Day 1

Sunday

Copenhagen – Jönköping (330 km)

Pink Line Sunday

The tour starts with a sightseeing tour of Copenhagen, the capital of the Kingdom of Denmark. Reminiscent of childhood memory fairy tales, Hans Christian Andersen’s "The Little Mermaid" is the inspiration for the famous statue which was transported to the 2010 Shanghai World Expo and is a true symbol to the Danish people. Amalienborg, our next stop is considered one of the greatest works of the Danish Rococo. Constructed in the 1700’s, the architecture consists of four identical palaces connected by a square. If you are lucky you will see the ceremonial changing of the guards, an event that happens every afternoon. The Hans Christian Andersen boulevard leads to a statue of this notable Writer on the City Square. The Danish fairy tale writer known for pieces as “The Ugly Duckling“ and “The Little Mermaid” had a known motto: “To travel is to live”. He spent 43 years traveling between home and abroad, gathering a lot of his inspiration for his fairy tales and stories from his time overseas. After lunch we continue driving towards Stockholm.
