The “Danish Girl” tour is based on Tom Hooper’s film locations in Copenhagen.
The route and the iconographic references have been designed by Élodie Vidal Masson, Art Historian, graduate of Le Louvre and we have received the kind support of Copenhagen Film Fund.
‘The Danish Girl’ is inspired by the real-life love story of transgender pioneer Lili Elbe (Eddie Redmayne), and her wife Gerda Wegener (Alicia Vikander).
The itinerary will take you through a true story of love and identity, using the work of Gerda Wegener and stills from Hooper´s film o illustrate our themes. During the walking tour, references will be made to David Ebershoff´s novel as well as to Einar Wegener´s autobiography, ‘Man into woman: The first sex change’.
This tour is available as a private tour.
