The Tours

Why do the Danes rank high on the World Happiness Report? What is hygge? Why is Copenhagen considered one of the most livable cities in the world? How do we avoid getting run over by bicycles?  Where to eat the best pastries? Why does Denmark have an Australian Queen?

We answer these questions and more on our FREE walking tours.

Each tour has a different route and tells a different story. If you only have time for one tour in Copenhagen, that's ok! Our tours are designed to give you the best overview even if you can only join one of our tours. 

Our tours run regardless of climate conditions, but we need a minimum of 5 participants. Since it rains 170 days on average in Copenhagen, we invite you to wear comfy shoes, warm clothes, layers and rain gear so you can fully enjoy our walk together!


Copenhagen has a rich history as a major city on the edge of the Baltic. It grew from a little fishing town to the capital of Denmark, and survived fire, plague, invasion and just about everything in between. Nowadays Copenhagen is known as a culture capital, a hub of design and experimentation, a place for foodies and a land of fairy tales. Join our Grand tour to hear how Copenhagen became the fantastic city it is today. Learn about the city's founding father, the best place to get Danish smørrebrød, and why the Danes are called the happiest people in the world!
