Exploring a city, whether as a visitor or as a resident can be interesting but also slightly daunting if you are unsure of where to go and what to see. There has been such a lot of new development in the city over the last few years and many new and interesting places to explore but how to know the best places and the best routes is often difficult. I was aware that the Danish Architecture Centre offers pod walks and also guided walks, which is great but what if your interests are very specific or you want to organise your own tour?
Slightly tucked away on their website in a section where you can build your own guide of the best architecture in Copenhagen (and also Ålborg, Århus and Odense). You can choose by architects, build year and also types of buildings or spaces. Once you have selected your places the tool puts them on a map and adds a little bit of information and fact file about each place plus you can order them in the shortest route (the route is at the back of the guide). It is then pulled together into a smart-looking publication.
It can then be opened as a pdf to print or share, shared via Twitter or Facebook and you are ready to go with your own personal tour. Or if you are very pleased with your guide you can share it publicly on the website.
This is must if you want to explore the city in more depth this summer. I already have a few tours planned.
