Are you tired of running from attraction to attraction with a fear of missing out? My mission is to help you experience Greater Copenhagen with no rush. I am a fan of slow travel and I am not trying to show you it all in no time. I want to give you plenty of time to immerse yourself in the experiences that I provide on my guided tours, city walks and hikes.
The woman behind Slow Tours Copenhagen
My name is Bente Hoffmann and I am the founder of Slow Tours Copenhagen. I am born and raised in the Copenhagen area and have lived here most of my life. And I never stop exploring the city.
I have a master’s degree in Danish language and literature from University of Copenhagen and have always been keen on telling good stories. I have done the storytelling when working as a writer, an editor, a lecturer, a teacher – and now I do it as a qualified tourist guide and tour planner (educated at Roskilde University). After my family, the good stories are the meaning of life to me and I would love to share some of all the good stories from the long Danish history with you.
I am bit by the travel bug and travel as much as I can – and I like to do it in a slow travel manner. What I like the most when I travel is to connect with a country’s culture and people. I strive to give you who visit Copenhagen that same intense experience.
Besides guiding on my own Slow Tours Copenhagen tours I work as a tourist guide with some of the incoming companies in Copenhagen. I create company tours for corporations too.
Copenhagen has so much to offer its guests, not only in the city centre. Let me give you memorable experiences exploring both the classic sights and the uncrowded places and hidden gems. With no rush.
I am looking forward to exploring and being active together with you!
