Copenhagen highlights


Spectacular and innovative in the true sense of the words, is an artificial ski slope and recreational hiking area, built on top of a new waste management centre in the centre of the city.  We have a guided tour of the centre to learn about the project in general, the architecture, challenges and thoughts behind the project before spending free time to enjoy the activities. 

Sustainability by bike

On this amazing bike tour, you will get inspiration on how to lower your climate footprint while experiencing green transformation in the city of the future. On this 3-hour bike ride we learn about what contributes most to CO2 emissions: food waste, the fashion industry, and the cities. The tour focuses on the connection between the individual’s climate footprint and how an entire city lowers its climate footprint. We cycle through Vesterbro, Islands brygge, past Christiania, out on Refshaleøen and back to Nørreport station.


Tivoli Gardens opened in 1843 and is the second oldest Amusement Park In the World. Tivoli is a green and relaxing venue, committed to acting responsible, respecting Tivoli’s visitors, employees and environment. We take part in a  food waste and sustainability workshop before having free time to enjoy the amusements and rides.


The former industrial district has become one of Copenhagen’s hippest areas and a hub for creativity, alternative urban development, festivals and great foods of very different kinds. Easily reached by bike, bus or even harbour bus, the island is an integral part of the city but with its very own identity. All of the stalls in the organic street food market have to follow the sustainable dogmas "Reduce and Reuse": Use compostable food service, reduce food waste, use organic, free-range and local ingredients wherever possible. They also have to sort their waste so it can be reused as far as possible. You'll find more than 50 start-ups in the form of food stalls from all over, bars and creative workshops.
