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

Jens provided a very informative and interesting tour responding to all our questions easily and comprehensively. We enjoyed the areas he took us to and those he told us about as well. He provided a useful information sheet that would benefit anyone staying a few days in Copenhagen.
