We'll also see the Royal Palace, Amalienborg, Nyhavn Canal, Gefion Fountain, the Little Mermaid statue, the Pedestrian Street (main shopping area), and much more!
After the walking portion of the tour, we'll head out to the little fishing village of Dragor, where the guide will share their personal story about their family and the incredible rescue of more than 7,000 Danish Jews during World War II.
It was actually brave fishermen that helped more than 95% of the Jewish population in Denmark to safety in Sweden. Many Jews escaped from Dragor on small boats, including the fishing boat Elisabeth, that you can visit today.
Today, Dragor is a charming village with old half-timbered houses, cozy cafes, and restaurants. Only 10 miles from downtown Copenhagen, your visit to Dragor will not only evoke the past, but also give you an interesting and unique look into contemporary life in small Danish villages.
During our tour of Dragor, we'll take a coffee break in one of the little village’s many lovely cafes.
