We love exploring the smaller wonders of a city and seek out its hidden places in the side streets and on the quieter plazas. We value time over money and slow over fast, and we believe passionately that simple is better. So join us, undisturbed by emails and phone calls, and navigate the city with a beautiful, printed map that fits your pocket or purse perfectly.
We won’t overload our guides, but simply give you those things that differ them from the rest. A good selection of fine places not everyone will find. Get them here – enjoy!
Tine & Jakob
