For once, it's the tourists who get it right – locals almost never experience Copenhagen in this way, and they're missing out on a treat, experiencing the old city centre from a different perspective and seeing almost all the downtown attractions from the water. Canal Tours Copenhagen offer four different tours of the city, ranging from 60-75 minutes in duration, both with or without a guide. They leave from Gammel Strand and Nyhavn, with longer ones taking you as far as the Little Mermaid and out into the Oeresund Channel to the tiny fortress island of Trekroner. On Sunday and Thursday evenings during summer months there's even a 90-minute jazz cruise, with live music aboard the boat.Armed with a strong fleet of 16 comfortable boats, six of which are heated and covered, the Canal Tours takes you through a guided journey along the city s harbor and canal. At least one of the multilingual staff members is always onboard, enlightening guests on the picturesque surroundings. Choose from the various tours available. And for something unusual, go for the Dinner Cruise, where you can enjoy a delectable meal as you cruise along the waters. And if you have charted your own itinerary, then just go ahead and rent one of our boats.

Excellent trip. Included with Copenhagen Card. Free earphones for English commentary. Went all around the city centre including up to Little Mermaid. Seating a bit tight but no real problem. Cold day but most passengers enclosed. Lasts about an hour.

It was a very cold and windy day when we took this tour. Luckily the boat was covered but unluckily the windows were too grimy to take good photographs through. As it was late in the afternoon, the Little Mermaid was totally impossible for me to see because of the sun shining in my eyes. We did find out some... More

This is a must do activity when in Copenhagen and gives you a different view of the city! If you have Copenhagen card, then you may start the tour from Gammel Strand from where the boat starts. The boat reaches Nyhavn in approx 10 minutes from where additional passengers get on board. The boat halts at Nyhavn for around 20... More

We had a 6 1/2 hour daytime airport layover in Copenhagen. A Metro employee helped us buy the tickets from the airport to Kongens Nytorv ($21 roundtrip for 2). From the Metro it is a short walk. The hour long tour was perfect! There was no "live" tour commentary but they supplied headphones for an audio tour in your preferred... More

We have enjoyed boat tours of the Copenhagen canals on 3 separate visits (with different boat companies) - this was our first March visit and we enjoyed the canals seen during a different season and from a fresh perspective. A must do for first time visitors to the city.

An excellent way to see Copenhagen. The tour guide was great, pointing out what was needed, but just not talking for the sake of it. We saw so much, it is a really good way to get your bearings, so when you are on land, you can get your map out and then get walking or a bus to what... More

The canal tour of the city takes just over an hour. Sat outside the boat. Enjoyed the winds and great view of the city. The tour guide was very informative. Really nice way to cover most of the spots in the city.

This is a great way to get a feel for the city and orientate yourself to some of the sites you may want to visit. It covers the inner harbour and the canals with a multi lingual guide.

Taking a Canal Boat Tour is a must during your visit to Copenhagen. Whenever it is sunny, don't miss that tour. Much better than boar tours in Amsterdam, as the waterways in Copenhagen are very wide and thus give a better view. The mixture of old and modern buildings is so appealling and leaves a great impression you cannot obtain... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
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 neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
