    Things to consider before booking:

    • We run the tour every day in any weather, make sure that you are prepared for whatever Copenhagen has in store: rain, sun, snow, wind, and cold temperatures.
    • We need 5 guests to run the tour, if we do not meet the minimum, the guide may cancel the tour.
    • Are you a group of 7 or more? Our tours are designed for small groups of friends and families traveling together. For logistics, safety, and for the optimal tour experience for all of our guests, we ask that you book a private tour. (If you make multiple bookings that add up to 6 or more, your group will be turned away from the free tour)

    Tour description:

    Our Christianshavn tour will take you to the alternative side of Copenhagen. Christianshavn is the site of some of the newest and some of the oldest architecture in the city - and, of course, it is home to the freetown Christiania. Unique churches, odd bridges, and a 50-year old social experiment wrapped up in a 90-minute walk that drops you off at the front door of Christiania.

    Note: Only the residents of the Freetown of Christiania are allowed to take groups inside. Although we finish the tour outside the Freetown of Christiania, we will not leave you without giving you the history as well as some recommendations to see when you visit and explore on your own.
