The tour has two routes, "red" and "blue", which run in different parts of the city and alternate every other day. Both routes start in the heart of the city, at Heubro Square, which is where the history of Copenhagen began. You can choose either route and, if you wish, schedule your next walk on the second day.
"The Red Route: about the history of the city
You will see Kristiansborg Palace and walk through its courtyard: in the past it was home to monarchs, but today ordinary parliamentarians sit here. The Royal Library, the oldest library in the city, will surprise you with its new building: on a sunny day you can see for yourself that the branch was not called the "Black Diamond" for nothing. We'll go to Town Hall Square and see the Virgin Mary Cathedral. We'll talk about the royal treasures of Rosenborg Castle and the function of the Round Tower. I'll also talk about Danish cuisine and explain how it came to be that the apothecary became one of the city's most famous restaurants.
"The Blue Route: What Lives in the City
We will walk along the longest pedestrian street in the city and talk about brands of Denmark. You will be surprised by the number of familiar names. We discuss the peculiarities of Danish design on the walls of the Museum of Applied Arts. On New Harbor, you'll discover how a royal whim gave rise to one of the city's most popular tourist destinations. Only the statue of the Little Mermaid rivals this title. Another facet of the city will open at the active military fortress Kastellet, where we will talk about Denmark's participation in World War II. And I'll talk about the country's ties with Russia at the Orthodox Church of Alexander Nevsky.
