the avenues & the alley ways with your local private guide

Copenhagen by foot. The best way to see a city as full of historical details as old Copenhagen.

Along the harbour front you will see the citadel, the Rococo palaces that make up the royal residence and the lively and colourful quayside area of Nyhavn. From there we will follow cobble stone streets, city parks and historical squares through the city centre to make sure that you get in-depth knowledge about Copenhagen & Denmark.

Please check my availability via the calendar and if I am free, I would very much like to work with you designing your tour based on this itinerary.


On the way into the city: The statue of The Little Mermaid, the citadel, Gefion Fountain, Amalienborg (royal residence), The Royal Playhouse and Nyhavn.

City centre: The King's New Square, the medieval city, Christiansborg (parliament), the former Stock Exchange and The Royal Library.

Choose between a) an inside visit to a museum or b) shopping

There is time for refreshments, photo stops and your questions.

If you add extra time, we could make an extra inside visit or lengthen the tour in order to see f. i. the City Hall and Tivoli gardens. The 6 hour version of this tour is for those who like to take it slow or take a lot of photographs.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was a great tour and Sofie was very accommodating. She took us to places we would never see without her knowledge of the history, culture, and community of this beautiful city. Sofie focused on our interests and adapted the tour to ensure we were satisfied. We highly recommend Sofie and encourage others to book her services...she is quite remarkable.
