Make your own way to the cruise jetty in central Copenhagen in time for your preferred departure slot.
Step aboard your boat and find a comfortable spot in the saloon or on the outdoor deck for your 1-hour journey. Then, sit back and take in the picturesque sights as you glide along Copenhagen’s canals and harbor waters. These pretty waterways weave through the history-steeped center, so every turn and twist reveals a new, photo-worthy sight.
Watch for must-sees such as the Little Mermaid statue, inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale; and as you cruise, learn about Copenhagen’s rich history from the onboard guide, who will share illuminating facts and background on the sights.
Drift by the Amalienborg Palace – the winter residence of Denmark’s royals since the 1700s – and pass Copenhagen Opera House, a stunning contemporary building that stands imperiously on the harborside.
Cruise around the pretty canals of Christianshavn, with its cobbled streets, pastel-colored houses and old warehouses. Admire the area’s lovely landmarks, such as the Church of Our Saviour with its winding-staircase spire, and hear how King Christian IV established the district in the 1600s as part of his plans to fortify Copenhagen.
Pass a host of other famous buildings, and snap pictures of the Old Stock Exchange, famous for its unusual spire, as you sail by the island of Slotsholmen in the city center.
Finally, return to the starting jetty at either Nyhavn or Gammel Strand, where your cruise finishes.
