Copenhagen's relatively small size and concentration of noteworthy sights in the central Indre By district make it easy to explore on foot. Available walking tours range from food-focused experiences with tastings to music-centric options with stops at jazz venues to traditional walks that delve into the city's history.
Standard walking tours (which provide historical background about attractions like Tivoli Gardens and Christiansborg Palace) are generally free to join and last two-and-a-half to three hours. Tour start times vary by operator. For friendly, knowledgeable guides, travelers suggest signing up for a complimentary walking tour with SANDEMANs NEW Europe - Copenhagen or Copenhagen Free Walking Tours.
Visitors also highly recommend Foods of Copenhagen's culinary walking tour, citing its "amazing" samples and informative guides as highlights. Items you may try during this four-hour tour include Danish cheeses, flødebolle (chocolate-covered meringue and wafer morsels) and aquavit (a spice-forward spirit made in Scandinavian countries). The tour starts in Indre By – though you'll mostly stay in the Nørrebro neighborhood – and costs 120 euros (about $147.50) per person.
Most walking tours start outside a recognizable landmark, such as the Church of Our Lady and Amalienborg Palace. Some companies do not offer tours on select days, so plan your itinerary accordingly. For more tour suggestions, check out Wonderful Copenhagen's walking tours page.
