Copenhagen is the modern and charming metropolis that never forgot its history. It's a captivating, friendly city where your senses can roam and where there's always something wonderful around the next corner. A round trip of the inner city is easily managed on foot and its old, cobbled streets provide an evocative backdrop to a thriving cultural scene, with its art galleries, museums, music and theatres. Europe's longest city pedestrian street Strøget, winds its way through the inner city, with its shops full of world-class Danish design, fashions and much more. And the there are the royal castles, the parks, the squares and the plazas. Not to mention our precious pearl, Nyhavn, the New Habor. The actual founding of the city, though, dates to 1167 A.D., when Bishop Absalon built a fortress on Slotsholmen. At the Tycho Brahe Planetarium, you can experience breathtaking natural phenomen. A fairy-tale universe unfolds for you at Tivoli Gardens, where amusements, concert performance and a profusion of flowers await.
Sights to see in Copenhagen: The Little Mermaid, Trivoli Gardens, Amalienborg Palace, Strøget, Round Tower, Kronborg Castle, Carlsburg Brewery, Bakken, Frederiksborg Castle, Rosenborg Castle, Copenhagen Zoo, the Viking Musuem, and much more!

"I had a fantastic time and the trip far exceeded my expectations. As a chaperone, it was a pleasure getting to know the girls and their personalities on and off the field. For the girls, the trip was a great introduction to international travel, adapting to other cultures and customs as well as a terrific soccer experience. I would recommend the experience to anyone interested in advancing the intellectual and athletic education of their child. Thank you Excel International Sports for a job well done."
