As an Art Director and published history writer, he will provide you with inside about both what to look out for and what makes it extraordinary.

Occasionally, on busy days, we make use of freelance architect guides, who are also professionals from the building and planning industry.

Small group size

We treasure the personal connection and the opportunity to exchange views and experiences along the way. Our maximum group size is 12.

It’s not a fitness session, but all participants should be fairly experienced on a bike and fairly comfortable in traffic. The pace is comfortable and we make plenty of stops.

The tour is suitable from 12 years up, the route mainly follows bike routes and avoids heavy car traffic.

For someone new on a bike or uncomfortable on the bike lanes, we’re happy to offer a custom tour at a slower pace, choosing quieter routes. Please let us know at

Bikes and equipment

Our Danish Winther high-quality bikes offer a classy, traditional biking experience. We have different sizes, and the seats are adjustable.

Optional helmets are included as well as a bottle of tap water that we bring on the tour.

Can I take my kids?

Yes, kids 12 years+! Cycling is a great family activity and much more kid-friendly than bus and boat tours.

BUT (important!): since we don’t know your kids and their skills on a bike, they will ALWAYS join on the responsibility and supervision of their parents. Helmets are included and recommended for all kids.
