DC Danish Adventure!
Do like the Danes do and travel by bike with help from Bike and Roll. Start off at our National Mall location where we will help you get everything you need to cycle around town. Enjoy all that Demark has to offer in DC and bring back your Phillips Collection Admission ticket to receive 50% off your rental (full day rate only).
Make your first stop at Tryst at the Phillips Collection, the new artsy outpost of the cozy coffeehouse bar and lounge for some Danishes and coffee. Like the Danish, you are going to want to be fully caffeinated for this remarkable exhibit. (Did you know the Nordic countries consume the most coffee per capita?) The Phillips Collection, like Tryst for best coffeehouse, won the Washington City Paper's 2012 reader poll for best museum.
Venture out of the café to experience one of the world's premiere art collections and special exhibition Per Kirkeby: Paintings and Sculpture where you will discover the sensuous paintings and striking bronzes of Denmark's most acclaimed living artist. Tweet a photo of your bike in front of the museum to @PhillipsMuseum for $2-off admission, or show your Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) membership card for 2-for-1 tickets. Enter to win a trip to Copenhagen in the lobby (courtesy of VisitDenmark, Scandinavian Airlines (SAS), and the Arp-Hansen Hotel Group), and step into the museum shop to admire Danish designer Arne Jacobsen's iconic tea service and a beautiful handcrafted bamboo bicycle by ThreePenny Bikes, WABA's 2012 "BikeBuilder of the Year." Pick up a Washington, D.C., bicycle map in the admissions lobby to chart safe routes as you continue to explore the city Danish-style.
After the museum ride through Montrose Park and Dumbarton Oaks Gardens to the Embassy of Denmark for an awe-inspiring look at D.C.'s first modern embassy designed by acclaimed Danish architect Vilhelm Lauritzen.
Then veer over to the Folger Shakespeare Library to read up on the tragedy of Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark to round out the afternoon.
