Christiansborg Palace & Tivoli Gardens

Embark on a journey through Copenhagen's history at Christiansborg Palace, then immerse yourself in the enchanting Tivoli Gardens, complete with traditional Danish cuisine and captivating attractions.

Copenhagen is a city of castles and fairytales and on this tour you will get to experience the some of these highlights. Start this tour by meeting your local guide on the pier and board a coach that sets off on a grand tour of the capital city of Denmark. Drive through the city and enjoy a visit of the Christiansborg Palace, seat of the Danish parliament and house of the Queen’s Royal Reception Rooms. The Great Hall offers magnificent settings for state dinners hosted by the Queen, and in this very hall, take a glimpse of the tapestries telling more than 1000-years of Danish and international history. As you walk through the palace, Kings and Queens from yesteryear are gazing down at you. No visit to Christiansborg is complete without visiting the throne room. On the balcony of this room, overlooking Copenhagen, Queen Margrethe II was proclaimed regent of the Danish realm in 1972.

Next up is a visit to Tivoli - Tivoli Gardens is a famous amusement park and pleasure garden in Copenhagen. The park opened on August 15, 1843 and is one of the oldest amusement parks to survive intact to the present day. From the very start, Tivoli included a variety of attractions: buildings in the exotic style of an imaginary Orient: a theatre, band stands, restaurants and cafés, flower gardens, and mechanical amusement rides such as a merry-go-round and a primitive rollercoaster. Since its opening, the park has had prominent visitors such as the world-famous fairytale author Hans Christian Andersen. The park even has a building named after him called H.C. Andersen castle – today a venue for events and meetings. First stop in Tivoli is a visit to one of the oldest establishments, restaurant Grøften. This restaurant has existed for around 150 years and is an institution in Copenhagen that everyone is familiar with. Enjoy a tasting of traditional Danish food before having some free time to explore the rest of Tivoli with its amazing flower arrangements or enjoy the atmosphere of this magical place. Rejoin with your local guide for a return drive to the Yacht.
