Copenhagen is filled with interesting sights. A lot of them are best enjoyed from the canals of Copenhagen. Read through this article about sights that are best enjoyed from the comfort of a boat.

Trekroner Søfort (literally Three Crowns Sea Fortress)

The sea fort at the entrance of the Copenhagen Harbour

Since the construction of the fort in 1787, it has been used in many occasions as a defensive structure. However, after the first world war, the fort’s military importance fell drastically. The fort was sold to the Copenhagen Harbour services and was never used for military services (except during the german occupation of Denmark, when it was used for barracks). The original location of the artificial island was a few hundred meters from it’s current location.

Today the fort has a summercafé and banquet facilities. The island is only accessible by boat, so guests are often able to enjoy the fort’s beautiful surroundings all by themselves.  

The Little Mermaid Statue

One of Denmarks smallest and most popular tourist attractions

The statue of the Little Mermaid has become one of Denmark’s most visited attractions, even though she is so tiny.

The statue was commissioned in 1909 by Carl Jacobsen, son of the founder of Carlsberg, who had been fascinated by a ballet about the fairytale in Copenhagen’s Royal Theatre and asked the ballerina, Ellen Price, to model for the statue.

It is highly recommendable to enjoy the sight of the tiny yet beautiful statue from the water, because of the massive amount of people going to see the statue from the land side.

Amalienborg Castle

Home to the Danish Royal Family

Get a unique insight of how it is to live like Danish Royalty. The Danish Royal residence is located right at the edge of the Harbor sight. The castle greets it’s guests from the water with a beautiful garden, an amazing castle square and a breathtaking view, through the square to the impressive “Frederik’s Church”.

Nyhavn Harbor

Nyhavn harbor is 17th-century trade port, that has become a central part of tourism and entertainment in Copenhagen. You are able to enjoy the beautiful architecture, cool boats and amazing vibe without the a too-touristy feel to the old trade port.

Royal Wooden Boat

The Royal Wooden Boat once belonged to the Royal Family.

The boat was built for the Danish Royal Family in 1926. At that time it was Christian the 10th that ruled the country. Since then, the boat has undergone a massive renovation (1200+ man hours).

The boat was used for transit from the shore to the Royal Family’s main boat, the ”King ship of the Danish flag”.

The king was a tall man. He was 1.91 meters tall. The means that the boat was built so that no royalties was to bump their head on the ceiling.

You are able to invite up to 21 guests on board, for an unforgettable experience trough the Copenhagen canals. We recommend pick-up in Nyhavn.
