Within a short but comprehensive tour, we will take you to see some of the best sights of two countries – Denmark and Sweden.

Firstly we will take you for a short city orientation to travel through the oldest parts of this famed city and past historic landmarks. During the tour in Copenhagen you will see such as Old Stock Exchange, Christiansborg Castle, Holmen, and passing by the colourful and lively Nyhavn. After Copenhagen, we will drive through The Øresund Bridge to take you to Sweden. Øresund was inaugurated in 2000, consists of a 4 kilometre-long tunnel and 9 kilometre-long bridge. With the height of 204 meters, it is the highest bridge in Europe.

In Sweden, we will first visit Lund, an old town rich in culture and history. Owing to a double Danish/Swedish nationality in history, your guide will tell you about the dramatic past, its famous cathedral, and for you to have some free time to stroll in this charming town.

After Lund, we will proceed to the third biggest city in Sweden, Malmoe, where you will enjoy an orientation, partly on foot. The old city is surrounded by a system of canals criss-crossed by bridges. You’ll visit Stortorget (Big Square), where you will see the Town Hall, the 16th century home of the Mayor and the Equestrian statue of King Karl X Gustav. Nearby, in Lilla Torget (Small Square) you will find some of the oldest buildings. On the way back to Copenhagen, we will feast your eyes with the beautiful Swedish countryside scenery, forests, and of course numerous charming houses in both countries.
