Approximately 4 hours
Moderate Activity 

On a panoramic drive through the streets of Copenhagen, travel through the city to see the Stock Exchange, Christiansborg Palace, the Danish Parliament, City Hall Square, the main shopping area, the Strøget and Rosenborg Castle.

Don't miss Copenhagen's famous Gefion Fountain, depicting the Nordic legend of the goddess Gefion. You'll also spot Amalienborg Palace and the colorful and lively Nyhavn waterfront district. The latter is lined with 500-year-old gabled houses, sidewalk cafés and bars.

Head to Tivoli Gardens -- at the top of everyone's list of places to visit in Copenhagen. Founded in 1843, Tivoli is a beautiful, romantic park with lanterns in the trees that create a magical atmosphere. More than 160 years old, this magical park has inspired many people: Hans Christian Andersen took the idea for his fairy tale, The Nightingale, from Tivoli, and Walt Disney drew inspiration for Disneyland from the garden during several visits in the 1950s.Stroll through Tivoli to see blooming flowers and the all-important amusements, and to enjoy the old-fashioned style of lighting that makes Tivoli a time warp -- neon lights are totally banned here!

You will also see the Little Mermaid sculpture modeled on the fairytale creation of Hans Christian Andersen.
