Wonderful Copenhagen Segway

Copenhagen Segway tour is an amazing thing to do with your friends or family. Jump on a Segway and glide smoothly and silently through the streets of Copenhagen at 22 km/h (13 mph) only 20 cm (8 inches) above the ground.

You can choose, for example, the most popular classic Segway tour. From Fisketorvet, you will cross the Bryggebridge towards Islands Brygge. You ride along the harbour and across a few bridges as you head for the parliament building, Christiansborg. From there, you ride via Nyhavn towards Amalienborg Palace, where you can try to get a glimpse of the Royal Family. From Amalienborg Palace, you head towards The Little Mermaid. On the return you ride along the harbour itself. The ride offers exceptional views of Copenhagen Opera, Skuespillerhuset, and the Royal Library – The Black Diamond.

Historic buildings

Fredriksten Fortress in Halden

Fredriksten Fortress is a famous place because the Swedish king Charles XII was shot dead here while he was trying to take over the city of Halden. As soon as you upload a picture of the landscape of the fjord and islands taken from the ancient walls of the fortress, you’ll be guaranteed to receive a lot of “likes”.

Akershus Fortress

Akershus Fortress is a symbol of the city and the oldest military building in Norway. You will enjoy the wonderful view of the city and the fjord. Be careful – there’s no fence on the walls.

Roskilde Cathedral

Roskilde Cathedral is considered Denmark’s most important medieval building and is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. It dominates the skyline and is equally impressive inside, with many interesting features such as a column that was used to measure the height of royal visitors.

Iron Age village

The Iron-Age village is located 5 km Northwest of the city and you can get there by bus. It was built using the methods gleaned from archaeological finds.

Egeskov Castle

Egeskov Castle is the first attraction that comes to mind when you plan a trip to Odense. It is located a bit outside the town centre, but it’s well worth a visit. Once you’re there, you could spend the whole day exploring the castle, the gardens and the museums. There is something for everyone, young and old.

St. Peter’s Church

St. Peter’s Church (St.Petri) is located just a few steps from the City Hall. The oldest building in Malmo, the interior of which is just marvellous, will wow anyone with its particular highlight — a 100-metre high tower. There are so many concerts taking places that you have a pretty good chance of enjoying its fantastic acoustics.

Nidaros Cathedral

Almost fully restored, Nidaros Cathedral dominates the skyline of Trondheim. You will see the impressive interior where the nave soars upwards with elaborately carved stonework. Nidaros Cathedral was first built in the early 11th century. It was an important place of pilgrimage in the Middle Ages.

Stavanger Cathedral

Stavanger Cathedral is situated right in the middle of the city. While being the oldest cathedral in Norway, it is a beautiful example of the medieval Romanesque/Gothic style. The interior is stunning and leaves you with a serene sense of worship. If you are lucky, you can listen to a live performance. Photos allowed.

 

Stavanger Cathedral is included in our Stavanger Essential Walking tour (link opens in a new window).

 

 

Rundtaarn

Visit Rundtaarn (Round Tower), the oldest astronomical observatory in Copenhagen, with the best views of the old city at the top. It was the highest building in the city during the 17th century and is mentioned in Andersen’s tales.
