See three fantastic and very different Danish castles and everything in between! We start in the oldest part of the city and see the pedestrian shopping street, the Kings Garden too at Rosenborg castle!
We make our way to Amalienborg and if we are lucky the changing of the guard at the Queen's residence. This tour will also bring you to the Parliament, which is a castle dating back to the middle ages. Experience all the places the locals enjoy and a waterfront view too.
We meet at the historic Kultorv (Coal Square), which is located close to Nørreport station and begin our walk on a charming pedestrian street in the Latin Quarter. The Round Tower is one of the first iconic buildings we see built by King Christian the 4th, finished in 1642. It is right across the street from one of Copenhagens oldest buildings remaining after all the fires, from 1536. Moving on, we make our way to the Kings Garden and walk on the same paths that Knights and Ladies did in the 1600s!
Rosenborg Palace dominates the horizon with its beautiful Dutch Renaissance style and moats! Moving onwards past a statue of Hans Christian Andersen and an outdoor painting theater, we go on the old Queen's retreat path towards the current Queen's residence in the locality of Frederikstad, at Amalienborg. Perhaps there will be the changing of her Life Guards. Out towards the water so important to the history of Copenhagen, historically known as the merchant city, we see the iconic Opera House.
Making our way to the third castle, we pass the National Bank and well known Nyhavn with all its colorful buildings, restaurants and charming harbor ambiance. We finish at the parliament located in Christiansborg and just opposite a canal. Perfect to take a canal tour if you want to sit down a bit after our wonderful tour.
