Hello there! I’m Lars, Guru in Copenhagen. I’m a 21-year-old history student, with a passion for history and culture. I love meeting and talking with new people from different cultures. I have lived in and near Copenhagen since I was five, so I know pretty much everything there is to know as a local. I know the popular cafés, restaurants, bars and fun places/activities there are in this city. I consider Copenhagen as one of Europe’s last hidden gems. It isn’t as shiny as Paris, London, or nearby Berlin, but yet it has such a special vibe and interesting history, which truly makes it worth a visit. Hopefully during my tour, you too will discover the beautiful and fascinating sides of Copenhagen. You can contact me on +45 21274629 Bonjour! Je suis Lars, Guru à Copenhague. Je suis un étudiant en histoire de 21 ans, passionné d'histoire et de culture. J'aime rencontrer et parler avec des nouvelles personnes de différentes cultures. Je vis à Copenhague et dans les environs depuis l'âge de cinq ans, donc je sais à peu près tout ce qu'il y a à savoir en tant que local. Je connais les cafés populaires, les restaurants, les bars et les lieux/activités amusants qu'il y a dans cette ville. Je considère Copenhague comme l'un des derniers joyaux cachés d'Europe. Copenhague n’est pas aussi brillant que Paris, Londres ou Berlin à proximité, mais pourtant il y’a une ambiance si spéciale et une histoire intéressante, ce qui en vaut vraiment la peine d’une vistie. J'espère que vous aussi découvrirez les côtés magnifiques et fascinants de Copenhague.

Tour description

On this tour we will look at the mythical founder of Copenhagen, which according to legend also was given the Danish flag by God in a moment of need!
 We will visit the beautiful renaissance buildings, which Denmark’s legendary builder-king Christian th 4. Build and how these were financed through doubtful measures, and how it all came to a crashing end!
 And we will visit the more modern historical sites, such as Christiansborgslot the house of the Danish parliament, and how it was raised after a complete disaster!
We will of course visit Nyhavn, the iconic harbor of the city.
And the great social experiment: The free-city of Christiania, a squatter movement that transformed into an almost independent part of Denmark!
Lastly, we will visit the Little Mermaid and Amalienborg, the queens residence.

So book a tour with me and we'll dive into the deep history and rich culture of this hidden gem!
