What To Expect
Meet your guide in central Copenhagen on your own bike or, if you need to hire a bike (additional cost), arrive in advance to organize the rental. Don an optional cycle helmet, and set off behind your guide. Your tour largely follows cycle paths, so you’ll be mostly away from traffic, and covers around 12 to 15 miles (20-25 kilometers). Pass the waterfront Copenhagen Mall (Fisketorvet) before crossing a bridge to the Islands Brygge area. Then, trace picturesque waterside paths into the quaint Nokken allotment district. Situated along the water, this charming enclave is composed of allotment gardens and quirky, hand-built huts, and houses. Savor the relaxed atmosphere and learn about Nokken’s roots as a fishing community. Break for coffee (own expense) at the Sønderbro Haveforening allotment area, and enjoy a fun ride on Denmark’s only Cuban bicycle—a 3-wheeler with a passenger seat. Resuming your tour, ride by Sluseholmen, one of Copenhagen’s upscale residential neighborhoods. Admire the innovative canalside townhouses and continue around the flower-filled Frem and Musikbyen allotment quarters into more tucked-away areas—some unknown to many Copenhageners. After a few hours of exploring, arrive back at the start point, where your tour ends.

I am so thankful to have find Jorgen and his Bike tour for the Unknown Copenhagen! it has been an absolute highlight of our trip in Copenhagen.
Jorgen is at very first a so sympathic and lovely guide, who knows his city better than anyone and brings you really to places, you definitively NEVER see by yourself! This is guarantee as those places are 100 for locals and not for tourists.
Jorgen shows you the different ways people leave in CPH and this is mindblowing, as totally unexpected.
If you really wish to visit CPH from a totally new angle and understand this city better, I 10000000 recommend you this tour with Jorgen!
A big TAK again to Jorgen and an enjoyable ride to everyone who may book this tour. Enjoy!!! :
My husband and I did this tour in August 2017. We had been to Copenhagen before and didn't need to tour the downtown area again. Our guide was great and took many pictures along the way which he later sent to us. The tour was excellent and we got to see a part of Copenhagen we never would have seen if not on a tour. This tour really focuses on how the people of Copenhagen live rather than taking you to see a lot of historical sights. We cycled through various allotments and other areas where the locals live, all outside the main downtown area. We stopped at our guides's summer home for a coffee and danish and then near the end of the tour went for an optional Danish lunch. Highly recommend if you're looking for something laid back and a bit different.
We had a fantastic day with Jørgen who showed us a completely different side of CPH. We really enjoyed seeing the allotments,canal ways and some of the lesser known suburbs of CPH. We had a really authentic experience, I can't recommend it enough! It was such a treat and an experience we will treasure!
This was a fantastic tour. I had visited Copenhagen prior and did not want to see all the touristed spots. Jorgen presents a fascinating picture of parts of Copenhagen you would never see without a local. You will be surprised at every turn. Copenhagen has far more to offer than you could ever imagine. I couldn't recommend it enough. It was definitely the highlight of our trip to Copenhagen.
This tour truly lived up to its name. We traveled through neighborhoods and saw sights that we never would have known existed. Jorge was excellent about making us feel at home in his special places in the city. He told stories of the area as only a native can. This is an excellent tour if you really do want to get off the beaten track!
This tour was fantastic! We spent our first day in Copenhagen hitting all the major attractions. This was completely different. An education about Copenhagen and the working class, how the city is growing and changing, and how the culture is changing. Jorgan was a fantastic host. Enjoy unkown CPH
Cannot say enough good things about this tour, this was hands-down one of the more memorable tours that I have taken while traveling. Jørgen was a fantastic tour guide and showed us a side of Copenhagen we never would have known existed otherwise. He was so welcoming, offered so much insight and shared so much history of the city with us along the way. He even took pictures and shared them with us as well as helpful recommendations for other sites to see during our trip. Would absolutely recommend this trip to a friend (and have to many already!) - if you want to see Copenhagen from a local's perspective, well getting in a little biking, this is the tour for you!
Wonderful experience. It was one of the best tours I have ever taken in my life. The ride was easy and leisurely. Our tour guide Jorgen was amazing, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend.
