Then we get to the Nyhavn channel and walk a little along its picturesque old houses, where H.C.Andersen, the famous Danish fairy-tale writer lived. The next stop is at the very heart of Copenhagen- Christiansborg Palace, the seat of the Danish Parliament and the official royal chambers.

Walk in the footsteps of Hans Christian Andersen
Copenhagen- the city where H.C.Andersen lived and where he wrote most of his fairy tales. During this tour we will walk in the footsteps of H.C.Andersen and see where he lived, when his first fairy tale was published, where he liked to get a cup of coffee with the famous Danish pastry and where he came to enjoy his “smørrebrød”. We shall walk the same streets he once walked and you will feel the same atmosphere of the crooked back streets and charming squares, old courtyards and churches. You will have a stroll in the King’s gardens, where he also liked to walk and where he found inspiration for one of his famous fairy tales. We’ll pass by the Royal Residence and try to guess in what fairy tale he described it. The tour starts at the City Hall Square.

Excursion to Rosenborg Castle
It is no wonder that the Rosenborg Castle is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Copenhagen. Built about 400 years ago by king Christian the 4th as a summer residence, now in the centre of old Copenhagen, the castle is turned into the royal museum of the Danish monarchy. It houses a unique collection of the royal jewels, still worn by Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark, and the crowns of the Danish kings, the royal regalia. Here you can also see wonderful collections of amber and ivory, furniture and pieces of art that belonged to the royal families.Walking in the castle you will learn a lot about the history of the Danish monarchy, its past and present. Every day at 11.30 the royal guards start from their quarters and march through the streets of Copenhagen to Amalienborg Palace.

In the afternoon, canal boat tour.
So if you are in Copenhagen with your friends or family, it is advisable to buy an ice cream and take a harbor tour. It is especially recommended to take the canal cruise in Copenhagen, if the sun is shining and the weather is good.
