Port of Copenhagen back
Canals, lakes and the sea dominate the beautiful Copenhagen as a reminder of the city's heritage as a major Baltic port. Today, Copenhagen has become a large city. Still, it retains a charming small-town atmosphere that is instantly appealing. Enjoy the delicate spires and towers that are typical of the city. And take a break in one of the many parks that make Copenhagen one of Europe's greenest capitals.
The city centre is full of shops and cosy cafés. And it is easy to get around; Copenhagen offers the world's longest net of pedestrian and shopping streets and squares.
Just a few minutes walk away from the cruise ship pier, visitors are greeted by the royal palace, the home of the world's oldest monarchy. Here, visitors can enjoy the change of the Royal Guard every day at noon. And not far from the palace square you will find The Little Mermaid sitting on the waterfront. The beautiful sculpture - inspired by a fairy tale of H.C. Andersen - can also be enjoyed from the seaside if you go for one of the popular harbour boat trips.
