Embark on a royal tour of Scandinavian castles, a cathedral, and the Viking Ship Museum without planning transport or an itinerary. Leave everything to you your guide, allowing you to travel in comfort across the pretty Danish countryside. Ideal for visitors interested in Danish history, this tour provides a great overview of the country’s past from the Viking era through the Renaissance.
What to Expect
Begin your tour at your hotel in central Copenhagen or the designated departure point across from City Hall. Head out of the city with your small group to visit four grand sites.

See Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that fortified the entrance to the Baltic Sea for six centuries. Learn about the castle’s royal history, and how it is tied to Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet.

Visit Frederiksborg Palace, the largest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia.

Move to Roskilde Cathedral, burial spot for numerous Danish kings and queens. Tours between November and March don’t have access to the cathedral interior; visitors will take narrated walk around the structure's exterior instead.

Head back to Copenhagen, passing Danish countryside, for a visit to the Viking Ship Museum. Learn how the Vikings built their ships and ruled the North Atlantic.

Finish the tour at your original departure point.

wonderful city for a quick stop

Very good trip. The content and pace was just right. Guide/driver Jørgen was fantastic. He gave great historical background of Denmark to the present which was very helpful as well as appropriate commentary at each of the sites. Photo of King Bluetooth.

Well Worth the Day!

We really enjoyed this informative and friendly tour around four key sites - the two castles, Roskilde church and the Viking museum. It’s a long day but so worth learning so much about Danish history while seeing the sites outside of the city. The small...More
