For once, it's the tourists who get it right – locals almost never experience Copenhagen in this way, and they're missing out on a treat, experiencing the old city centre from a different perspective and seeing almost all the downtown attractions from the water. Canal Tours Copenhagen offer four different tours of the city, ranging from 60-75 minutes in duration, both with or without a guide. They leave from Gammel Strand and Nyhavn, with longer ones taking you as far as the Little Mermaid and out into the Oeresund Channel to the tiny fortress island of Trekroner. On Sunday and Thursday evenings during summer months there's even a 90-minute jazz cruise, with live music aboard the boat.Armed with a strong fleet of 16 comfortable boats, six of which are heated and covered, the Canal Tours takes you through a guided journey along the city s harbor and canal. At least one of the multilingual staff members is always onboard, enlightening guests on the picturesque surroundings. Choose from the various tours available. And for something unusual, go for the Dinner Cruise, where you can enjoy a delectable meal as you cruise along the waters. And if you have charted your own itinerary, then just go ahead and rent one of our boats.

Informative boat tours that come in English or Spanish, and best way to see Nyhavn. Guides are friendly and the boat slows down for great photo ops of Church of Our Savior and the Little Mermaid (bonus that the tourists are on the land side of the photo too).

Despite very cold and rainy weather it was a beautiful experience. Passing by boat through the city, listening to the stories of the local guides, enjoying the great views. Highly recommended! You can't visit Copenhagen and don't see the city from the boat.

The tour was available on Copenhagen card. The trip passes by Christianborg Palace, then out past the Opera House and the Little Mermaid, back through Christianshavn before returning back. Commentary was informative, and some allowed for pics at particular sights. Its more that a boat ride and helps provide an overview of where things are on the water. It was... More

We only had an afternoon to explore as picking up with a cruise next morning and after researching bus v walking tour v canal tour we decided to try Stromma, and we weren't disappointed. It costs DK80 per person for approx 1 hour tour. Very comfortable ride and good guide. Watch the many bridges!

Great way to see the city offering fantastic views, lasts for one hour and there are some tight and low bridges, but the captain knows what he is doing well worth a visit

We took the 9:30AM cruise. It was a bit chilly as we were in an open boat so be prepared for the weather. I was surprised by the many bridges some of which were so low you had to duck. You get a great view of just about every landmark and I highly recommend it.

Great tour, covers many places you may not otherwise see, be aware that there is mo cover so if raining you will get wet or if sunny wear a hat. Great tour, not expensive.

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.
