During this condensed two hour, you’ll see the city as it was meant to be seen: by walking through 6000 years of Copenhagen’s history. You’ll find out why the Danes are some of the happiest people in the world!

For hundreds of years the Danes were an unstoppable force of warriors, explorers and settlers – uniting Scandinavia, discovering America and bringing terror to the shores of Europe. Today Copenhagen’s history of fire and bloody battles lies hidden behind picturesque streets and colorful harbors.

As the days of conquest passed, Danish power was replaced with a rich cultural legacy of writers, artists and philosophers. The fairytale feel of the city where Hans Christian Andersen wrote is the home of incredible stories and unbelievably true histories: Viking adventurers; pirate-hunting Bishop Absalon; daring Danish WWII resistance fighters and more.


This tour covers:

  • Copenhagen Town Hall
  • Tivoli Gardens
  • Danish Royal Palace
  • Picturesque Nyhavn harbour
  • Hans Christian Andersen
  • Absalon - the warrior bishop
  • Nazi occupation
  • WWII resistance
  • Nytorv and Gammeltorv
  • Kongens Nytorv
  • Danish Parliament
  • The Royal Danish Theater


Our recommendation: Highly recommended to join during your first day in the city! The tour is designed to be done by foot but should you want to do it by bike, we can organize it for you!

What do you want to do after the tour? Would you like to get to Christiania with your private tour guide but you don't have the time to add to your booking the three hours Alternative Private Tour? We can organise an extended Private City Tour of about 4.5 hours with a snack break in between, and include a visit to Christiania on the tour!

Beyond the hipsters and gelato stands, there’s an amazing tale to tell about Copenhagen’s underground scene and the people who have made it, and continue to make it, great. This is more than just a story of hipsters and down-and-outs; this is a tale of a totally different world questioning the social, political and cultural status quo. .

Outside of the centre and away from the mainstream attractions you’ll find a very different Copenhagen: across the water to the East lies the self-declared Free State of Christiania, and just south of the central train station the über-hip district of Vesterbro. This 2.5-hour tour is a story of two distinct neighborhoods, one known for its green-light district, the other for its red-light district, each with a fascinating history bound together by their vibrant diversity and uncompromising counter-culture. Despite international fame, both places retain an edgy sense of freedom, creativity, and grittiness you won’t find in the downtown core.

Discover how Copenhagen’s historic working-class district has evolved into a thriving community of young artists and entrepreneurs living and loving the quirky vibe of the red-light district, lined with sex workers and drug addicts. Learn about the successes and challenges of the Danish welfare system that takes care of them. Hear the story of how the hippies took over a military base in the 70s. Walk down the notorious Pusher Street of the green-light district, just around the corner from some of the city’s most expensive real-estate.


This tour covers:
  • Free State of Christiania
  • Über-hip district of Vesterbro
  • Meat-packing district (Kødbyen)
  • The Red-Light district
  • The Green-Light district
  • Mikkeller gypsy brewery
  • Det skarpe Hjørne - Copenhagen’s hard drug nerve
  • Mariakirken
  • Mændenes hjem homeless shelter
  • The New Theatre (Det ny teater)
  • Eliaskirken
  • Absalonsgade museum street
  • The Royal shooting range  

Our recommendation: Highly recommended to those passionate for art, alternative life and most of all eager to see another side of this city, which might be difficult to find if not with your Tour Guide. Please note, during this tour, we will need to take public transportation.
