A walk towards the hidden gems of Copenhagen

Migrations have historically played a pivotal role in shaping Copenhagen. Over centuries, the city has witnessed waves of migration, contributing significantly to its growth and cultural diversity. These migrations have brought new ideas, traditions, and perspectives, fostering innovation and a cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Copenhagen is a globalizing city enriched by migration from around the world. It’s a melting pot of cultures, where people from diverse backgrounds coexist, enjoying international cuisine and celebrating various forms of art and music. Migration has made Copenhagen more diverse, innovative, and interconnected.

Migrantour arrived in Copenhagen in March 2021. Migrantour Copenhagen has been doing public tours and developed new scripts to do tours for schools and younger kids. We have also done a sustainability tour that relates Copenhagen’s migration history in relation to sustainability.

Migrantour Copenhagen primarily conducts tours in Nørrebro, a vibrant and culturally diverse district that has been home to generations of migrants. The tours explore narrow streets and rich history.

Migrantour Copenhagen is promoted by Crossing Borders a non-profit organization empowering young people to become active global citizens. Established in 1999, it has grown into a prominent organization with international partnerships, including UNESCO.
