Architecture tours in Copenhagen

Copenhagen architecture tours

Copenhagen is world-famous for its architecture and design! Our architecture tours highlight present-day architecture, which fully equals excellent works of the past.

Indeed, the exceptional reputation of Danish architects roots in the ‘classic’ modern era between 1930 and 1970. Not least 1950s Danish furniture design enjoys a worldwide celebration for its aesthetics and craftsmanship.
But present-day buildings and urban spaces leave nothing to be desired in comparison to the past. Anyone can learn why on our architecture tours.

Who is it for?

Our architecture tours are not just for architects and design fans.

Architecture and urban spaces are certainly a notable feature and of interest to many visitors and residents. But they also relate to all kinds of cultural aspects:

  • History,
  • politics,
  • religion,
  • aesthetics,
  • social welfare,
  • sustainability,
  • tax systems…

… basically all the nuts and bolts of the Danish society, in a practical as well as a cultural scope.

Everyone can have an opinion on architecture and relate to one aspect or another of specific buildings. Or indeed to the underlying, ‘systemic’ causes and effects that are at play in our physical surroundings.

That is why architecture makes such a great entry point for a grasp which goes deeper than the peculiar fun facts you hear on a tourist sightseeing.

My husband and I took a private Architecture tour with Asser. It was a wonderful experience. Asser designed the tour based on our requests and provided Strida bikes for the tour.
He is very knowledgeable about the city and the recent modern residential building projects. In addition to his technical expertise on the subject of architecture, he also offered us a glimpse of how Danes conduct their lives.
We learned quite a bit from this tour that we can use on our own project.

Professional tours

However, both architects and design nerds are also more than welcome! Our architect guides are experienced and widely knowledgeable about architecture and architectural history.

We will draw on our experience and insight to customise for the best possible route by bike or other transportation. We are the right persons to ask for advice on how to get the most of a limited time for a group of professionals on a study trip or similar.
