Bike exhibition in Berlin

| January 13, 2012

The Royal Danish Embassy in Berlin opened a bike exhibition 11 Januar at the Nordic Embassies in connection with Denmark’s EU presidency in the first half of 2012.

Does Copenhagen have a special bicycle culture? Or is it just that a lot of people ride bicycles there? Can other cities learn from Copenhagen? The Royal Danish Embassy is striving to answer these questions by presenting an exhibition that was created specifically for the Felleshus. »A City Goes Cycling« shows why the bicycle is the choice means of transportation for so many Copenhageners as they go about their daily lives.

“A beautiful city is one where people like to walk or pedal,” said Jan Gehl, architect and urban planner. And the City of Copenhagen has come up with a number of ideas to encourage more people to switch to cycling. Viewers of the exhibition can find out what a karma raid is, what a tilted trash can looks like and what a bicycle freeway is. And of course, cool bikes by Danish manufacturers, and bicycle counters are not missing in the exhibition. Established names and members of the Cycling Embassy of Denmark like Velorbis, Veksø, Gehl Architects, City of Copenhagen, and the Danish Cyclists’ Federation.
