About this tour

If you want to tour Copenhagen and learn about its amazing history the Grand Tour by Copenhagen Free Walking Tours is the best fit for you. Meet your expert guides at the designated meeting point by spotting the green umbrellas. You will walk around attractions as the guide tells the story of Copenhagen’s growth from the original hamlet which hardly anyone had ever heard of to a position as the dazzling capital of the Danish Empire and to its current position as one of the world’s well as sung of cities. The reigning monarch Queen Margrethe II can trace her ancestry back to the Viking Age and that makes Denmark the world’s oldest kingdom. Stroll along cobbled squares, narrow streets and old buildings as you search for “Hygge” a concept that is difficult to explain in English but is essentially the idea of a single perfect moment of peace. The guides will also lead you to local cafes where you can eat Danish staples like smørrebrød for a true taste of Copenhagen.
