We are a tour guiding hobby-business that specialises in walks in Copenhagen based on the television series like The Killing, Borgen, The Bridge, The Chestnut Man…
The name Nordic Noir refers to the dark crime fiction genre, also known as Scandinoir or Scandicrime. These bleak, slowly developing and character-focused tv series are exactly what the Nordic countries do best. Now this unique genre has gained a worldwide fan base.
Nordic Noir Tours was founded in the spring of 2014 by Dieuwertje Visser. In July 2016, Nordic Noir Tours was integrated into www.nordic-insite.com, as one of many tours and services offered by our incoming agency.
Nordic Noir tours is now managed by Christine Bordin, founder of NORDIC INSITE.
Thanks must go to Lise Lotte Frederiksen, the original creator of these tours and to Dieuwertje, without whom Nordic Noir Tours would not have existed.
Many thanks also to all the visitors, contributors and Scandifans that regularly send their comments, pictures and articles to share our fandom around the Nordic Noir series.
If you are a fan of Birgitte Nyborg you don’t want to miss the Borgen tour. You will get to see Christiansborg and its beautiful surroundings which were used in the series. Walk underneath the arches were the politicians can be seen plotting and hear how the show both inspired and got inspired by Danish business and politics.
On this tour you will see locations used in The Killing and The Bridge, hear stories about the TV series and how Copenhagen has been used as a backdrop to crime.
You will see some dark corners you would normally not find on your own. You will hear the story behind the famous Faroese jumper and we will tell you about Danish/Swedish stereotypes. Please keep in mind that the tour does not take you near, on or over the bridge to Malmö.
Please note that there are NO open tours at the moment but please do not hesitate to ask as we are trying to gather a small group every Saturday or Sunday, hence sharing the cost of a private guide.
Tours can be booked at any time of the week, providing the availability of the guide (Christine/myself!).
Choose between :
+ Tour 1 : Borgen
+ Tour 2 : The Killing, The Bridge and the like
Each tour lasts approx. 1h30.
Children/teenagers under 18 do not count as paying persons.
All our tours start from Vesterport station.
