What the ‘Meet the Danes’ tour is about
An unusual tour taking place this summer at The National Museum of Denmark is ideal for those who are curious to learn everything about life in Denmark nowadays, straight from a Dane.

Did you know, for example, that locals leave their strollers with their sleeping babies outside cafés or restaurants, or what Janteloven is about and how it has formed the Danish values? We bet you’ve heard about the concept of hygge, but are you’re sure you’ve got it all right? Find out while walking in the hallways of one of Denmark’s most beautiful museums and see a part of Denmark’s past while listening about the present.
