will have an opportunity to photograph the royal family's summer residence. The lavish, Italian Baroque home was built in the early 1700s and is also used for gala dinners in connection with state visits.

  • Scenic Copenhagen By Sea

    After a stop to view the bronze statue of the Little Mermaid, the world-famous symbol of Copenhagen, you will board a private canal boat and embark on a cruise through Copenhagen's waterways. Colorful homes and businesses cluster around the canals, which are always hubs of activity. During the cruise, you will pass the granite-and-copper Christiansborg Palace (now the Danish Parliament), the Old Stock Exchange, and the picturesque Nyhavn canal area. The canals are wonderfully narrow in old Christianshavn, the site of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and they widen substantially toward Copenhagen harbor, where your canal boat will eventually make its way.

  • Leisurely Highlights of Copenhagen

    An excellent introduction to Copenhagen and its 850-year history, this panoramic driving tour presents some of the city's most scenic areas.

    After leaving the pier, you will pass the serene harbor of Nyhavn, imposing Amalienborg Palace, the royal family's winter residence, 20-acre Tivoli Gardens, and the old Stock Exchange, with its unusual spire formed by entwined dragons' tails. Be on the look-out for the outstanding features of the granite-and-copper Christiansborg Palace, now the Danish Parliament. However, Copenhagen's most cherished symbol is its beguiling Little Mermaid, a life-size bronze figure set along the shoreline. It's inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale of the same name.

    After 2-hours of viewing Copenhagen's landmark sites, your tour will end back at the pier.

    Please note: This tour is panoramic in nature with limited optional walking at any stops made. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned only to participate to the extent of their personal stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; sunglasses; and flat shoes are recommended.

  • Royal Highlights of Copenhagen

    It's a short drive from the pier to Copenhagen's iconic symbol, the bronze statue of the Little Mermaid, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale of the same name. From here, it's a panoramic tour of some of the city's most popular attractions. This includes the Christiansborg Castle (now the Danish Parliament) where a brief exterior photo-stop is made; the Stock Exchange, with its spire formed by entwined dragons' tails; and Nyhavn, a part of the harbor that dates back to the 12th century. The colorful quay here is home to many attractive outdoor cafés and taverns.

    Continuing on, you will see Denmark's crown jewels in the Dutch Renaissance-style Rosenborg Castle, which was built in 1607 for Christian IV. His crown and a gem-studded sword that belonged to Christian III are among the treasures found here. Opened to the public in 1838, the Castle has been uninhabited since 1710 and the Rosenborg interiors are excellently preserved.

    As you make your way back toward the ship, you will pass two other notable landmarks: famed Tivoli Gardens and the nearby Glypotek Art Museum, which includes works by Van Gogh, Renoir and Rodin.

  • Tivoli Gardens & Canal Cruise

    From ship, you can easily walk to the private canal boat that will take you along Copenhagen's waterways. During this pleasant cruise, the city's vibrant 850-year history comes alive in landmarks such as the bronze statue of the Little Mermaid, Christiansborg Palace (now the Danish Parliament), the Old Stock Exchange, and the picturesque Nyhavn canal area, which dates back to the 12th century. You will pass the waterside Ministry of Foreign Affairs in old Christianshaven before entering Copenhagen harbor. Here, you will see the striking Black Diamond, the massive annex to the Royal Library, which is clad with black granite tiles mined in Zimbabwe. After the cruise, transfer to Tivoli Gardens and enjoy free time on your own. Tivoli opened in 1843 as a garden and amusement park, and today it's more popular than ever. Activities range from a quiet stroll through the blossoming flora to an invigorating ride on Denmark's largest roller coaster.

  • A Tour of Two Kingdoms - Denmark to Sweden

    This lovely full-day excursion will first take you on a panoramic city tour of Copenhagen where you will get the chance to see such sights as The Little Mermaid, the world famous symbol of Copenhagen; the residence of the Royal Family, Amalienborg Palace; and beautiful Amaliehaven Park, located at the seafront. Traveling on, you'll pass several other of the main highlights found within Copenhagen, including Christiansborg Castle, now home to the Danish Parliament; the Town Hall Square; Tivoli Gardens; the Black Diamond; and the beautiful old Stock Exchange with its Dragon Spire that dates from 1625.

