A Complimentary Windstar Private Event
Copenhagen: An Evening with Princes and the Gods
From Beowulf to King Harald Bluetooth to Hamlet, the Danes have captured the world's imagination for centuries – and during this exclusive event Windstar guests will have a private glimpse into 14,000 years of Danish history.
Our evening begins with a canal cruise through inner Copenhagen. Denmark’s charming capital city takes on a completely different appearance when viewed from its labyrinth of canals. Watch the hurried character of daytime city life subside as Copenhagen lights up for the evening.
Our canal cruise ends at The National Museum, closed to the public for Windstar's exclusive use. The museum is housed in a classic 18th century mansion called The Prince's Palace – originally the residence of Crown Prince Frederik V and Crown Princess Louise. We will be welcomed by the sound of lurs – ancient horns that date back to the Bronze Age.
Explore this world-class museum, discovering Ice Age reindeer hunters, Vikings, details of Norse mythology, and beautiful art from Prince Frederik’s private collection. Then enjoy some Danish appetizers and a taste of the local aquavit. When it comes time to depart, the lur blowers will send you on your way.
Please note: This Private Event has been scheduled in a way that will allow you to book and experience another shore excursion on the same day and you will not miss anything.
