Green Copenhagen – a city of sustainability 

Are you interested in sustainability? Would you like to know something about the green initiatives that flourish in the city? Then this is the tour for you.

Copenhagen was voted Green Capital of Europe in 2014 and has a stated objective of becoming CO2 neutral by 2025 – and it is also known as the most livable city in Europe. So, come along this tour where we will tell you about sustainability, which can be both green and blue.

Architecture, waterways, and wildlife

We will explore and visit places in and outside the city center where the meaning of green living comes to life. You will see a combination of original architecture, waterways, and wildlife. This neighborhood called Ørestaden is the newest part of Copenhagen, and it offers a great insight into modern urban living. We will travel to the end of Copenhagen by metro - taking in the stunning view of Amager Common, a preserved area where herons, deers, and sheep are a regular sight.

We will introduce you to some of the natural products grown in these fields, such as wild garlic and buckthorn. All over Copenhagen beehives are situated on rooftops to give more than 1.000.000 bees a place to produce honey. You will get to taste the local honey on this tour.

Discover one of the most authentic and charming areas of Copenhagen

On our way back on the metro, we will stop at one of the most charming areas in the city, nicknamed Little Amsterdam, because of its canals and maritime atmosphere. Christianshavn (as it is called), is one of the oldest parts of Copenhagen oozing with authenticity and local charm. We will walk along the canals, crossing bridges and hear stories about how this neighborhood went from being the poorest part of Copenhagen to becoming one of the most affluent areas to live in today.

The tour will end at Nyhavn where you can enjoy a beverage in the sun at one of the many restaurants situated here.
