What people are saying about Copenhagen
This tour is a must do while in Denmark. It might feel costly, but it's a live history lesson for a day, so it is worth it. You will see the VIking's Ship Museum, a place that not only holds five ancient Viking ships (thus the name) but it also has a workshop where skilled workers build new Viking ships modeling the old techniques and materials. You will see the Rosklide Cathedral, a gorgeous cathedral which remains the focal point for all major events involving Danish royals (weddings, baptisms, burials....). In addition to touring the Hamlet's Castle, you will also visit the Fredericksborg Palace which must be one of the more beautiful historic monuments in the world. From the beautiful art, to antique furniture, to vast gardens -- it truly has everything to enchant you. My favorite -- the old church. It is simply lovely. I truly recommend this tour.
