Discover the contrasts of Copenhagen

Get a good overview of Copenhagen on this 5 hour tour by car. You will be able to see several of the major attractions in Copenhagen.

Furthermore, we will drive to the fishing village Dragør founded in the Middle Ages and located just a short drive from the city center. There is a very intimate and friendly feel to Dragør and you will no doubt enjoy the cozy atmosphere there. With its small colorful thatched houses, Dragør is the epitome of what the Danes understand as a 'hyggelig' town.

As a total contrast, we will also visit Ørestad, a new dynamic part of Copenhagen. Here you will find iconic buildings like the 8tallet, Royal Arena, The Mountain, Bella Sky Hotel and Tietgen Campus. In recent years, Ørestad has become a favorite place to live for families and this is especially due to the fact that the area is the greenest in the city. The protected Nature Park Amager is neighboring Ørestad and serves as a green breathing space for the Copenhageners.


On this 5 hour tour by car we will visit the old fishing village of Dragør known as the pearl of Øresund. We will stroll through the narrow cobbled streets and enjoy the cozy atmosphere. With its yellow houses from the 1700s and 1800s, Dragør is one of the best preserved towns in Denmark.

From there we continue to Ørestad, which is one of Copenhagen's new districts. Ørestad is known as the playground of architects, and you can see examples of modern architecture. At the same time it is easy to become fascinated by the Amager Nature Park located only a couple of miles from the heart of Copenhagen. If time and weather permits, we can enjoy the view from the top of Bella Sky Hotel and see the bridge between Copenhagen and Malmö in Sweden.

We will also have time to drive past some of Copenhagen's major attractions such as The City Hall, Christiansborg Palace, The Old Stock Exchange, Nyhavn, Amalienborg Palace, The Gefion Fountain and The Little Mermaid.

A Recent Review of this tour

We really enjoyed the tour and learned a lot about Copenhagen in a short 5 hours. Thanks so much for allowing us to see and enjoy Copenhagen. Henriette was very knowledgeable and allowed us to enjoy the area and not be rushed but kept us on our schedule.
