Add To Plan

As the capital city of Denmark, Copenhagen is a thriving center of government, commercial and banking activities, which are to be found in large cities all over the world. Unlike many large cities however, Copenhagen's expansion has been limited by a number of laws and by-laws designed to protect and preserve the environment. As a result, a short drive from the center of the city will take you into areas of unspoiled countryside - a fact that is very much appreciated by the Danes.

The tour commences with a drive through one of Copenhagen's modern suburbs, northwest of the city, where you see an example of how a modern development, which is in direct contrast to the original village, can also be integrated within the same environment, without striking discord. Here, you will see charming, old-world thatched cottages in a secluded area around which a modern, 20th century suburban community has grown.

From here, continue on to "Frilandsmuseet" - an open-air museum of Danish farms, windmills and cottages, all of which have been dismantled and transported to their present site for re-assembly, forming a rural environment of bygone ages.

Next, you'll make your way to Frederiksdal which is an area of great natural beauty, where you board a small boat for a cruise along the "Mill Stream" to Lyngby - passing along the way a number of the many mills (or their remains) which have given the stream its name, some of which can trace their history back to the 15th century.

Upon arrival in Lyngby, you'll leave your small boat behind and board a coach for the return transfer to the cruise ship pier in Cophenhagen.

Please note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 2.25 miles over various uneven surfaces, inclines and a few steps. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. Time permitting; you will have approximately 15 minutes for browsing and shopping at the Open Air Museum. This tour will not operate on Mondays as the Frilandsmuseet is closed.
