The Captain welcomes you aboard while the ship slowly leaves the Quay. The course is set for the first bridge, The Inner Harbour Bridge and when passing you will have the New Harbour (Nyhavn) on the starboard. Before we reach the Knippelsbro, you can catch sight of the Circle Bridge and into the channel the Stock Exchange and Christiansborg (the Parliament). When we pass the Black Diamond (the Royal Library) and the biggest bridge in Copenhagen, Langebro, opens, it becomes almost a majestic event. After Langebro the Port of Copenhagen starts to change with the Kalvebod Wave and Islands Brygge with its harbour baths, the bicycle bridge, Bryggebroen, which leads to the Bicycle Snake and all the way down to the South Harbour. Teglværksbroen and Sluseløbet will be the turnaround, and the Historic Tall Ship will head back to the Admiral Quay. Enjoy the views – they don’t come any better! And the crew are happy to tell you more about the ship during the tour.
