Day 4: Copenhagen
THE ROYAL FAMILY’S HOME
Denmark’s capital city is located on the eastern coast of Zealand and is directly connected to Malmo in Sweden via Øresund Bridge. Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen became Denmark’s capital city in the 15th century and is home to the world’s oldest monarchy with an extremely popular and modern royal family. With over 585,000 inhabitants, it is cosmopolitan and at the same time blessed with a small-town-feel.
By bus, we will drive to Christiansborg Castle, with an exclusive photo stop at the Little Mermaid. Afterwards, the royal reception rooms and the knight’s hall will be visited. On our way back, we will travel along the most important sights, such as the Stock Exchange, the Royal Theater, the Town Hall and Tivoli.
Discover Copenhagen by kayak from the water: After a short transfer you will enjoy a guided kayak tour through the harbor and the canals in the heart of the city with a wonderful view of Christiansborg Castle, the National Museum, the Old Stock Exchange, and other historical sights.
Photo Workshop On Shore: Copenhagen
After an introduction by a photographer into basic camera techniques, as well as exercises in working with depth of field, perspective, image details and macro photography, we will explore Copenhagen on foot, together with the photographer. Numerous photo stops, including at the Little Mermaid, the Victory Column, the Gefion Fountain, St. Alban’s Church, Amalienborg Castle and the Nyhavn, offer a perfect backdrop for the newly acquired photographic skills.
