Hans Christian Andersen - walking-tour
Walk through Copenhagen in the footsteps of world famous author Hans Christian Andersen - you know: The ugly duckling, Little Mermaid, the Tinderbox, the Nigtingale etc...
The first part of the tour follows the path he took on his very first day in the city, arriving from his hometown of Odense, only 14 years of age in 1819.
You'll get the story of the strangest boy in town and how he made his way from rags to riches in a society, where social mobility was almost non-existant.
Part two gives you the story of his fight to make it in the big city, how he tried his luck as an actor, dancer and singer, before finally cashing in on his ability to befriend the right people - and be sent back to school.
The final part of the tour concentrates on his first years as a struggling author and how the first of his famous fairytales came to life.
On this tour you will also get the story of Copenhagen's transformation from the dirtiest capitol in Europe to ... well, something a little better.
