DRUID Discoveries


Registration open.


On Tuesday June 12 at 16:30-19:30pm, DRUID offers the DRUID DISCOVERIES excursions, making the most out of Copenhagen and inviting participants on trips to the most happening parts of the city. All excursions leave from CBS (the main conference venue) and end at the conference dinner venue.


The excursions are not included in the conference fee and registration and pre-payment is required. Logon to your DRUID conference profile. You can add and pay for the DRUID DISCOVERY of your choice under "My Registrations" for DRUID18. DRUID DISCOVERIES have limited space and are offered on a first-come-first-serve basis.


All DRUID DISCOVERIES run at the same time. Please only sign up for one excursion!


DISCOVERY 1: Copenhagenize! Bike excursion

With 45% of Copenhageners cycling to work every day, the bike is loved almost like a member of the family. The city is flat and offers a world-class cycling infrastructure, allowing cyclists to travel faster than cars and go places where other traffic cannot go. Join us on a trip into Copenhagen’s fun, picturesque and architectonically innovative cycling lanes, paths and bridges. Unlike the locals, you may not wear suit and stilettos or carry children, dogs and shopping on your designer bike, but there is room for everyone on Copenhagen’s safe cycle lanes. You do not need to be an ardent cyclist to join. Guided tour, bikes and protective gear provided. Pick-up: 16:30 at main conference venue (CBS). End: 19:00 at the DRUID Conference Dinner venue.


DISCOVERY 2: Copenhill! Power plant and ski slope

The main waste management plant of Copenhagen is not only a state-of-the-art recycling and heat and power waste-to-energy plant, it is also an artificial ski slope, recreational hiking area, and Scandinavia's highest climbing wall. Designed by world-renowned architechts Bjarke Ingels Group, Copenhill was completed in 2017. DRUID has managed to arrange a visit for a limited number of DRUID participants, offering an unique chance to peak into Copenhill's technological as well as architectonical innovations. Pick-up: 16:30 at main conference venue (CBS). End: 19:00 at the DRUID Conference Dinner venue.


DISCOVERY 3: City Walk! Classic sightseeing with a twist

Join is for a city walk convering some of Copenhagen's classic sights, including The Royal Theatre, Nyhavn, The Habour Bridges, The Royal Castle, The Opera, and of course, The (Very!) Little Mermaid. It will be two hour's lovely, quaint, relaxed walk, offering the guides' personal perspectives on the city, city planning, as well as few tips for unusual sights, and, perhaps, a refreshment or two in the guide's personal favourite haunts. Pick-up: 16:30 at main conference venue (CBS). End: 19:00 at the DRUID Conference Dinner venue.



Wind your own way through the temptations of Copenhagen, until you arrive at the Conference Dinner venue. At your own peril: Drinks might be involved, so pick your excursion partners carefully! Departure: 16:30 at main conference venue (CBS). Please be at the DRUID Conference Dinner venue by 19:00. No registration required - walk at your own initiative and leisure!
