Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Designed for those who prefer little or no walking and want plenty of photo opportunities, this excursion offers the best of both. Sit back and relax in your motorcoach as your guide points out many of the city's most interesting and breathtaking attractions.

As you travel through this amazing city, you'll pass the Old Stock Exchange, once the center of Copenhagen's finance and trade. Over 370 years old, the building is one of the city's oldest. Note the structure's 196-foot "dragon-spire" tower topped with three golden crowns symbolizing the union of the Nordic countries. Next to the Old Stock Exchange is Holmens Church. Built in 1563, it was the site of the 1967 royal wedding of Queen Margrethe, Denmark's reigning monarch. Nearby is the 800-year-old Christiansborg Palace, home to Denmark's Parliament. Another site you'll see is the famed Tivoli Gardens, one of the oldest amusement parks in the world.

Your first photo stop is Amalienborg Palace, the prime residence of the Royal Family, consisting of four equal-sized rococo palaces situated and considered as one of the most beautiful squares in Europe.

Next is a visit to the Gefion Fountain, the largest monument in Copenhagen. The fountain's sculptures depict the Norse myth of the powerful goddess Gefion who turned her sons into oxen and plowed through the earth and sea to create Zealand, an island off the coast of Denmark.

No visit to Copenhagen is complete without seeing the city's most famous symbol - The Little Mermaid. Completed in 1913, this famous statue was erected to express gratitude to Hans Christian Andersen and his world-known fairy tales.

Your return trip back to your ship travels along the same scenic route. Or, you may opt to remain in Copenhagen for independent shopping or sightseeing; however, you're responsible for your own return trip to the ship.

For tours that offer more in-depth exploration with actual visits to one or more sites, see the other options in this port.
