History repeats itself as the Golden Days festival, an annual two and a half week celebration of days gone by, returns to Copenhagen.

This year the festival includes a special Hello Heritage weekend for English-speaking visitors and expats that offers a unique retelling of the history of Denmark. The 40 or so events include talks, guided tours, concerts, lectures, city walks, exhibitions, food, workshops, and debates with more than 30 participating museums and cultural institutions.



You can experience at first hand the humorous history of the Danish satirical revue tradition or travel back in time to an on-screen presentation of the swinging Copenhagen sexual revolution.

Perhaps you fancy concocting your own version of the Danish open sandwich (smørrebrød), if you dare, or dropping by the home of artist Karen Blixen. Or why not brush up on the best of Danish art in a one-hour Danish art for dummies tour or merely delve deep into the old subterranean underground reservoirs of Copenhagen.

This is also a chance to break diplomatic immunity and get a rare sneak peek at the interior of the French and Italian embassies.

Or you can learn more about the wit and genius of iconic artist and humorist Storm P or take in a critical tour of the masterpieces at the National Gallery.
With a bit of meticulous planning you can become an authority on all things Danish in what promises to a busy and fascinating three days – check out the English program on the website.
