Explore the narrow streets of this charming fishing village

Upon arrival in Dragør, you'll be greeted by the charming coastal town with its characteristic, yellow-painted houses, cobblestone streets, and a tranquil harbor. Get ready to step back in time! Embark on a leisurely guided walk through the oldest part of Dragør, with its delightful hollyhocks adorning the picturesque houses. Your guide will lead you through narrow streets, sharing the history of this idyllic fishing village, including the herring trade, piloting, the bleaching of fabric, and the tradition of keeping geese. You'll also hear stories about Karen Blixen, the famous author who spent time in Dragør. During World War II, Dragør played a significant role in helping Jewish citizens escape to Sweden. Your guide will seamlessly integrate this poignant history within the guided walk, offering insights into the Danish Resistance's efforts to save Jewish lives.

Dragør and a look towards Sweden

As you embark on this half-day adventure, your guide will introduce Dragør's rich history, including the herring trade, piloting, and more. Along the way, your guide will provide historical insights, sharing stories about Christian 2nd, his mistress Dyveke, and the intriguing tales of the Dutch farmers who played a role in the region's history. You will see the bridge to Sweden from afar and you can take in stunning views, and learn about the development of this area with the new marina and beach area.

HYGGE at a local cafe

After the walk, it's time to unwind and savor a delightful Danish tradition - coffee and cake. We'll visit a local café, where you can enjoy a cup of aromatic coffee or tea, paired with a scrumptious piece of Danish cake. Take in the cozy atmosphere of the café and get the explanation on what HYGGE is all about. Before returning to Copenhagen enjoy some free time to explore Dragør at your own pace. Stroll along the harbor, visit local shops, or simply relax in one of the town's tranquil squares.

Our copenhagen started with cold misty n fog but Sara warmed it up instantly with stories full of history and wit!!!! She and Nils were really friendly and did their best to orientate us in this cool city .... highly recommended - see u guys in summer!.”


Sara was our tour guide in Copenhagen, she introduced us to the city and showed us how beautiful Copenhagen is. During the 4 hour walk we stopped at the palace and learned about Royal family, visited university, some historic churches, learned about history of Jewish community in Denmark and other sites (sorry, little Mermaid was not on our agenda). Sara took us to the hidden spots which we otherwise would miss, gave us great recommendations for our stay in the city. We absolutely enjoyed the tour and the city. We want to come back!
