For hundreds of years the Danes were an unstoppable force of warriors, explorers and settlers – uniting Scandinavia, discovering America and bringing terror to the shores of Europe. Today Copenhagen’s history of fire and bloody battles lies hidden behind picturesque streets and colorful harbors.As the days of conquest passed, Danish power was replaced with a rich cultural legacy of writers, artists and philosophers. The fairytale feel of the city where Hans Christian Andersen wrote is the home of incredible stories and unbelievably true histories: Viking adventurers; pirate-hunting Bishop Absalon; daring Danish WWII resistance fighters and more.Our local expert guides will take you on a 3 hour walking tour through 6000 years of Copenhagen’s history and you’ll find out why the Danes are some of the happiest people in the world!

We had a great time and really enjoyed the tour with Esben. He gave us some great insight into Copenhagen as a modern day city as well as its history. So nice to have a Danish guide as well. Highly recommend this especially on a first time visit. We also saw things we would have never seen ourselves.

The tour takes you around the city and its main tourist hotspots. Martin (the guide) was very well informed.

Guide was great fun and engaging but so much of the content was poorly researched and inaccurate that we left the tour early.

If you are in Copenhagen for a weekend, we highly recommend the free and alternative tour ! Just look for red umbrellas near the City Hall :) It is a must do if you want to discover Copenhagen hidden gems! The guides are really professional and funny! Heads up for both guides Martin and Tordur! Great job guys!

I first went for the classic free walking tour, a good 3 hours that passed very quickly thanks to Martin's balance of knowledge and humor. After this great experience I also took the Alternative tour, with another local guide, that resulted in a good, but unexceptional tour. It was a bit disappointing when by the end of the tour I...

I went on a tour on a sunny winter day and even though it was cold we had a great time! Our guide Martin was full of information and interesting facts and would highly recommend him and the tour. It is approximately 3 hours long with a coffee break to warm up a little bit and you see and find... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
