Canal Tours Copenhagen in Denmark

Canal Tours Copenhagen started since 1904 so when I was planning for our Copenhagen itinerary, I really included this on my list. It is one of my non-negotiables and I feel that my Copenhagen trip is not complete without experiencing it. So after our trip in Roskilde, we went straight to Ved Stranden.

Read: Roskilde Cathedral 
The Viking Ship Museum 

This was supposed to be on our Day 1 itinerary but for some reasons, hindi na natuloy so we had no idea how to get there from Roskilde Station. We just went back to Copenhagen Central Station. According to my research, we can ride Bus 9A and walk to Ved Stranden but since we are not familiar with the bus station and we don’t want to wait for the bus, we just walked from Copenhagen Central Station to Ved Stranden. It was a long walk.

The Grand Canal Tour Copenhagen 

There are different ways to enjoy your Canal Tours Copenhagen but since we have a Copenhagen Card, we chose The Grand Canal Tour under Stromma. It is used to be under DFDS but they sold it to Swedish Company named Stromma in the year 2011.

Book your Canal Tour ticket here.

It is free using our Copenhagen Card; it is open daily and the time varies depending on the season. During our trip, the boat tour is from 9:30 to 17:00 and I think we arrived past 3PM. We just showed our Copenhagen card at the ticket booth and they gave us a stub.

The Grand Canal tour is more or less one-hour guided sigthseeing tours. The tour is available in different language, earphones are also available so you can listen to your preferred language such as Danish, English, French, Italian, German, Spanish and Portuguese. The Canal Tours Copenhagen is a wonderful way to experience Copenhagen because it allows you to see the life along the canals, the old and new architectures and some of the tourist spots from a different perspective.

During the tour, you will see the Christiansborg Palace, Church of Holmen, Holmen, Bank of Denmark, Børsen, Nyhavn, The Copenhagen Opera House, The Little Mermaid, Amalienborg Palace, Amalie Garden, Christianshavn, Church of Our Saviour, The Black Diamond and National Museum of Denmark.

It is surprising how the boat fits under the bridge. I enjoyed this tour because I’ve seen different tourist spots in just one hour. So if you have limited time in Copenhagen, this is the best way to see interesting sights. If you are tired from walking, you can just sit and relax at the boat. One more thing, the company is using CO2-friendly and battery-driven boats so you have peace of mind that you are not polluting the environment during your tour.
