On June 16, Work & Life Denmark and Sebastian Overgaard will arrange a silent sightseeing and an introduction to Danish smørrebrød!
We will meet at the Queen’s Castle (Amalienborg Slot) at 11.00 a.m. for the sightseeing. From approximately 13.00 (1 p.m.) we will have a smørrebrød lunch at a great location nearby.
This event is offered to everyone interested in seing the city in a new way, having a smørrebrød lunch – and meeting new people – Danes and internationals alike.
Following are on the sightseeing, smørrebrød:
Copenhagen like never seen before – in silence. Challenge your senses, see new sides of the city, and perhaps of yourself.
The Danish author, facilitator and more, Sebastian Overgaard, will guide us on foot through the city. After an introduction, the entire tour will be in silence, stopping at odd and interesting places to observe.
Read an article on the silent Sightseeing (Danish):
The Silent sightseeing tour will end at “Opgang E”, a roof with a view to Amalienborg Slot. Here, talking is allowed again, and it is time for sharing experiences – and “smørrebrød”!
Smørrebrød are the Danish open sandwiches that Danes traditionally eat for lunch. They are handy, can fit in a lunch box, and – so Danes would like to think – they are healthy and tasty. And, when made with care, they can develop into Danish “haut cuisine”.
At this workshop, founder of Work & Life Denmark, Jens Frahm-Rasmussen will introduce the group to smørrebrød and some of his favorites, followed by a build-it-yourself workshop. There is a lot of culture packed into these tasty sandwiches! The preparation of combinations of bread, spreads and accessories, and the sequence is very important!
We will build our own smørrebrød, eat them (lunch) – and not least – socialize with the other participants.
