What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in the super-hip district of Vesterbro. Follow your guide on a walking tour through the off-the-beaten-path areas of Copenhagen that help define its modern culture. At each stop, learn about its history and the role it plays in underground culture. Visit a local homeless shelter to see the revolutionary way the city handles homelessness. Stop by the New Theatre to learn about the arts and culture scene and walk along the museum street of Absalonsgade. Swing by the historic Eliaskirken, which serves as a talking point for the evolution of the Christian religion in Denmark.

Walk away from the tour with a firm grasp on Copenhagen's vibrant counterculture and some ideas about where to explore further.

Definitely worth the money. Our tour guide was Jack, he is lively and full of great stories. Our group was small which was great. I agree with the other reviews lots more of walking and standing. This gives you so much more information about the city’s past and how things have

We had a great tour ! Martin was very informative and it was nice to stop for a beer on the meat packing district. We ended at Christiana and were left to our own free time there. Great time. Lots of walking so I wouldn’t recommend to anyone out of shape or unable to keep up.

This is different so just be aware of that. It is emotional, sometimes sad and depressing but at the same time uplifting, informative and educational. Martin was our guide for this three hour walking tour and he was incredible. I cannot say enough about how amazing he was.
