This evening, we suggest a visit to the world-famous Tivoli Gardens. This classic amusement park is a lively gathering place for locals, especially in the summer when the gardens are in full bloom. In the evening, you will find the park especially enchanting thanks to the thousands of lights and often, live music. Some of the best eateries in Copenhagen are found in the Tivoli Food Hall, where you can find anything from authentic Danish fare to exciting new food concepts.

Your guide will take you through the reception rooms where you can see the Queen’s tapestries. The seventeen tapestries where presented to the Queen on her 50th birthday in 2000. They depict Denmark’shistory from the past 1000 years. Underneath the palace, you can explore the original palace ruins, some dating back over 800 years ago.

Also on the palace grounds is Royal Library, the largest library in Scandinavia. This library functions as the National Library and library for the University of Copenhagen. An extension, the Black Diamond was built in1999. The dark façade reflects the water as it lies along one of the city’s canals. It is a lovely spot for a shortbreak to grab a seat and enjoy the activity along the canal.

Evening Suggestion

We recommend that you take a canal tour departing from Nyhavn. This is a relaxing way to appreciate thebeauty of Copenhagen’s maritime beauty. We can pre-arrange this as a private or public tour, or you can simply purchase a ticket at one of the docks.

Day 4
Copenhagen | Copenhagen Foodmarket - Copenhagen, Denmark

Today your guide and driver will pick you up in the lobby of your hotel to begin your introduction to North Sealand. Your guide will show you the Louisiana Museum of Contemporary Art, the collection ranges from not only paintings and sculpture but architecture and design to film and photography. You will see the world-famous artists such as Miro, Warhol and Hockney next to little known gems.

You can enjoy lunch at the museum café, which has a summer patio overlooking the sculpture park. (Please note cost of lunch is not included.)

Continuing on, you will visit the village of Elsinore, with its imposing Kronborg Castle; the inspiration and settingfor Shakespeare’s Hamlet.” Kronborg began life in the 1420s as a sort of glorified toll booth, a fortress built byKing Erik of Pomerania to extract payment from ships entering or leaving the narrow sound between Denmark and Sweden that leads to the Baltic Sea. The enduring popularity of Shakespeare has, perhaps, kept Kronborg in the public eye. But even without this literary association, Kronborg still would have been added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site list in 2000 as one of the most important Renaissance castles in Northern Europe.

Exeter International Extraordinary Experience

While exploring the area, you will have the opportunity to visit a North Sealand winery. After touring the vineyards, enjoy a wine tasting.

Evening Suggestion

After a long day of touring, we recommend spending some time soaking in the city of Copenhagen from HotelSander’s fifth story roof terrace, where you can order a snack and drinks at the small bar. The in-house restaurant also offers full service menu.
