With only a few days in Copenhagen we wanted to make sure we would see all of the best sights, and after reading some reviews online decided to book a walking tour with Copenhagen Fairy Tales. We met our guide Evelina at the statue of Hans Christian Andersen by Tivoli Gardens, and as a small group of 7 we headed off on our tour of the city.
Some of our stops included the famous Little Mermaid statue.
This statue has been damaged and defaced many times since the mid-1960s for various reasons, but has been restored each time.
On April 24, 1964, the statue’s head was sawn off and stolen by politically oriented artists. The head was never recovered and a new head was produced and placed on the statue.
A walk through the beautiful parks and so much more
Evelina was a great guide, she knew a lot about the history and the area, answered all of our questions and provided a great experience. At one point we stopped in the shopping area and Evelina suggested we viewed the public toilets. “How strange?” – I thought. They were down some stairs in the middle of the street. Back in Scotland I wouldn’t even think about going into them! But I decided to trust her and was pleasantly surprised at how fancy they were! They were staffed and actually nicer than some hotel or restaurant toilets I’ve been into. Make sure if you visit Copenhagen you take a visit to the public toilets! Never thought I’d say that about somewhere.
Copenhagen Fairy Tales is a sightseeing tour agency based in Copenhagen. They provide guided bike and walking tours throughout the year.
They focus on giving you a local and personal experience through tours in small groups as well as completely private tours.
If you want to really get out and see the most of Copenhagen, a bike tour is a great choice. By bike, you will experience the main attractions of the city as your guide will lead you through the sights and the traffic in style and tell you about the points of interest.
On their walking tours, you will walk through the coolest neighborhoods in town and discover secret gardens, courtyards and hidden churches. The focus is on undiscovered parts of the city, while walking backstreets and crossing bridges.
If you think you can find the Little Mermaid by yourself, but really want to see more of Copenhagen, then a guided tour with Copenhagen Fairy Tales is a good choice.
Our tour lasted a little over 3 hours and we walked about 4 miles. Good thing I had comfy shoes on! If, like us you only have a short time in the city I’d highly recommend doing a tour with Copenhagen Fairy Tales. Whether it’s a walking, cycling or food tour – they will accommodate your needs.
Explore the famous attractions of Copenhagen on this cozy walking tour. Be enchanted by the Danish capital as you admire the Little Mermaid, stroll the lovely Nyhavnwaterfront or view Amalienborg Palace, ChristiansborgPalace, Rosenborg Castle and Torvehallerne food market. As we walk, we’ll stop at the must-sees and gain informative insights into the sights and places that inspire your guide.
Thank you to Copenhagen Fairy Tales and Evelina for providing a wonderful morning in Copenhagen. The weather stayed great for our trip too. 🙂
