Waterfront architecture boat tour

Waterfront architecture by boat

Spend an afternoon on small boats and learn about world-class contemporary architecture presented by a local architect.

Enjoy this unique opportunity to sail the Copenhagen harbour in electrical, self-controlled boats and learn about the transition from a polluted, industrial harbour to highly liveable neighbourhoods, downtown culture and leisure areas, and modern business districts.

With frequent informational stops and time to enjoy the ride, chat and eat a picnic on board with a cold local brew.

This is for everyone!

Architecture and urban development makes a great introduction to one of the worlds architecture and design capitals and relates to all aspects of the Danish and Copenhagen way of life. History, politics, religion, aesthetics, social welfare, sustainability, tax systems…, all the nuts and bolts of the Danish society, both on practical and more cultural levels.
