This tour screams Copenhagen! Experience the true essence of this colourful and progressive city with a trip to the trendy alternative neighborhood of Nørrebro. Formerly a working class district, the area has now blossomed into a multi-cultural smorgasbord of funky design shops, diverse restaurants, and achingly cool dive bars. Come with us to check out one of Europe’s most exciting and inclusive parks, check out what you may consider inappropriate playgrounds and cemeteries and pay your respects to the Danish fairy-tale writer, Hans Christian Andersen.
