On this tour you will be shown the highlights of modern Danish design and architecture from the legendary architect Arne Jacobsen to Jorn Utzon (Sydney's Opera House) to Henning Larsen who recently completed the Danish Design Center.

Starting off from the pier, your first stop will be for photos at The Paustian House - a creation by Jorn Utzon himself. This elegant building with its bright colors and location on the waterfront in a more challenging area of the harbor, is very characteristic for Utzon.

Next, make your way to Bellavista and Soholm where you'll have another photo stop. Designed by Arne Jacobsen and located in the exclusive area north of Copenhagen, these houses are still very popular and only affordable for the few. Situated opposite Bellevue Beach, the marvelous view overlooks the water - and Sweden in the distance.

Your tour continues past Statens Museum for Kunst (National Gallery) - which artfully blends the old and new. Like a protecting bird's wing, the new wing of the National Gallery is attached to the old and still imposing, building from 19th century. Then you will see the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel - the world's first designer hotel, entirely designed by Arne Jacobsen. Every detail was in 1959 designed especially for this hotel: the building, the furniture and even the fork and knives. If time and availability permit, you'll be able to stop and take a look in the hotel and to room 606 - a genuine Arne Jacobsen room that remains just as it looked in 1960.

Resume your driving tour past the Danish Design Center and on to The Black Diamond (Royal Library) where you will have an additional photo stop. This building is another example of successfully combing new and old wings.

Lastly, you'll see Holmen - the Old Naval Station before heading back to the pier. This area was opened up to the public after 400 years when the marines moved out. Bit by bit the area is turning in to a special location with many exciting designer projects under construction that includes exclusive residences, avant-garde exhibition areas and trendy bars.
