Copenhagen is called one of the most liveable cities in the world for a reason. Surely, the Danish concept of "hygge" contributes to this high quality of life.
But the city itself also has a lot to offer: Not only can you explore a medieval old-town with narrow streets and tiny houses, royal palaces and modern architecture, but also numerous canals, in which the locals take a dip in summer (and for some, also in winter!), a broad variety of culinary experiences and diverse quarters. Each quarter of the city has its on charme and flair. On your Peryscope walking tour - or scavenger hunt - you can explore some of them!
The city centre of Copenhagen is full of sights: Along the route of our walking tour you will experience the most exciting of them:
Christiansborg palace, the seat of the Danish parliament, the Nyhavn canal, a truly iconic spot in the city, of which everyone takes a picture, Amalienborg palace as the home of the royal family and of course the little mermaid, probably the most famous public piece of artwork in Copenhagen.
But don't worry, there is way more to explore! Even if you know the most obvious sights of the city already - we made sure that you will spot something new on your scavenger hunt walking tour through Copenhagen!
