Custom Group Tour Packages and Lectures

Let DAC’s expert tour planners create a customized experience for your group – by foot, bicycle, boat, or bus – in any Copenhagen neighborhood around your special interests and focus.

If our standard group tour options don’t meet your needs, we can offer custom tours of any neighborhood in the city. Join our expert guides on walking tours, bicycle tours, and boat tours. They can also hop on your group’s rented bus or explore by Metro.

Our half-day or full-day experiences provide a deeper look into the city around your special interests. In addition, our staff can provide one-hour lectures on Copenhagen’s architecture, urban planning, and public policies. All custom tour packages include entrance to our current exhibitions.

Let DAC host your group for a traditional Danish lunch in our DAC Café or meetings in our conference center rooms.

Architecture in Denmark

Putting people first

In Denmark, architectural policies on both the local and national levels provide a vision for development focused on putting people first. Buildings that support the welfare state – affordable housing, schools, institutions, public spaces, and town halls – are characterized by a remarkably high standard of design and construction. Learn how Danish buildings represent more than 100 years of democratic ideals focused on a high quality of life for all.

Urban Planning in Denmark

Sustainable cities for people

Copenhagen hasn’t always been ranked as one of the world’s most livable cities. Emerging from near-bankruptcy in the early 1990s, the city has been transformed through sustainable urban planning policies with a focus on cycling infrastructure, urban green space, and cleaning up the inner harbor. In this city home to renowned urban planner Jan Gehl, hear how Copenhagen is continually being transformed to improve the quality of life between buildings.

Strategic Urban Governance in Denmark

Plans and policies for future sustainable growth

Copenhagen has set the ambitious 2025 goal of becoming the first carbon neutral capital in the world. A new climate adaption plan to strengthen the city’s resiliency, as well as new policies that promote green infrastructure, have led to a focus on sustainable urban growth. Learn how these public and private partnerships are developing entire new districts on former industrial landscapes.
