Boat tours and rentals

Sail away and see Copenhagen from the waterside. Jump on one of the canal tours or rent a boat on your own.

Walking tours

Copenhagen is small enough for you to experience it by foot. But if you do not know where the good sights are and the stories they tell, then what good does it do? Luckily for you there are lots of great guided tours around the city with very different themes.

Bike tours

Experience Copenhagen the authentic, local way - by bike. Many of the city's local guides offer biking tours to both major sights and local hotspots.

Bus tours

Sightseeing bus tours around the city will take you to the major sights of classic Copenhagen. If you have a little more time to spend - perhaps an entire day - why not explore the sights beyond the capital city?
