Christian Holm Donatsky has been leading enjoyable history-focused walking tours for 15 years. We took his June/July “Kings’ Copenhagen” tour covering the period from 1600-1800 – wars, fires, scandals, and all kinds of interesting stuff.

  • April — May, “Reformed Copenhagen,” (1400 – 1600)
  • June — July, “King’s Copenhagen,” (1600 – 1800)
  • August — September, “Hans Christian Andersen’s Copenhagen” (1800 – present)
  • 100 Kr. ($15.50)
  • Saturdays only, 10:00 am for English tours; noon for Danish tours.
  • No reservations needed – just show up
  • Departs from the Bishop Absalon equestrian statue (lower left hand corner of the photo) on Højbro Plads between the Strøget (main pedestrian street/mall) and Christiansborg Palace

The photos on the right of the collage are us having lunch at Hviids Vinstue, Copenhagen’s oldest wine cellar, c. 1793. More on that in another post.
