Urban life and contemporary architecture bike tour in Copenhagen
Focusing on architecture and recent urban development, this tour is a great introduction to how Copenhagen works and feels for the citizens of the world’s most livable city! Take a look through the eyes of an architect at the transformation from withering industries to hip neighboorhoods, cultural areas and fancy commercial districts. During the tour you can expect stories behind building designs, public spaces and the general unfolding of urban life.
[…] Asser customised the tour to meet our preferences. He was deeply and widely knowledgeable, and yet was gracious about even the most banal and naive questions. […] We hope to be back. Thank you.Feltrin85 ⋆⋆⋆⋆⋆ on TripAdvisor
