Report from the Little Mermaid Tour – one of our Copenhagen Toursadmin | Tuesday, June 21st, 2011 | No Comments »
A fresh report from one of our recent Copenhagen Tours
This specific tour was The Little Mermaid Tour. We started of at Nyhavn one of the most idyllic and picturesque places you’ll find in Copenhagen. Back in the 1960′ies it was a rather seedy place filled with drunk sailor and loose women, but after being restored back to its former beauty in the mid 80′ties a lot of restaurants opened and the place changed into what you see today.
At the end of Nyhavn, which is actually a canal dug out by Swedish prisoners of war, you have the Copenhagen Harbour with the new Royal Theater Play House on one side and the almost as new Opera House. Following the harbour front north towards The Little Mermaid we passed the Royal Palace and “Amaliehaven”. These place can also be see on other of our Copenhagen Tours – for instance The Classic Tour of Copenhagen (only for Groups)
Expect the unexpected on any Copenhagen Tours
Just before we reached the Gefion Fountain we passed the Royal Pavilions where the Queen waits to be taken out to the Royal Yacht anchored right out side in the harbour. There were a lot of people standing around a were big and nice car, turned out to be a Royal Car. We decided to hang around to see who was coming and about 5 min. later the Royal tender or “Chaluppen” as it is also known came into sight from behind the Royal Yacht. In it was the Captain but most importantly HRH Prince Henrik. Our guests on the tour were ecstatic and got some great pictures. If you don’t believe me and want to see for your self, you just have to come on one of our next tours.
