Grand Day Trip around Copenhagen

  • Booking
  • Tour description
  • Important Information

This is the only tour in the Copenhagen area that not only includes the famous royal castles but also visits the former capital, Roskilde.

You can go to the four sites on your own on day trips from Copenhagen. But this tour is the only way to see it all in one day.

You will be driven around in a nice mini van and guided by a local, knowledgeable and English speaking tour guide.

The group size will be 16 people or less making it personal and efficient.


The tour includes a full visit to these four sites:

Kronborg Castle

The impressive and world famous fortification that has guarded the entrance to the Baltic Sea for six centuries and is the setting for Shakespeare’s play ‘Hamlet’. Enjoy the spectacular views across the water to Sweden. Read more

Frederiksborg Palace

The largest and most extravagant Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. You will be overwhelmed by both the magnificent location on a lake and all the gold and beautifully decorated rooms and paintings. Read more

Roskilde Cathedral

No other building in the world has as many kings and queens buried in it. This UNESCO World Heritage site is both beautiful and the most important church in Scandinavia.

PLEASE NOTE: In the months November through March as well as most days in April we will not be able to enter the Cathedral due to winter opening hours and church activities. We will make a short photostop at the Cathedral.
