Experience Copenhagen by foot

Copenhagen is small enough for you to experience it by foot. But if you do not know where the good sights are and the stories they tell, then what good does it do? Luckily for you there are lots of great guided tours around the city with very different themes and objectives. The traditional walking tours will take you to the most significant sights and important places in Copenhagen city centre and show you the best of the cty in a few hours. But you will also find food tours, design tours etc.

Tourist guides belonging to The Association of Authorised Tourist Guides wear the official badge or ID card depicting the three towers featured in the coat of arms of the city of Copenhagen. Authorised guides have attained a university course in guiding from Roskilde University in Denmark. The degree course is a one-year, full-time adult education diploma course, which includes Danish history, cross-cultural understanding, guiding techniques, tour planning skills and story telling. The emblem ensures you correct information and the best possible experience on a tour of the city. The members speak 27 different languages between them. Many run their own tour companies, some of them on this list, but you can also book a tour through The Association of Authorised Tourist Guides' website.
