Networking about town
An offer of a sightseeing event for the delegates who wish to explore Copenhagen Wednesday evening – and continue to network with their fellow delegates. Signing up for this event will be possible during the first days of the conference (near the registration desk). You will be able to sign up for one of the 6 informal tours described briefly below. Dinner will be at your own expense, but the tours are free.
Christiansborg islet (Slotsholmen)
The islet of Christiansborg has been the seat of government for almost 600 years. The first of many successive castles was built in 1167 and marked the foundation of Copenhagen.
Squatted by hippies in 1971 the former site of a naval base became known as a free town. It has had a semi-independent status since and is the center of many alternative initiatives as well as illegal cannabis trade.
Until two decades ago a busy ship yard, but now a derelict industrial site, the mellow beach bar café halvandet has a unique view of Copenhagen harbor front. Departure by boat from Nyhavn 71.
The Royal Residence and the little mermaid
Walking tour of the harbor front featuring the Royal Residence Amalienborg and the Little Mermaid.
Nyhavn and the playhouse
Pub crawl in the bar-clad canal Nyhavn ending the outdoor terrace just off the busy water-way intersection of Nyhavn and the main harbor canal.
The family amusement park of Tivoli was founded in 1843. Apart from rides and restaurants of all tastes and prices it is renowned for its gardens, lights, fountains and laid back atmosphere.
