Copenhagen Free Walking Tours invites you to join our 3 different Free Walking Tours through the heart of Copenhagen. We suggest starting with our Grand Tour of Copenhagen, taking in the famous city landmarks like Christiansborg Palace, Nyhavn and Amalienborg Palace while we discuss history, culture, people, food and so much more on an easy 3 hour walk through the city center of Copenhagen. This tour starts everyday at 10 am, 11am and 3pm* from the steps of the Town Hall (Radhuspladsen). Just keep your eyes peeled for the smiliest guides in town, wearing green name badges and holding bright neon green umbrellas. You can't miss us!

Join us in Spanish at 11am or 3pm everyday at the steps of the Town Hall!

We also have two alternative tours - the Christianshavn Tour, and the Classical Tour. Both tours run for 90 minutes and see distinct neighbourhoods in Copenhagen that we do not cover on the Grand Tour.

We also work closely with Pub Crawl Copenhagen! Come and drink with us!

Please check out our website for seasonal start times, and locations. Booking in advance is not required but very much appreciated.

We did the grand tour with Rikke who was very knowledgeable and offered lots of good recommendations. We enjoyed Rikke's tour and lessons on hygge so much that we joined the afternoon tour of Christianshavn.

Two great tours by very enthusiastic guides (roger for the grand tour, Dan O for the christianhavn tour). Would highly recommend both, the grand tour especially for getting to k is the area early on in your trip. Both free, we tipped at the end

There are a few options for these free walks and I chose the 90 mins tour of classic Copenhagen. He show the group places you would not know were there and had a very good sense of humour. Book on-line it started at 11:00 am - a must to set-up your visit to the City.

Myself and my brother went on the christianhavn walking tour and it was really great. So informative and fun. Wished we had also gone on the copenhagen full tour but we were leaving the next day. Would highly recommend this crew for tours.

Not the first free walking tour i have done but something I always look for in a major city. This was one of the best, 3 hours of fabulous information and tips about the city. Roger was superb with his knowledge and delivery and kept everybody entertained. The tips on bars and restaurants was also invaluable.

Overall, this a great tour to do on your first day. It points out many different places of interest and can help you shape which museums or tourist attractions you might want to go to. We loved our main walking tour with Jared so much that we did the afternoon Christianshavn tour with Dan (I hope those names are right).... More

Took the Grand Tour of Copenhagen and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our talkative and funny guide Jared (OMG how fast this guys talks) enlightened not only about the history and sights in the city but also about the Danish culture, language and customs. Highly recomended!!!

A must for any first time visitor. We reserved and join the tour on our first morning. Certainly popular but they had multiple guides. We had Jarrod and he was awesome. I am sure the other guides are great, but for my wife and I, we really enjoyed his enthusiasm and sarcasm. He was informative and knowledgeable. We first did... More

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
