There is no better way to see Copenhagen than to hop onto a canal tour, where a bilingual tour guide will tell you about Copenhagen's most beautiful churches, castles, old listed houses and new buildings.
We started our tour at the famous Nyhavn, a beautiful canal surrounded by colorful houses and sail ships. The famous fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen used to lived in house No.67 for a good 17 years. Some of his famous books include, The Little Mermaid, The Flying Truck, The Swineherd, The Ugly Duckling and The Shepherdess and Chimney Sweep.
Amalienborg is currently the winter home of the Danish royal family. The castle was originally built for four noble families, but when the Christiansborg Palace got burned down in 1794, the royal family decided to buy this beautiful palace and moved in.
If there is a winter castle, there will be a summer yacht. Meet Her Danish Majesty's Yacht - Dannebrog (named after the Denmark flag). This ship also function as a hospital ship in times of emergency.
