Copenhagen is one of the most fascinating cities in the Baltic region, and on this panoramic introduction to the Danish capital, you will see close to 850 years of recorded history.
From the coach, watch for City Hall. The mile-long Stroeget pedestrian street, brimming with shops, boutiques and cafés, connects City Hall Square with the King's New Square.
Get an outside glimpse of the world-famous Tivoli Gardens, founded back in 1843, offering a wealth of flowers, restaurants and entertainment. the world-famous Tivoli Gardens, founded back in 1843, offering a wealth of flowers, restaurants and entertainment.
Pass the Glyptotek Art Museum and Christiansborg Palace -- home to the Danish Parliament and the Queen's Reception rooms. You will see the old Stock Exchange building in Dutch Renaissance style, with its spire of entwined dragon tails. Drive through the colorful canal area of Nyhavn -- once a grubby sailors' quarter with bars offering entertainment of questionable virtue, but now the most charming part of Copenhagen, with brightly colored houses stretching along the canal.
Drive through the idyllic canal district of Christianshavn and stop on the other side of the harbor opposite Amalienborg Palace. Snap some photos of the four identical Rococo palaces surrounding the broad octagonal square.
Before you return to the ship, say hello to the world-famous statue of the Little Mermaid who watches over Copenhagen Harbor at Langelinie and drive by lovely Rosenborg Castle -- former summer residence of King Christian IV.
