Customer Reviews for Dragoer Fishing Village

Dragoer Fishing Village

This scenic tour will take you to Dragoer, one of Denmark’s oldest and quaintest fishing villages. This exceptionally well-preserved town owes its lovely ambiance to the fact that conservation work was started very early here—in 1934. In 1978, Dragoer became Denmark’s first pedestrian-only town. Follow your guide on a leisurely stroll through the narrow cobblestone streets of historic Dragoer village to the quiet harbor, where the clear waters of the Baltic Sea invite you dip a toe in. After a guided tour, take advantage of some free time to explore the village on your own, or perhaps to visit some of the small handicraft shops that line the main street. Take in the fantastic view of the Oresund Bridge connecting Denmark and Sweden—a stunning juxtaposition of old and new. A snack of coffee or tea and a Danish pastry will be served at the waterfront hotel before you return to Copenhagen and the ship.Notes: Participants must be able to walk for about an hour on uneven surfaces and cobblestones.

A very pleasant place to stroll through, and an outstanding guide who provided much interesting information. The only drawback was that the promised shopping for locally produced items did not exist.

This is rather a quaint little village. I walked the street with shops but failed to find the handicraft shops.

Dragoor is a small, well-preserved fishing village several miles outside Copenhagen. Thus, the bus ride to get there gave us an opportunity to see the countryside and learn more about Denmark's history and its people. Our guide was very good and humorous, and we had a better sense of the people of Denmark, and how much of their culture revolves around water and boating. We saw the Oresund Bridge in the distance, and learned why it is so significant in connecting Sweden and Denmark. Arriving in Dragoor (pronounced something like "Dra-hoor"), we walked along the waterfront to reach the edge of the village. Our guide gave us some history of the town and then we wandered through very quaint thatch-roofed cottages and shops, along narrow lanes free of traffic. Our walk continued down the main street, past shops, and to a local hotel, where we were ushered in to a very crowded seating area to have a bite of a pastry and some tea or coffee. While we enjoyed meeting a couple from Spain at our table, the pastry was underwhelming. Then we had about 30-45 minutes on our own. The shops were not ones that appealed to us, so we simply wandered around the marina looking at the boats and a UN boat exhibit against world slavery. One note - Denmark is not part of the EU, so it has its own currency. We exchanged some at the ship, and ended up not spending any of it, partly due to lack of time, and partly due to lack of anything that looked very interesting to purchase. I ended up donating it to the UN exhibit.
