- Budget


See Copenhagen at its best from the water.

For really not very much money at all you can see all the key sights of the city on the excellent canal tours. Various itineraries loop through the canal network taking you past the main historic buildings, old warehouses and war-ships. It's a great way to get a feel for the thing that made Copenhagen in the first place: it's strategic maritime location. The tours are wonderfully reminiscent of the city's sea-faring and mercantile past.

Value for money

Price advice

Tours for adults start at 60 krone and 40 krone for children.

Expert tips

Take a hat and sunglasses as there can be quite a bit of glare off the water in bright weather.

If you can't be bothered to walk to the Little Mermaid statue, the right cruise itinerary will take you right past her.
