Best Architecture Tours in Copenhagen as a date night idea
8 Sep 2020
When many of us picture Denmark, we’ll automatically think of the large peninsula jutting into the North Sea, north of Germany. But its capital, Copenhagen, is located on the island of Zealand, well to the east of the Danish mainland, separated from neighboring Sweden by the Øresund Bridge.
As well as that 7.8-kilometer long bridge, an awesome example of modern architecture, the city boasts an incredible range of wonderful buildings. If you are a senior and interested in older dating and finally met someone special on a matchmaking platform and looking for date night ideas, organizing a tour of Copenhagen’s architectural delights would be ideal.
Best Architecture Tours in Copenhagen – Grand Day Trip
If you want to cram in as many interesting sights in as short a space of time as possible, book a seat on the Grand Day Trip. This will take you around some of Copenhagen’s most iconic historical attractions, covering four main sites: Kronburgh Castle, Roskilde Cathedral, Frederiksborg Castle, and the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde. What makes this tour so ideal for your date night is that it takes place in a cozy minivan, seating 16 people or less.
The knowledgeable guide will tell you all about the local landmarks in a conversational tone, whether he’s describing the towering Frederiksborg Castle, with its baroque gardens, situated by a lake and containing Denmark’ largest collection of portrait paintings, or the Viking Ship Museum, displaying five original ships once used by the fearsome Norse pirates.
Available in one or two-hour slots, what better way to zoom around the many scenic spots of this Scandinavian city than climbing aboard a two-wheeler segway, in the company of an expert guide? There are never more than 10 tourists per tour, and beginners will quickly master their mechanical steeds. The route will take you to nine locations around the Nyhavn River that dissects the city center.
Make sure you pack a camera or have plenty available image storage in your phone because the sights include the world-famous Little Mermaid statue, the Gefionspringvandet – a spectacular fountain – and Christiansborg Palace, site of the Danish parliament. At the latter stop, you’ll hear all about Denmark’s rich history, and discover the reasons why Danes are consistently voted amongst the world’s happiest people. This thoroughly entertaining tour will put a smile on your face, too!
Another popular and romantic way to get around the capital, absorbing its architectural highlights, it to travel around by bicycle. This is a very bike-friendly city, so you and your partner can take a leisurely cycle around, with a friendly tour guide on hand to tell you all about Copenhagen and the chilled Danish way of life, together with many memorable anecdotes. This may be a more energetic way of soaking up the local culture than a minibus tour, but it will put you in the mood for enjoying some refreshments afterward in one of the city’s many cafes and restaurants.
Panorama Sightseeing By Land and Canal Cruise
One of the most romantic jaunts of all is the Panoramic Tour that will take you on a leisurely voyage around the city’s waterways, offering unparalleled views of Copenhagen. Relax next to your partner, listen to your guide describing the various landmarks hoving into view, then watch the world gliding by.
The tour commences at the royal kitchens of Amalienborg Palace, where the guide will allow half an hour to stroll around the kitchens, taking in the changing of the Royal Guards. You’ll end up at the Copenhagen Ocean Quay Cruise Terminal where you can check out the souvenir shops, perhaps purchasing one or two mementos of your romantic excursion around Køge Bay.
