From my studies in the capital I know most of the strets and the great and secluded places in Copenhagen, but I now consider myself lucky to live in the pensinsula of Jutland in the western part of Denmark.
Denmark is the oldest kingdom in the world and here in the area we have some of the most significant proofs on that. The oldest town in Denmark, Ribe from 700 AD and Jelling, the first Unesco World Heritage site in Denmark as well as Christiansfeld, a candidate to become World Heritage.
The history of Denmark is important for the way we feel as Danes today. Whereever you are in Denmark, you'll experience stories about the vikings, about our kings over the centuries and you will see beautiful cities, towns and landscapes.
I have conducted guided tours in most part of Denmark. In Copenhagen as well as Dragør, the old fishingvillage only 7 miles away from the city as well as to Roskilde with the cathedral and the fascinating vikingships.
On Funen to Odense, the birthplace of our great fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen and to the castle Egeskov, which is almost a fairytale castle.
In and around Aarhus with it's fantastic artmuseum, Aros as well as the openair museum Den Gamle By and also to the Lake District and the site of the viking fortress Fyrkat.
And my own area with Ribe and Jelling as well as the fantastic ruin castle in Kolding and biking- and walkingtours in the beautiful hilly landscape of Eastern Jutland.
So welcome to Denmark; I am looking forward to arranging a tour for you; look at the suggestions on the site and ask for customizing a tour especially for you!
I'll be looking forward to tell you these and many other stories. . . .
A Recent Review of this guide
We would highly recommend both this tour and Poul for anyone wanting to see Roskilde. Poul is very friendly and a great conversationalist. His knowledge of Danish history is remarkable. The Viking ship museum is a must see and the tour of the cathedral far exceeded our expectations. Lunch was at a lovely restaurant in the garden with a view of the cathedral. A thoroughly enjoyable day with an exceptional tour guide.
