The Original Christianshavn Tour
Our Secret Traveller applauds this tour as "the ultimate way to experience Copenhagen’s special atmosphere". "Starting in the historic area around the parliament’s canals, we soon ventured to the wonderful freetown of Christiania to learn how the area was created and get fascinating insight to the unique culture here. This story is a truly intriguing and interesting one, and it is delivered exceptionally well by the local guide. It's the perfect way to experience Christiania, appreciate the origins of the movement, get cool pics as well as hearing about local history, architecture and seeing where one of the most memorable events in Danish history took place".
