From the ship, you’ll walk along the harbour front passing the Langelinie Yacht Marina and stopping for a while at The Little Mermaid. Admire views of the Citadel fortification, built to protect the entrance to Copenhagen Harbour, before stopping at the Gefion Fountain, next to the English Church of St Alban. Pass the Resistance Museum en route to the modern, but elegant Amaliehave, which lies right next to the Amalienborg Palace, residence of the Queen of Denmark.
Close to the Palace is Nyhavn, a fashionable promenade with excellent restaurants and bars. A well deserved break will be made at a local restaurant for refreshments, including a Danish pastry.
The walk continues past the Royal Theatre, over cobblestoned and narrow streets to Højbro Plads, by the Holmens Canal. Cross the street to take a closer look at the exterior of Christiansborg Palace, housing the Danish Parliament and the Royal Reception rooms.
In Gammelstrand, you’ll embark the canal boat for a cruise in the Copenhagen Harbour. Sail past some of the major sights of Copenhagen and enjoy the scenery as you relax after your walk.
This excursion will operate by coach and canal boat. This tour involves approximately 2 – 2½ hours’ walking over cobblestones and level ground. Comfortable, flat, walking shoes are recommended.
