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.

Group sizes from 1 to 30. Duration 2 to 5 hours.

Your ‘captain’ is:

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.

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