This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding

Dear Steve, We do not have a partnership with the Copenhagen Card. I believe they partnered up with the larger tourist boats. We hope you would like to join our tour anyway! Best regards, The Hey Captain team
