Copenhagen Waterfront Architecture


A (free) self-guided tour

What about an architecture themed mobile GPS quest, a self-guided tour? At your convenience and for free.

Finally, after much consideration, searching and delay, I have finished and launched this self-guided walk or bike ride in the coolest ‘scavenger hunt’-app I’ve ever seen.

Use your smartphone to follow the proposed track and unlock the story of the buildings and places on the route.

The route is focusing on the transition from industrial harbourfront to attractive public spaces.

You can walk the route or use a bike. And if you don’t have a bike, you can rent one at my basecamp, beCopenhagen, which is the starting position of the map.

The platform (and app) is called ‘Motes’, but you don’t really need the app. The platform runs smoothly also in your mobile browser:

The content is a collection of my blog posts, of which I made some for this purpose. But on this platform, on a map, I present it portable, in geographical context – and looking laser-sharp 🙂

When you have tried out my tour, I’d recommend the other self-guided tours available, also for free. They cover each their neighbourhood of Copenhagen and give you a good reason to stray away from the main streets.