    From Copenhagen, you'll drive across the bridge that was built in the year 2000 connecting the two kingdoms of Denmark and Sweden. Arriving in Malmö, you'll embark on a tour of this city's most famous landmarks, beginning with a photo stop at the largest park in Malmö, Pildammsparken, which was laid out in preparation for the Baltic Expo in 1914. The Margareta Pavilion from that time remains standing today. Along your route, you'll also pass by the Theatre of Drama and the City Library. The library consists of two buildings, the old part from 1899 and the new part from 1997. The new building was designed by the well known Danish architect Henning Larsen, who also designed the Copenhagen Opera House. Another photo stop will be made outside the Malmö Castle, the oldest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia dating back to 1436. From the old section of Malmö, you will proceed to a new district of the city, The Western Harbor. This area is home to lovely beach promenades, lush green spaces, fabulous views over Oresund, and the spectacular apartment building, Turning Torso. Rising to a height of approximately 623 feet, this is the tallest building in Sweden. Before leaving Malmö, you will also see the three main squares in the city: Stortorget, Gustav Adolfs Torg and Lilla Torg - the most charming of them all. The Lilla Torg square is filled with colorful outdoor restuarants and cafés and you will be afforded some free time in this delightful setting to have some lunch or shop for souvenirs.

    Rejoining your coach, you'll leave Malmö behind and continue on to Lund where a photo stop is scheduled outside what is considered Scandinavia's most distinguished Romanesque-styled cathedral. Next, it's a drive past the University Building and the Astrological Clock before your tour returns to the pier in Copenhagen.

    Please note: Although there is a limited amount of walking on this tour, the coach does make several photo stops. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.

  • Rosenborg Castle & Tivoli Gardens

    Copenhagen, the capital city of the kingdom of Denmark since 1417, has a long history as the Royal city of Denmark, having been associated with a long line of monarchs well before its proclamation as the capital. The location of the city, at the mouth of the Baltic and astride the trade routes between continental Europe and Scandinavia, made it the obvious choice for the Danish monarchs, who at one time reigned over Sweden and Norway as well. Once the city had won royal favor, it attracted a plethora of barons, earls and nobility along with their followers. Traces of the wealth and glamour from those times remain for all to see, in the form of imposing palaces, mansions and churches.

    This enjoyable tour will take you to Rosenborg Castle, built between 1606 and 1617 by King Christian IV, a prodigious instigator of building and construction work, who is often referred to as the builder-king. Today, the castle houses a fine collection of porcelain, silverware and fine art, which has belonged to Danish monarchs through the ages, as well as the Crown Jewels and Coronation regalia. From Rosenborg Castle, you will next drive through the heart of Copenhagen, seeing the Royal Theatre and Town Hall Square.

    From here, it's on to world-famous Tivoli Gardens, the fairytale gardens and theme park which opened its gates in 1843. There will be time provided here to stroll through the park and admire the romantic lakes, pavilions, flower decorations and vivid life of the Danes.

    Re-joining your coach, you'll travel back to the pier, passing by both the Amalienborg Palace, residence of the Royal Danish Family, and the world famous statue of The Little Mermaid, the fairytale creation of Hans Christian Andersen.

    Please note: This tour consists of a moderate amount of walking; however, there are narrow stairs to negotiate and a significant amount of steps and climbing at the castle. Therefore, this tour is not available to wheelchair guests and not recommended for those guests with mobility concerns. Flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested. Camera and video photography are not permitted in the palace as well as handbags, camera bags, jackets, umbrellas and/or backpacks. Due to extensive renovation being conducted in the castle, certain areas may be closed during your visit which is beyond the control of the local operator. The tour price only includes the entrance fee to Tivoli Gardens and does not include any rides or special attractions. Guests electing to extend their stay at Tivoli will need to find their own transportation back to the ship. The order of sites visited may vary in order to avoid congestion at the venues.
