If you are visiting Ebeltoft, Odense or Ribe you can join one of the town crier’s walks and get a free introduction to the history of the city. In Copenhagen in summer, you can join a Copenhagen Free Wlaking Tour. The guides are volunteers and you decide how much you think they should get paid. Another option is to join one of the Museum of Copenhagen’s free city walks, which take place every Sunday from May until September.
In several major cities you can also pick up free podcasts and podwalks for your smartphones and let them guide you through the town. Search the web or contact the local tourist office to see if they offer that service. Danish Architecture Centre, for example, has made a series of interesting podwalks that you can download from their website.
