Danish design by bike

NEW! Two independent Danish design tours

Discover our hand-picked selection of small, independent Danish design shops and artist’s collectives. Discounts offered at each stop. Full day bike rent included.

These two separate tours take you to altogether 25 small independent shops, galleries and artist’s collectives in the central districts of Copenhagen. Each destination on the tour has been hand-picked for its craftsmanship, quality and uniqueness. At every stop you can listen to a short introduction to the workshop, boutique or gallery before deciding to go inside or not.

The tours include recycled designer furniture, hand-made chocolates, eco-design, small galleries, ceramics and porcelain, jewelry, glassware, graphics, industrial vintage objects and much more. At each stop you are offered a special discount if you show your Bike the City GPS-unit. With these tours you can make the most of you independent ride while exploring the world of independent Danish artists and designers whose works you won’t find on the main streets.

Length and duration:
Tour 1 is the shorter tour, with a length of 10 km and including 11 destinations. It takes you to the districts of Nørrebro, Frederiksberg and the historical city centre. Allow 2-5 hours, depending on how long you spend at each shop.

Tour 2 is the longer of the tours, with a length of 15 km and including 14 destinations. The tour takes you to the districts of Vesterbro, Islands Brygge, Christianshavn and the historical city centre. Allow 3-5 hours, depending on how long you spend at each shop.

The battery in your audio-visual GPS-guide will give you a minimum of 5 hours continuous use. You can extend the battery life by switching off the GPS unit whenever you take a break. For these tours we recommend that you ask for a bicycle with a basket.
