Details

Kid Friendly: No. This tour is for people interested in Danish culture and history - besides exploring Copenhagen - and involves talking and dialogue, so the average child will probably find it a bit boring...

Friendly: Yes.
Copenhagen is flat, and if you don't mind moving around in a wheel chair, there should be no problem in getting around on this tour.

Maximum travelers: 10

Language(s)

explanation

Danish (fluent), English (fluent), French (conversational), German (advanced), Spanish (fluent)

Get introduced to Danish culture with a culture specialist while you are exploring the landmarks of central Copenhagen


This tour is a novelty, by mixing a city walk with some of the well-known and lesser known highlights of Copenhagen with an introduction to Danish history and not least Danish culture!!

Why Danish Culture? Danish culture is actually quite extreme compared to other countries'! There's currently a lot of hype around the "Happiest nation in the World", Danish "hygge" (cosiness), the Danish wellfare system ("flexicurity"), low crime rates, Scandinavian "Noir", biking, sustainable energy, food, architecture and more. And a little less about the more shadowy sides - loneliness, falling birth rates, skepticism of "Bruxelles" or immigration.

I have been teaching courses in Danish culture and Danish business culture the last ten years, and this tour is a condensed version of such a course, folded out in central Copenhagen, so it's both good for seeing the main sights as a first-time visitor to the city, and coming under the surface for a returning traveller or expat resident.

Itinerary

Danish Culture through some of the high-lights of Copenhagen.

The content will be adjusted to your interests but include:

Low hierarchy
Religous practices
Work-life balance
Gender equality and minority's rights
Political development
History - how Denmark went from a much bigger country to end up as a small country at the outskirts of Europe

And the high-lights we will visit include:
- Vor Frue Kirke (Church of our Lady)
- Christiansborg - the Danish Parliament
- Thorvaldsens Museum
- Gråbrødre Torv
- Copenhagen Town Hall
- Rainbow Square
- The Hans Christian Andersen Statue
- Tivoli

(Christiansborg and Thorvaldsens Museum can be visited with extra time, but otherwise are only from the outside)

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: I can pick you up at your (central) hotel, but to get a head start, we can also meet in front of the Church of Our Lady (Vor Frue Kirke)

End location: The tour ends in front of Tivoli (close to Town Hall square and Central station). The tour can also include entering Tivoli if you like.

Duration: 3 hours
