Authorised Tourist Guides Association
I am an authorised tourist guide, educated at the University of Roskilde (RUC) and qualified to guide in Copenhagen and Denmark. I have detailed knowledge of what to do and see here and how to make the most of your trip in Denmark. Let me show you Rosenborg Castle, the former summer residence of the kings of Denmark, built by famous Renaissance king, Christian IV. Another highlight in Copenhagen is Amalienborg Palace Square, where you can see the residences of Queen Margaret II and her son, Crown Prince Frederik, and his wife, Crown Princess Mary, at close quarters. The Palace Square is guarded by the Royal Life Guards and at 12 noon every day, you can watch the changing of the guards. Other must-see sights are the Little Mermaid, Tivoli, Christiansborg Palace, the Round Tower, the Botanical Gardens and Copenhagen Cathedral, not forgetting some wonderful museums - the National Gallery, the New Carlsberg Glyptotek, the National Museum, Thorvaldsen's Museum, Hirschsprung Samling and the Jewish Museum. For children - Tivoli, the Tycho Brahe Planetarium and the Experimentarium are great places to visit. Or just relax in the King's Garden or enjoy a Danish meal at Nyhavn with its colourful rows of restaurants.
