Day 1
Royal Copenhagen |

Today your guide will meet on the pier for your tour of Copenhagen. Begin your tour with a visit to the harbor fortification known as Kastellet; Copenhagen’s defense citadel from 1663. The next point of interest is the impressive Gefion fountain located next to the English Church of St. Alban. Also in this area is the Little Mermaid statue, sculpted by Edvard Eriksen in 1913. The statue has become the symbol of Denmark.

You may also want to spend a bit of time in the beautiful area of Nyhavn, filled with local cafes and restaurants.

Afterwards, your guide will show you Christianborg Castle. The castle is home to the Danish Parliament and where the Queen receives her guests. 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’s history from the past 1000 years.

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 in 1999. The dark façade reflects the water as it lies along one of the city’s canals. It is a lovely spot for a short break to grab a seat and enjoy the activity along the canal.
