Our visitors travel from all over the world to have a good time in Copenhagen, and we are well acquainted with the unique challenges of walking as a group in the city. In order to make sure everyone is safe and happy, the guides of Copenhagen Free Walking Tours ask that you abide by a few simple rules on tour. Please be respectful of these rules, and of your tour guide. We promise we’re not killjoys - just experienced in how best to navigate wonderful Copenhagen. If you need special considerations, have specific requests or are a group of 6 or more, you are welcome to book a private tour with us by emailing: copenhagenguides@gmail.com.

New Tour: The Little Mermaid and Harbor Tour

Join our 2.5 hour harbor tour to learn all about Denmark’s history as a naval and merchant power, and see some of our most famous statues and buildings, from the Little Mermaid to Nyhavn.

For hundreds of years Denmark controlled the only naval route into the Baltic sea, which gave it formidable power. Today the old naval and merchant quarters have been turned into parks, grand promenades, and palaces. And in the grand tradition of Copenhagen, the harbor is still expanding to this day, with exciting and controversial projects! Visit an old star fort, the Little Mermaid, the royal gardens and more, and hear about Danish military might, slave rebellions, and the future of Copenhagen’s harbor.
