Visit secret sights that most tourists don´t know about, meet fun people - and experience the Danish concept of "hygge" for yourself. The experience starts at the entrance to the old part of the meat packing district. We will go for a city walk (about 1,5 hours) and visit some intersting sights and fun places that make the people of Copenhagen very happy, but that most tourists never visit. On the way I will share the amazing story of how the meat packing district known as "Meat City" was transformed from an area of slaughterhouses into a cool and vibrant area of bars, clubs, restaurants, creative office spaces and startups. We’ll also visit: the former royal shooting range, (now a park hidden behind residential buildings), a beautiful street which was originally constructed as a street of brothels, and a some more cool places in the Vesterbro area. The tour ends in a old church which was turned into playful community house by a Danish billionaire a few years ago. Here we’ll have a drink and share a meal together with locals from the area at a social dinning event - and maybe meet some more happy people :-)
I was born in the heart of Copenhagen. I have lived here for many years and I have studied the history of the city and the Danish "hygge" culture closely. I am very Danish myself. Actually my last name, Danscher, means Dane! Can it get more Danish? :-) I enjoy meeting new people, sharing ideas in inspiring places and laughing over a drink or two. I’m happily married and have two wonderful daughters. In my professional career I´m a consultant for startups. My passion is to help people bring dreams to life. I also love travelling. I have visited more than 40 countries around the globe.
Dinner A typical dinner that the Danes would eat at home. The menu will vary from day to day.
