The following are two of our favourite tourist attractions in Denmark:-
Kongens Nytorv (King's New Square) is located between Amalienborg Palace and Nyhavn in the heart of the city of Copenhagen. The King's New Square is one of the most beautiful squares in Copenhagen. It was designed by King Christian V in the 17th century with an equestrian statue of himself in the center with four statues below representing Queen Artemisia, Alexander the Great, Pallas Athena and Hercules. The square was reconstructed by King Frederik V in the middle of the 18th century.
Many historical and famous buildings surround the square such as Hotel D'Angleterre (1795), Charlottenborg Palace, Royal Theatre (1872), Magasin du Nord department store and Thotts Palace which is now home to the French Embassy. Cobblestone streets with chairs for pedestrians to sit down and relax surround the square.
Canal boat tour is an ideal and wonderful way to see the city of Copenhagen from the water, i.e. from the canal and the harbour. It is a major tourist attraction in Copenhagen!
There are several operators to choose from and the major one is DFDS which departs from Nyhavn near Kongens Nytorv in the heart of the city of Copenhagen. Guided tours cost between DKK 40.00 and 60.00 per adult and half price for a child. Operating hours are between 9.00 a.m. and 8.00 p.m. daily during the summer months. Hop-on hop-off water bus without guide is another excellent choice to see Copenhagen from the water.
The guided boat tour lasts approximately 60 minutes. Attractions where the boat will be passing along the way include architectural buildings of Nyhavn, Little Mermaid, Amalienborg Palace, Holmen, the Stock Exchange building, the Royal Library, Trekroner Fortress and Cristianborg. Don't miss the canal boat tour when you visit Copenhagen on your vacation!
