A walking tour through the life, works and passions of Denmarks greatest philosopher

Søren Kierkegaard is known around the world for his philosophy. And rightly so.

But did you know when or where he lived? Who he loved, who he hung out with? Fought with? Why he at one point wrote about his birthplace with love oozing from every penstroke and later bittely exclaimed "This city is ruined for me!"?

This tour takes you through the streets that Denmarks greatest mind tirelessly walked througout his life.

The story is fascinating, just like the man himself.

If you prefer to do this tour as a shore excursion by car, rickshaw or whatever, let me know.

The City Court
The pedistrian street "Strøget"
