Full description
Looking for the charm of Copenhagen that hides behind cozy street corners where a plethora of quaint, creaky buildings give tribute to a bygone era? Search no further! These old remnants of the city are like finding a needle in a haystack, you have to know where to look. On this small-group tour of Copenhagen's old town, travel back in time and be enchanted as you follow in the footsteps of Copenhagen’s historical roots, revealing the hidden treasures of the city. Walking back through history, you start off by taking a look at Rådhusplatsen, home to Copenhagen City Hall. A step further back in time will bring you to the squares Nytorv and Gammeltorv. You'll journey past the Church of Our Lady (also known as Copenhagen Cathedral), where an Australian commoner became a Crown Princess; look up to the stars like astronomers have done from atop The Round Tower, and take in the colorful facades of the houses surrounding the historical hangout Gråbrødretorv. If you have a sweet tooth like many Danes, you'll enjoy the visit to the Bolsje factory. Before your walking tour ends enjoy a short walk along the main shopping streets, weaving our way in and out of secret alleys that will bring you to a view of Slotsholme. With the impressive Christiansborg Palace, Slotsholmen is a hot spot for both royalty and politicians. There it is, your Copenhagen Old Town Walk – short, sweet and complete.

Silke hat die geführte Tour zu einem sehr persönlichen Erlebnis werden lassen! Mit Humor und authentischem Interesse daran, dass wir eine gute Zeit verbringen, ist sie auf all unsere Fragen eingegangen. Wir hatten wirklich eine tolle Zeit! Ich würde die Tour sofort wieder machen!

Friederike hat uns perfekt durch Kopenhagen geführt. Sie hat uns sehr gutes Wissen zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten der Stadt und hat das sehr spannend vermittelt. Die Zeit verging fast zu schnell. Wir würden diese Führung auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen. Auch unserer 16 jährigen Tochter hat die Führung super gefallen, da auch ihre Erwartungen mehr als erfüllt wurden.

Wir hatten einen super netten Guide, der uns die Altstadt von Kopenhagen gezeigt hat. Das Wetter war fabelhaft, die Tour sehr gut durchdacht mit kleinen geheimen Ecken, die wir alleine nicht gesehen hätten. Unser Guide kannte sich bestens aus und hat uns zum Schluss noch Tipps und Info's gegeben, sowie Fragen beantwortet. Wir können die Tour auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen, waren sehr begeistert!
