    Tour description:

    Join our newest walk, The Little Mermaid and Harbor Tour and 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 modern architecture like the Copenhagen Opera House.

    For hundreds of years, Denmark controlled the entrance to the Baltic sea, which gave it formidable power. Today, the old naval and merchant quarters have been turned into parks, grand promenades, and palaces.

    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.
