There are several tours organised for different periods of the Copenhagen history. I had the chace to do two of them and I found them very interesting and amusing. It is very interesting to learn how history has shaped the city and it has change its streets and habits thu the years. I highly recommend them.

Christian gave us a great tour and explained the history of Copenhagrn from 1000 to 1600. He is definitely up to date when it comes to the most recent archeological findings and he was more than happy to answer various question on the history of Copenhagen and Scandinavia! The topics of the tours change during the year and we will definitely come back for another time. If you are interested in solid historical facts told by an expert with a tiny nuance of great Danish humor, this walk is totally worth the money and time!

I would highly recommend doing this walking tour with Christian. The pace is just right, balancing historical information with a fine walk around the city. Christian was a great guide and our only regret is that we didn't do the tour right when we arrived so that we would have a lot more knowledge about some of the landmarks and locations throughout the city. Definitely worth your time!

The walk went well beyond pointing out tourist attractions. Christian told colorful stories of Copenhagen's past - activities in the narrow, winding streets, upheaval with the Reformation, trade and worker guilds. Our walk centered on the early days, reaching into the 1600's. In other months, the focus shifts to more recent times. Knowledgeable about current events, Christian is a member of his town council. Even though my wife and I were the only ones there, he proceeded with the walk without hesitation. Being on the ground with a local who loves what he's doing - it's hard to beat.
