The story about the tour
Would you like to explore some of Copenhagen’s greenest and most environmentally friendly spots? Our Sustainable Copenhagen Private Walking Tour covers everything from public transport and building efficiency to the education of Copenhagen’s residents and the sustainable goals of the UN.
Although Copenhagen is most famous for its biking culture, approx. 49% of the population use their bike to get to school or work; there is so much more to sustainability in the Danish capital. Did you, for example, know that Copenhagen plans to be carbon neutral by 2025 or that Denmark’s offshore wind farms cover over 40% of the country’s electricity needs? And we are just scratching the surface!
Having a closer look at the centre of Copenhagen, here we find Amagerbakke, an artificial ski slope and incineration plant, which with its two ovens, burns 25-35 tonnes of waste per hour which is then used to keep the locals nice and warm. There’s also Islands Brygge and the Harbour Pools, showing just how green Copenhagen is by allowing its citizens to take a dip right in the city centre. The quality of water in the Copenhagen harbour, you ask? It’s as clean as the ocean.
From infrastructure to food, thanks to New Nordic Cuisine, the concept of eating locally and organically is largely popular in Copenhagen. It’s estimated that organic food makes up 24% of the total food sales in Copenhagen. Impressive, we say! Covering all things sustainable, we invite you to explore one of the world’s most ambitious climate policies by walking the streets of the Danish capital on our Sustainable Copenhagen Private Walking Tour. If you’re looking for a tour on a green theme, this is it!
