Born and raised in Copenhagen, Tobias knows the city inside and out. He holds a master's degree in History and Danish Literature and has focused his studies on antisemitism and the conceptual history of catastrophe. He, however, guarantees that his Copenhagen tours about the history of the Jews in Copenhagen wont be a disaster. His great (x7) grandfather co-founded the first Jewish congregation in Copenhagen in 1684, and through his job at the Danish Jewish Museum Tobias has gained valuable inside knowledge about this fascinating history of immigration, integration and persecution.
Kathrine holds a Masters degree in History and Philosophy. She began her career as an education officer at the Royal Collections before joining the academic staff at The National Museum of Denmark. For the past ten years, Kathrine has traveled throughout Scandinavia and Europe with Danish groups when not giving guided walks and visits to international visitors in Copenhagen or writing on her next book. Growing up in Luxembourg and Los Angeles, US, with her Danish family and later in Copenhagen, Denmark has given Kathrine a wide horizon and an American accent. Now living in Copenhagen with her family, she has a keen eye on the local scene and an acute understanding of Danish culture, mentality and history seen from the inside and outside. Kathrine can translate ‘hygge’ and tell tales from Danish history so you get it. Every tour is as individual as the group it is created for.
As a native Copenhagener and a historian, Anders knows almost every corner and story about the Capital city of Denmark. He grew up in the neighborhoods of Nørrebro, Nordvest and Frederiksberg, was later employed at the National Museum and the National Archives and is currently writing a PhD dissertation on modern Danish history. He has a special interest in how the city’s historical buildings, rulers and ordinary residents tell the story of how Denmark developed from being an absolute monarchy during the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries to becoming the democratic and culturally diverse welfare-state of today. He also has a vast knowledge about how everyday live changed in Copenhagen during 20th Century – including how the city was affected by the German occupation during World War II.
