Tour description

Welcome to Copenhagen!

Today, we will take you around hippie town Christiania– Denmark’s small version of Amsterdam. While are not going to go inside this ‘anarchist’ town, you will learn everything there is to know about this unique hippie town for when you venture in. We will give you insider tips on where to go and where not, with a generous serving of our Politically Incorrect humor and the warm welcome our guides are known for.

In this tour, you will learn about:

  • Inderhavnsbroen
  • Noma and street food
  • Holmen and Opera House
  • Christiania’s past and present
  • Grey Hall and Gayhouse 
  • 1600’s Christianshavn
  • Church of Our Saviour

Join other travelers in discovering Copenhagen– we’ll share about the significant historical events of this old harbour area, the urban legend of an overly-passionate architect, World War II, and how Christiania came to exist.

Show up 10 minutes before the start of the tour, we start at 2:30pm sharp. Look for the orange umbrella!

Group bookings of more than 6 guests will pay a 100DKK per person.

A great tour with Troel. Interesting information. Troel is the real deal. He grew up in Copenhagen. We would highly recommend this tour.

Oh my Gosh! That was incredible! I haven't ever met such a charismatic and friendly professional, who literally loves what he is doing and he wants to share this deep knowledge with you. This information you won't find on the internet for sure, even not all locals know this, I bet. I had average expectations, just for a normal tour, but this tour and the half-danish, half-italian guy made my day incredible! Mind-blowing! Highly recommended!!!! P.S. for the general audience - the guides don't have salary. This tour is worth at least 60 Euro, if taken privately (for 5 people). If you are in the Free Tour - please, leave AT LEAST 10 euro per person, don't be stingy!!! I swear, you will never ever find such an incredible tour in your life. I had the best experience, although have visited many tours all around Europe.
