Grand Day Trip around Copenhagen

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 143.92
2 travellers
See the attractions outside Copenhagen. The only tour that not only includes the royal castles but also visits the former capital, Roskilde. You see a lot more than on the other tours. You also get a more personal experience because we operate in small groups of 16 people or less. Knowledgeable and English speaking guide.
  • Ideal for travelers interested in learning about Danish history 
  • Save time by visiting four sites in one day
  • Guided tours of some of Denmark’s most popular castles and a cathedral
  • Small-group tour limited to 16 people means plenty of personal attention
  • Includes convenient round-trip transportation from your Copenhagen hotel
What to Expect
Begin your tour at your hotel in central Copenhagen or the designated departure point across from City Hall. Head out of the city with your small group to visit four grand sites. See Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that fortified the entrance to the Baltic Sea for six centuries. Learn about the castle’s royal history, and how it is tied to Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet. Visit Frederiksborg Palace, the largest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. Move to Roskilde Cathedral, burial spot for numerous Danish kings and queens. Tours between November and March don’t have access to the cathedral interior; visitors will take narrated walk around the structure's exterior instead. Head back to Copenhagen, passing Danish countryside, for a visit to the Viking Ship Museum. Learn how the Vikings built their ships and ruled the North Atlantic. Finish the tour at your original departure point.

Our hotel was close enough to walk to the dock so we didn’t do hotel pick up. I am sure the hotel will have the coupon brochures in the lobby. Have fun!,

Hi, your hotel should have pamphlets, etc. that may include discounts but I would direct both questions to the tour company. Have a fun time on your tour. We sure did.
