Start planning your cruise and book your excursions to Copenhagen

Colourful Copenhagen, an MSC Northern Europe Cruises destination, lies on the northern coastline of Denmark, overlooking the sweeping Øresund strait. This buzzing capital city boasts Michelin-star cuisine , a vibrant arts culture, and a wealth of remarkable architecture.

MSC Cruises excursions offer plenty of exciting things to see including:

• The Christiansborg Complex
• The Tivoli Gardens
• City Harbour Cruise

An MSC Cruises excursion to captivating Copenhagen will see you discovering Denmark’s most prestigious building: the Christiansborg Palace. Located on the islet of Slotsholmen, in the heart of the city, this complex is the central hub of Denmark’s government. Having survived two significant fires in 1794 and 1884, Christiansborg Palace features styles from the Baroque, Neoclassical and Neo-Baroque eras. Explore the glittering Royal Reception Rooms with its Great Hall and Queen’s tapestries, before stopping by the chapel, stables, and kitchen.

Experience the thrills of the Tivoli Gardens amusement park on an MSC Cruises excursion — a day designed for the whole family! Cycle to the park or take an electrically assisted Pedelec to immerse yourself in the magic. Be enthralled by a wonderland of rides, children’s play areas, shops, and concert venues. This iconic spot was beloved by both Walt Disney and Hans Christian Andersen and makes a perfect place for a picnic.

Admire Denmark’s splendid capital Copenhagen from the water on an MSC Cruises excursion. From Gammel Strand, take a scenic cruise along the canals where you’ll enjoy blissful views of the neighbourhoods. Sailing further through the city, spot a range of impressive monuments including the ultra-modern Black Diamond (home of the Royal Library), Christiansborg Palace, the futuristic Opera House, and the historical district of Nyhavn.
