This tour will combine the main sights of the Danish Capital with the story of the first Jews in Denmark since 1622 to today.

The Jews in Denmark have always had an important roll and influence in the Danish culture and history and during this tour you will experience the Danish Capital with a Jewish perspective.

You pass the Copenhagen Citadel - the 1660 harbour fortification occupied by the Nazis during World War II on your way to Mindelunden” where the people from the Resistance came to Ryvangen the 5th of May 1945, they discovered 202 graves. The bodies were identified, many were Danish resistance people, and people who were killed in shoot-outs with the Germans. That is why the Memorial Grove was established here, where Germans had executed and buried Danish resistance people.

You will continue to the Danish Jewish Museum, a fantastic architectural accomplishment by Daniel Libeskind that is the famous architect behind the Jewish Museum in Berlin and the rebuilding of the World Trade area in New York. The Jewish museum focuses on the everyday life of the Jewish community and houses a great collection of material which can document significant aspects of the Jewish life in Denmark including paintings, drawings, prints and photographs, silverware and textiles, books, scrapbooks and newspapers, letters, films and videos and much more. The Danish Jewish Museum is located very close to Christiansborg Palace, house of the Danish Parliament.

After the visit to the museum the guide will take you for a very interesting walk in the city centre. You will stop by the famous Round Tower with Hebrew inscriptions on the facade and from here a 30 minutes walk will show you the Copenhagen Synagogue, the Church of the Holy Trinity where the Torah Scrolls from the Synagogue were hidden from the Nazis in 1943, pass the statue of world famous Danish Jewish Nobel Prize winner Niels Bohr, the Latin Quarter, the Copenhagen Cathedral and the Copenhagen University.

The tour will continue on the bus passing the major city highlights including the King's New Square and the cozy area of Nyhavn with the anchor to Danish sailors of World War II, before returning to the pier.

Note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 1.15 miles over uneven and cobblestone surfaces with steps at each venue. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended. This tour will not operate during Monday port visits.
