Wine tasting with people at Festringen

Social life in Copenhagen

Join a course in a Danish “kolonihavehus” with an optional dinner afterwards.

Building a social network in Denmark can be hard, and Danish colleagues seem to disappear into the private sphere after work!

However, despite of that – or perhaps actually because of it – Denmark is the land of associations, sport clubs and other after-work activities. There are a lot of things to do, both in and beyond Copenhagen, and many activities are available for non-Danish speakers as well.

This session will cover what the Danish social life is like in Copenhagen. How do the Danes structure their social life? What activities are popular among expats? How does one meet Danes outside the workplace? What cultural codes should one be aware of?

To create the right after-work atmosphere, this meeting will take place at a Danish “kolonihave” (centrally located summer garden), where you will see a very different aspect of Danish social life, and have the opportunity to BBQ afterwards.
