This two-day tour will take you to both the best sights of Copenhagen, and beyond the city to a historic Renaissance castle by the sea. On day one, we'll stroll the historic cobblestone streets on a 5-hour walking tour of Copenhagen's Inner City. Visit The Little Mermaid, colorful Nyhavn harbor, the Royal Palace of Amalienborg and more, and enjoy a lunch stop at the wonderful Torvehallerne Market.

On day two, we'll head north along the coast to the charming seaside town of Helsingør, where we'll visit Kronborg Castle. This stunning Renaissance castle has a fascinating history, and even inspired Elsinore in William Shakespeare's Hamlet. After touring the castle, we will explore historic streets of Helsingør, taking in Helsingør Cathedral, the pedestrian shopping street, and the town's oldest homes.

* If you would prefer a shorter tour of Copenhagen's highlights, or would like to book private transportation, please contact me for a customized tour.
