We’ll begin today with a lecture in the hotel given by a local expert, during which we'll learn about Danish culture and language. Following this, we'll walk to nearby Nyhavn — “new harbor” – a 17th-century waterfront area. Then we’ll set out on a relaxing canal boat ride, discovering the beautiful city of Copenhagen from its waterways with expert commentary from our Group Leader.
At a Danish street food market, we’ll have vouchers to select food and drinks from a variety of food stalls, which we’ll enjoy together at the seating area in the center of the market.
Following lunch, we will take the local boat known as the Harbour Bus to Toldboden, then walk past Amalienborg Palace and through the King’s Garden to Rosenborg Castle. Set in the heart of Copenhagen, the castle contains over 400 years of beautiful history, artistic treasures and delightful gardens. On site, Grandparents will receive an expert-led look at the interior, whilst grandchildren will explore the castle grounds with our Group Leader. Our Group Leader will lead us on the short walk back to the hotel after our field trip. Those of us who wish to remain in the area close to the castle and return independently are welcome to do so.
This meal has been excluded from the program cost and is on your own to enjoy what you like. The Group Leader will be happy to offer suggestions.
