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.
