What you'll do

Experience Copenhagen in a different way: On a historical city walk where you get stories about princesses and prostitutes, wives and artists and all the other women who have also left their stamp on a part of Copenhagen. Your hear about both known and the unknown Danish women, about both the gentle and the contentious ones. NOTE! All city walks that you see in my calendar for July 2020 will only be guided in Danish! Please contact me if you need a tour in English. TO BE WOMAN BEFORE THE RIGHTS TO VOTE AND THE FREE ABORTION Shudder when you hear the stories from the Royal Birth and Care Foundation where women could give birth anonymously and for free - and be guinea pig for lots of medical students with dirty fingers. Meanwhile, the registered prostitutes turned up across the street and were treated for STDs. Hear about the last official royal mistress in Denmark. And meet two forceful personalities, the princesses and sisters Dagmar and Alexandra. And Laura Tietgen who had no children, but whose husband made sure they both left a very visible memory: The Marble Church. You also hear about ward women, artists and other interesting women - and I promise you that you will look at Frederiksstaden, the distinguished neighborhood around Amalienborg Palace, with brand new eyes after the tour. NOTE! All my city walks in July 2020 will only be guided in Danish.

Bente

Hi, my name is Bente. I am a qualified tourist guide, educated at Roskilde University. Communication has filled my entire working life - and good stories are the meaning of life to me, especially the ones with a twist. That is the reason why I am a tourist guide. When you go on a city walk in Copenhagen with me I guarantee that you become a little wiser and will have a good laugh along the way. I guide in both Danish and English. Please contact me if you have questions or are looking for different tours, write to info@slowtourscopenhagen.dk.

Where you'll be

We meet at the Gefion Fountain. From here we will on foot explore the distinguished old Copenhagen district of Frederiksstaden. And I will tell you some stories that are completely different from the stories that guides usually tell you here in the neighborhood around the Queen's castle, Amalienborg Palace.

More tips

We walk 2.5 km (1.6 mile) so the city walk is not suitable for walking-impaired.
