Beer and other stories in Copenhagen. Diversity of the Vesterbro district
Beer is culture and no other place like in Denmark.
Experience the thriving Danish beer culture in one of the most happening districts of Copenhagen, Vesterbro. This is a guided tour which combines with trying great beer – from the traditional "brown bars" in this former working class neighborhood to ultra-hip "phantom breweries" that shows how gentrification has influenced a lot of Vesterbro as well.
We will both walk and discover Vesterbro, but at a slow pace and with ample of time to talk and try good beer on the way.

Colonial Denmark and the Slave Trade
Learn about Denmark's colonial history and its influence on Copenhagen
Copenhagen has many buildings that are rooted in Denmark's colonial history and international trade. That is to say, Northatlantic, Eastern Asian and Caribbean trade.
The Caribbean or West Indian trade focused mainly on slaves obtained in West Africa and employed in slave labour on the Caribbean islands.
Recently more interest has been shown for Denmark's colonial history: Especially for the country's role in the slave trade. That's the reason for two new statues in Copenhagen harbour. One of them is an official gift from a former Danish colony – The Virgin Islands – by the name of ''Freedom''. The other is an art-project named ''I am Queen Mary''.
Hear about the hidden stories held inside these old Copenhagen buildings.
This city walk can be combined in many ways, for example in combination with the permanent colonial exposition at the National Museum.
We'll meet at Christianshavn square and walk down to the former East Asian square at the harbour. From here we'll follow the harbour to Greenland's market square, crossing Inderhavnsbroen (a bridge) to Nyhavn. From there we'll continue to Toldboden where ''I Queen Mary'' stands. We'll walk up to Amalienborg, where the royal family resides, and then back to Nyhavn and Kongens Nytorv, which is central in the story about the abolishment of slavery.
If you would prefer more focus on the racism involved in the slave trade, we can include Kastellet. Once an African chief was held prisoner there for enslavement, sale and murder of other Africans; a surprising account that reveals that the history surrounding the Transatlantic slave trade isn't as black-and-white as we might think.

Parks and Former Fortifications in the Heart of Copenhagen
Langelinie – Eastern Park "Østre Anlæg" – the Botanical Gardens – Rosenborg Castle – the King's Garden – the Armed Forces Historic Housing Complex "Nyboder" – Kastellet – Langelinie
This walk starts and ends at the pier of Langelinie. We walk through some of the parks that used to be part of the ramparts that surrounded and protected the old city of Copenhagen. Today the remnants are very clearly visible on a map, and one is the Botanical Gardens with beautiful greenhouses, lakes and plants at many ground levels. Here, the most vicious fighting between Danes and Swedes took place, during the Assault on Copenhagen of 1659.
On the way back we cross Rosenborg Castle, the barracks of the Royal Guard and the King's Garden, a small but very popular park for recreational activities such as picnics and sunbathing. We walk through "Nyboder", the Armed Forces Historic Housing Complex with its charming yellow townhouses dedicated to people serving the navy or military forces. We finish with a walk around "Kastellet", – which still holds part of the military administration, and is one of the most well preserved examples of 17th-18th century fortifications in Europe. From the top of the ramparts we have a fine view over the busy harbour as well as the city, and we can enjoy the fine old red buildings.
If time allows – and the church is open – we will stop to take a look. Shortly after we are back at the cruise ships pier.

Experience the story of Christian IV's death and see the treasures from his legendary battle against the Swedes, which provided inspiration for one of Denmark's national anthems.
Learn about the royal scandal that resulted in the creation of the current Queen's Crown and discover the sarcastic "gift" that a king gave to his unfaithful wife.

Afterwards, we will stroll through the King's Garden, greeting Hans Christian Andersen's statue along the way, and wander through king Frederik V's distinguished "City of Frederik" to Amalienborg Palace.

Copenhagen and the Wars Against Britain
Join me on an exciting guided tour of Copenhagen. We'll investigate two of the most deadly battles in Denmark's history: the First Battle of Copenhagen, in Danish: Slaget på Reden and the Second Battle of Copenhagen.
We'll start the guided tour at Holmens Kirkegård, the Holmen Cemetery, where we'll see the monument dedicated to the fallen of the Danish Defense Line in the Battle of Copenhagen and afterwards we'll continue to Classens Have, a lovely garden where one of the most important attacks against the enemy took place. Afterwards we'll head towards what is left of the fortifications of Copenhagen, where the final but hopeless stand against the British took place during the Second Battle of Copenhagen before we walk the short distance to Østerport Station.
From Østerport we'll go by S-train to the city centre, where the bombs and rockets fell. We'll end the tour at the Church of Our Lady, the cathedral of Copenhagen. During the bombardment of Copenhagen its burning spire collapsed and fell through the roof. A fitting symbol of the futile Danish attempt to stay neutral while the great powers fought for supremacy in Europe.
