What You Can Expect

Copenhagen Canal Tour

Relax on your Copenhagen sightseeing cruise as you pass through the neighborhood of Christianshavn

Hop aboard your sightseeing cruise boat in Nyhavn or Gammel Strand in central Copenhagen. Take a seat in the boat’s lower saloon or stroll around the deck, admiring the city sights as you cruise. Canals zigzag through Copenhagen, and the city’s top waterfront sights appear around every twist and turn.

Watch out for attractions like the Little Mermaid, an iconic Edvard Eriksen statue, carved to look like a character from a Hans Christian Anderson fairy tale. Learn the history of Copenhagen as your onboard guide points out key sights.

Hear about Amalienborg Castle – seat of the Danish royal family since the 18th century – while admiring the site’s elegant façade, and gaze at Copenhagen Opera House, a futuristic-looking building that juts out onto the waterfront.

Glide through Christianshavn canal quarter and hear trivia about King Christian IV, who established the neighborhood in the early 17th century. The area is home to several of the city’s quirky sights such as the Church of Our Saviour (Vor Frelsers Kirke) with its elaborate spire.

Pass the Old Stock Exchange near the island of Slotsholmen, and then return back to the start point – hopping off your boat at either Nyhavn or Gammel Strand.
