Tour I+II:

The complete WCA-programme tour

This tour is a combination of our WCA tour I and WCA tour II. This whole-day tour will give you a deep insight into the past two decades of city development in Copenhagen, and the nuanced stories behind the creation of one of the world’s most ‘liveable’ cities.

For a more detailed description of each of these tours, please check out WCA tour I and WCA tour II.

The whole-day combo tour includes a break for lunch (at your own expense).

Join our World Capital of Architecture 2023 tour and the discussion about the implementation of UN goals ‘the Copenhagen way’.

“Phenomenal experience – probably my favorite in CPH / of all time! We got a high level of insight from the supremely clever and knowledgeable Alice and loved the tour. Highly recommend over a walking tour. “

Who is this tour aimed for?

This tour is aimed at both visitors with a general interest in architecture and the UN sustainability goals as well as professionals within the building industries.

We take pride in addressing a broad variety of visitors in a straightforward language without pretentious archi-lingo. At the same time, we are not holding back on professional discussions and knowledge exchanges.

We also never shy away from taking a personal and sometimes critical standpoint by addressing and discussing also the mistakes and unintended consequences.

Small group size

We treasure the personal connection and the opportunity to exchange views and experiences along the way. Our maximum group size is 10.

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’ll be happy to offer a custom tour at a slower pace, choosing quieter routes. Please let us know at info@becopenhagen.dk.

Your guides on the tour are:

Alice Lempel Søndergaard

Alice has worked in various positions in urban planning and strategy and is commenting on and reviewing new architecture.

She has a degree in philosophy and modern culture and she has a profound interest in how our built environment and city planning are influencing everyday life in the city.

Asser Munch

Asser has a background as a building designer on smaller, very diverse projects and as a teacher at the School of Architecture in Aarhus.

Asser is an architect by trade, and since 2020 he is studying construction engineering at the DTU (Technical University of Denmark).

You can read more on his blog: copenhagenarchitecture.dk.

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

Bikes and equipment

On this tour, we use our Danish Winther high-quality bikes, 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.
