I love sharing knowledge about my home country and about Copenhagen, the city where I was born and where I live. Telling the history about old Denmark and showing the sights, the landscape and my favorite spots is what attracts me about being a tourist guide.
I qualified as a tourist guide from the Tourist Guide Diploma Program at Roskilde University in 1996 and I have been teaching there too since 2000. In 2006, I obtained a Master degree in History from the University of Copenhagen. For a couple of years, I have lived and worked in England.
I have two small companies in the tourism industry and I combine my work there with working as a freelance tourist guide in Copenhagen and with Copenhagen as a starting point. Having been a tourist guide for more than 20 years, I have extensive experience and I have guided for just one person as well as for larger groups and for people having many different nationalities as English is my guide language.
I offer a variety of tours and it is always my aim to give a positive and memorable experience. I emphasize to show and to tell about both the old and the new Copenhagen and living conditions before and now. I do walking tours, bike tours and tours by car in and out of Copenhagen. All tours can be adapted to your specific interests, needs and time.
I hope you will come to see why I love Wonderful Copenhagen!
A Recent Review of this guide
Great walking tour. Henriette selected a route that wouldn't duplicate parts of Copenhagen we had already seen or were going to see. We got a good sense for the locals' way of life in Copenhagen and enjoyed the conversation (we had many questions and Henriette answered all of them!). The beer stops were paced at good intervals so it was a nice mix of walking and stopping/sipping local craft beers. I definitely recommend this tour.
