In the footsteps of famous Danes

Copenhagen and Denmark is home to a couple of famous people whose bodies have passed, but whose spirits are still very much alive in the Danish capital. Besides kings and queens, famous citizens like Hans Christian Andersen, Søren Kierkegaard, Karen Blixen, Niels Bohr and Arne Jacobsen walked the streets of Copenhagen. Walk in their dusty footsteps and discover their legacies.
