Go beyond the postcards and discover the city's hidden gems with a private guide


If you have already seen the main sights of Copenhagen, are planning to explore them on your own, or are looking to go beyond the postcards and experience some of the city's hidden gems, this is the tour for you.

This intriguing 4-hour walking tour will take you through the historic cobblestone streets of the oldest part of Copenhagen. Start with Copenhageners' favourite morning treat, a freshly-baked cinnamon roll from the oldest bakery in the city, then set off to discover the places most tourists might miss and hear the fascinating stories behind them. We also drop in to Denmark's oldest department store to learn about authentic Danish goodies like chocolates, caramels, and black licorice.

* This tour can be customized for larger groups - please message me for details. Please note that Stories of Copenhagen is offered as a walking tour only.

A Recent Review of this tour

Caroline was great! Tour started on time and had lots of great details and stories to keep it interesting throughout the tour. We took the hidden gems type tour and definitely lived up to its name while also hitting some of the big attractions lightly.
