Where are the women??

Join us on a captivating walking tour through the historic streets of the old Latin Quarter in Copenhagen, as we explore the intriguing question: WHERE ARE THE WOMEN? Have you ever pondered the absence of monumental statues honoring female heroines in Copenhagen? Or perhaps you've noticed the glaring disparity in street names, with four times as many streets named after men than women? Let's delve into these questions together and discover the stories of some of the remarkable women - both renowned and overlooked - who have shaped the history of Copenhagen and their respective eras.


As we stroll past the iconic Women's Building, we'll delve into the ongoing fight for equal rights and suffrage. Step back in time to 1915 and relive the historic women's march through Copenhagen near Christiansborg Palace. From the reign of Margrethe I to the tenure of Nina Bang, we'll recount the tales of dedicated female politicians who defied expectations and left their mark on Danish history. Prepare to gain insight into the dramatic lives of these women, filled with struggles, love affairs, and entrepreneurial endeavors! Join us on this enlightening journey as we celebrate the indomitable spirit and contributions of women throughout Copenhagen's rich history.


Discover the pioneering achievements of Nielsine Nielsen, the trailblazing woman who made history as the first female university student. Hear about Johanne Andersen from Falster, who shattered barriers to become the world's first female priest in 1948. Explore the groundbreaking ideas of Elisabeth Grundtvig, who advocated for empowering men to prevent societal ills like prostitution and homelessness. Uncover the rebellious spirit of Mathilde Fibiger, who challenged gender norms in the mid-1800s, and learn about the talented artist Anne Marie, who navigated life in the shadow of her illustrious husband. Be inspired by the story of Inge Lehmann, the pioneering geophysicist whose discovery of the Earth's solid core revolutionized our understanding of the planet and her uphill battle for recognition in a male-dominated field.

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!
