For hundreds of years the Danes were an unstoppable force of warriors, explorers and settlers – uniting Scandinavia, discovering America and bringing terror to the shores of Europe. Today Copenhagen’s history of fire and bloody battles lies hidden behind picturesque streets and colorful harbors.

As the days of conquest passed, Danish power was replaced with a rich cultural legacy of writers, artists and philosophers. The fairytale feel of the city where Hans Christian Andersen wrote is the home of incredible stories and unbelievably true histories: Viking adventurers; pirate-hunting Bishop Absalon; daring Danish WWII resistance fighters and more.

Our local expert guides will take you on a 2.5 hour* walking tour through 6000 years of Copenhagen’s history and you’ll find out why the Danes are some of the happiest people in the world!

 

*Average tour length. The Copenhagen Free Tour usually ends by the Amalienborg Palace. The independent guides with whom we work have your best interests in mind; while the tour usually includes the sites and stories below and lasts about 2.5 hours, your tour may vary depending on what your guide thinks is best for your group!
