What You Can Expect

City Sightseeing Copenhagen Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

See the sights of Copenhagen by hop-on hop-off bus

Select your desired hop-on hop-off tour from the two available — either the Mermaid Tour or the All Lines Tour with its three routes around Copenhagen — when you book.

Then, when you’re in Denmark's capital, simply hop aboard the open-top, double-decker City Sightseeing bus and set off to explore the sights. Relax into your comfortable seat and listen to the entertaining onboard audio commentary as you travel around your chosen tour route.

On the Mermaid Tour, choose to stay aboard for the roughly 1-hour loop, and drink in the 360-degree views of landmarks such as the Little Mermaid, the harbor statue inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale. Or hop on and hop off as you please at any of the stops to explore top Copenhagen attractions including the Amalienborg Palace, the winter home of the Danish royal family.

On the All Lines Tour (May to September only), admire the views along the three, included city routes — the 1-hour loop of the Mermaid Tour route together with the 1-hour loop of the Carlsberg Tour route and 1-hour loop of the Christiania Tour route. 

Take snaps of the passing sights, such as the beautiful Little Mermaid statue and the Amalienborg Palace, and hop off at any of the stops along the three routes to discover the attractions on foot. 

Perhaps leave the bus at the Tivoli Gardens to spend time at this world-famous amusement park or step off at the Christiansborg Palace, the home of Denmark’s parliament, to take a guided tour of its lavish royal ceremonial rooms. Or maybe hop off at one of Copenhagen's prettiest buildings: Our Saviors Church, famous for its decorative helix spire with its winding staircase. These are just some of the things you can see and do on your hop-on hop-off tour.

Tickets for the Mermaid Tour route are valid for 24 hours from first use, while tickets for the All Lines Tour route are valid for 48 hours from first use. Buses depart regularly from each stop along all the routes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Great tour slightly spoilt by a traffic jam caused by some protest march which locked the traffic in and around the city centre. The commentary on board was really good.

This was the best hop-on hop-off tour I have ever been on. I loved that they would stop and let you get out for 5-10 minutes to get some pictures and then could get right back on without waiting.

If your short on time this is a great way to see the City. The best part was taking the Bus that goes to the Carlsberg Brewery. We spent over 2 hours there.

Ernesto G

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This was a good tour, especially since the meeting points were really easy spots on the map.

Marjorie B

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This is a good tour only we didn't really hop-off. But it was nice to see the whole city on the tour and see the main areas.
