Starting from Kongens Nytorv Metro Station, our walking tour embarks on a journey through the heart of Copenhagen, showcasing its vibrant history and culture.

Our first destination is Nyhavn, the iconic 17th-century waterfront, bustling with colorful facades and historical wooden ships, a perfect spot for photographs and to soak in the maritime atmosphere.

We then proceed to Amalienborg Palace, the winter residence of the Danish royal family, where we may witness the changing of the guard ceremony, a tradition that dates back centuries.

Our path leads us next to the Marble Church, known for its impressive dome, one of the most recognizable landmarks in the city.

As we continue, we'll stroll through the historic streets, arriving at the Rosenborg Castle, a renaissance marvel housing the crown jewels.

Concluding our tour, we'll explore the King's Garden, a serene oasis in the city. Throughout our journey, I will share stories and insights, bringing to life the rich tapestry of Copenhagen's history and contemporary culture.
