e-architect has been operating Architecture Walking Tours in Europe for over a decade.
We typically show groups key contemporary European buildings within the historic context, but our architectural tours can focus on just historic or just new architecture.
e-architect operate both European architecture walking tours and architectural bus tours. Our European tour guides all have an architectural background and many of them are also architects. Each city offered in Europe has a standard tour framework but many of our Clients request tailored programmes.
We are happy to incorporate your needs and interests for your European architecture tour.

European Walking Tours
The European Architecture Tour can be an introduction to the city’s main buildings or can be tailored to your group’s architectural interests. For some European cities we can also arrange a bus tour, though in larger cities like London and Paris we frequently use the metro system. Cycling is a popular alternative, especially in failry flat cities like Copenhagen and Amsterdam.
