Jodhpurs, Jul beer and the moons of Jupiter

Halloween is not over yet but there are lots of other reasons to enjoy your time!


Mystikkens Univers
If you’re looking for some post-Halloween eeriness, look no further – Mysktikkens Univers is an exhibition of the mysteries of the world. Things we cannot prove, whether they are auras or spirits or superstitions or aliens, are all gathered at Østerbrohuset this weekend. Among the 100 plus exhibitions will be working stands showing you the inner workings of palmistry, hypnotics, witchcraft, acupuncture, tarot cards, and feng shui. You will even have the chance to take a photo with your aura. Additionally, you can get educated in many of these fields through lectures, short courses, films and concerts. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about your own spiritual development, take a yoga class or experiment with musical healing. Don’t miss this gathering of the unknown and mysterious.

Hubertus Hunt
The annual Hubertus Hunt (Hubertusjagt) is upon us. Hosted by the Sportsriddeklubben on the first Sunday of November, the hunt first took place in 1401 at Jægersborg Dyrehave, and it has been a proud part of Danish culture ever since. Approximately 100 riders participate in this massive event, riding for about an hour and a half along a 13km route. Hunters must clear a total of 35 obstacles on their way to Emitageslottet, including the Magasindammen Ditch, a small pond into which some riders will directly plunge. There is a great prize ceremony that takes place at the castle after the race, and with it will come a surge of Danish pride. Come and join the fun.

Don’t forget about one of the most celebrated days in Denmark this Friday: the release of Tuborg’s Christmas Beer. The tradition of J-Dag started in 1990, and the day is one full of anticipation for the release of a beer that is only on the market for ten weeks. On the night of J-Dag, Carlsberg employees, assisted by the Tuborg-girls in blue Santa costumes, drive around to bars and cafés to hand out free Christmas Beers and a large dose of holiday cheer. Don’t let the November cold keep you inside; this is one night you don’t want to miss.

  • Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals in Denmark rarely join a trade union

    Internationals are overrepresented in the lowest-paid fields of agriculture, transport, cleaning, hotels and restaurants, and construction – industries that classically lack collective agreements. A new analysis from the Workers’ Union’s Business Council suggests that internationals rarely join trade unions – but if they did, it would generate better industry standards.
