Photos from a Canal Tour of Copenhagen

In Copenhagen I went on my first ever canal tour with DFDS canal tours, which I listed as one of my top things to do there. The Grand Tour is a guided tour that departs regularly from Nyhavn and you can buy a ticket for 70DKK from the ticket desk on the day.

The boat takes you along Copenhagen’s canals to see some of the city’s highlights including the Opera House, the Little Mermaid Statue, Amalienborg Palace, Amaliehaven, Christianshavn, The Church of Our Saviour, The Black Diamond Library, The National Museum, Gammel Strand, Christiansborg Palace, Holmens Kirke, The National Bank and Nyhavn. So basically, a lot of stuff!

The 60-minute tour was a really enjoyable way to see the city from a different perspective and really, if i’m being honest, a brilliant way to save my legs. As you can see from the photos, I was incredibly fortunate to have gorgeous weather and blue skies, otherwise I imagine it might have been a bit chilly. The great thing about Copenhagen is that it has a great outdoors-y vibe, and it was so nice to see everyone sitting on the water’s edge basking in the sunshine.

TIP: make sure you grab a seat on the boat early so you can sit on the edge and take some fab photos!

These are some photos from the tour:
