ICLP canal tour excursion

July 31st, 18:00-19:30


A boat trip prior to the conference dinner has been arranged for ICLP participants. You will board the ICLP sightseeing boat at Nyhavn, a charming part of Copenhagen with its old houses painted in different colours.

At this time of the year, restaurants in Nyhavn have moved outside and there will be great opertunities to enjoy a drink before the boat trip, i.e., if you have the time and are able to locate a free chair (or go the grocery store round the corner and sit on the quay as all the others).

The tour will take you - in the company of your friends of the ICLP society - through the most interesting parts of historical Copenhagen, along canals and old parts of the harbour with many beautiful buildings from different centuries, and you also experience at close hold the present-day lazy and bohemian summer mood in parts such as Christanshavn.

We approach Holmen which is a former and historically interesting military base and shipyard, also interesting from an architectural point of view. We embark at the restaurant where the conference dinner will take place.

How to find Nyhavn

Nyhavn ("new harbour") starts at Kongens Nytorv square at the heastern end of the medieval city core. From FLoC, take bus 42 or 43. From one of the pre-booked hotels, either walk, or take bus 29 (from Danasvej for Cab-Inn) or 6 (from Vesterbrogade for other hotels).
