Introduction to Copenhagen Tour
Do we visit the interior of the castle or palace?
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.
Mathilde has an MA in design from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. Her interest within design is what it can tell us about the broader culture and changes in society. She sees design as a field that lays between function and aesthetics, that can show us what our ideals of ‘the good life’ are. Mathilde has lived in Copenhagen for the last 12 years, she has studied design at schools in Copenhagen, Eindhoven (Holland) and Kolding (Denmark). From these experiences gained a wide knowledge of different approaches to design. She has worked with children ranging from ages 2 to 15 years and has from this, and her own family life, solid experience in how to create truly engaging communication.
