City tour back
Copenhagen is one of the most historic cities in the Baltic region, and on this introduction tour of the Danish Capital you will explore close to 850 years of history. Enjoy the view from your deluxe coach as you pass the City Hall Square with the City Hall. The mile-long pedestrian street Stroget connects the City Hall Square with the King's New Square, and along this street you will find lots of shops, boutiques and cafés. On the other side of the City Hall Square you will find the world famous Tivoli Gardens, founded back in 1843 and offering a wealth of flowers, restaurants and entertainment. Pass the Glyptotek Art Museum with an impressive collection of art. Continue on to Christiansborg Palace, home of the Danish Parliament and the Queen's Reception rooms. On the other side you'll have the old part of Copenhagen lining one of the city's many canals. Pass the old Stock Exchange - a building in Dutch renaissance style, with its spire of entwined dragon tails. Drive through the colourful canal area of Nyhavn, once a disreputable quarter of the city frequented by sailors and consisting of bars and entertainment of questionable taste. It is now a most charming part of Copenhagen, with brightly colored houses along the canal. Amalienborg, the royal winter residence is the next site to be seen. Four identical Rococo palaces surround the spacious octagonal palace square. One is used as the residence of Queen Margrethe II; the second was the residence of the Queen Mother who died in November 2000, the third accommodates the Crown Prince and the fourth is used for visiting royals. Say hello to the world-famous statue of the Little Mermaid who watches over Copenhagen harbour at Langelinie. Drive by the Rosenborg Castle, which houses the crown jewels and a collection of royal memorabilia, such as Christian IV's pearl-studded saddle. The tour is a must for every visitor to Copenhagen.
