The little mermaid, Copenhagen, Denmark


If you want to see the little Mermaid you’ll have to take a 10 minute walk down the quay. Be warned the mermaid is little!

In Copenhagen Trinovante will be berthed right in the centre of the action on the Amaliehavn quayside.
Almost right outside the Amalienborg Royal Palace, this is also very close to Nyhaven, a lively canal area of old waterfront houses and bars.

The capital of Denmark, wonderful, wonderful, Copenhagen, is an iconic city barely needs an introduction.

It has beautiful waterfronts and canals, historic buildings, parks, and museums galore. As ever if you have plenty of time it is worth adding a couple of days to your holiday to spend some time in Copenhagen.

Sailing South From Copenhagen

Leaving Copenhagen behind the very first thing we see heading down the Øresund sound is ‘The Bridge’,  now made famous by the Scandinavian-noir crime television series. It is very long and spans the sound between Denmark and Sweden

Stubbekøbing, a very picturesque little harbour, is one of the first places Trinovante might visit. The quirky Motorcycle and Radio Museum has the largest collection of veteran motorcycles in Northern Europe.

Sailing West To Kiel

From Stubbekøbing Trinovante might head into the big bay area of Smålands Farvandet surrounded by the Danish islands. Some think is the nicest cruising area in Denmark. There are many good anchorages here for Trinovante.

For generations, the Danish islands connected with each other and the outside world through their trading schooners. On the island of Aero, at Marstal, schooners still congregate. We hope to visit Marstal which is a very attractive Danish island town with small single story cottages, cobbled streets, hollyhocks and a highly rated maritime museum.

These are just a couple of the many places we might visit in the Danish islands before we head to Kiel

Journey’s end is on a quayside in Kiel where all the traditional sailing ships stop before transiting the Kiel Canal. This is always a bustling place and a great spot for a beer in a cafe while you people and ship watch.

All voyage notes refer only to possible itineraries – where we sail, the type of sailing and passage lengths and the places we call into will be entirely dependent on the wind and weather at the time.

What’s included in the price?

  • All meals onboard
    We provide breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. Obviously, if you choose to eat ashore, this is at your own expense. We can cater for most diets, but you must let us know about special diets at the time of booking. We cannot cater for special diets at short notice.
  • Non-alcoholic drinks
    Ships rules are no drinking alcohol at sea or if we are about to sail. This does NOT mean Trinovante is a dry boat – it’s fine to have a drink in the evening when we are at anchor or alongside. We don’t sell alcohol on board so bring your own.
  • Use of life-jackets and wet weather gear
