Copenhagen Canal Tour
From $13.28
Enjoy views of Copenhagen from on board a boat navigating the city's famous canals. Learn about the city's highlights through a guide's commentary as you travel, gleaning little-known facts about the Danish capital. Highlights include Christianshavn, Copenhagen Opera House, the famous Little Mermaid Statue, and Amalienborg Palace.
What to Expect
Book your preferred departure time. Cruises leave throughout the day, making it easy to fit this tour into your schedule.
Step aboard, sit on the deck or inside the saloon, and then relax and enjoy the ride. Traveling the canals allows you to cover a lot of ground in a short amount of time and get different views and photo angles than you would if traveling by land. You’ll pass must-see highlights, such as Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen Opera House, the cobblestone-paved Christianshavn neighborhood, the island of Slotsholmen, the Old Stock Exchange, and the spires of the Church of Our Savior. As you travel, listen to engaging commentary from the guide, covering topics from ancient history to modern culture; walk away with knowledge and little-known facts that you otherwise would not be privy to.
Customize the end of your tour by choosing drop-off in either Gammel Strand or Nyhavn.

Great Views

This tour lets you see Copenhagen from a different perspective and provides some historical details about the architecture you pass along the way. The Copenhagen Card included this tour for free as long as you did not start the tour in Nyhavn.

Interesting sites, disappointing audio

Audio guided tour - the sound on the headphones was non existent in a lot of the seats. Only sit outside if you are extremely hardy, and well wrapped up - no blankets are provided. Views from inside the boat were limited, but it was...More

Yes, we bought ours when we arrived. Some boats may be sold out and you'l have to wait for another. We went in March, first thing in the morning and our boat was not full.
