Street Dining in Copenhagen (!!), Kulturnatten, and regional Danish food: Episode #72 of MyDenmarkTV.com
The Street Dining segment of the latest episode of MyDenmarkTV.com (Episode #72) is one of my all-time favourites. We met up with Sebastian Overgaard to experience just what it was like - it's quite likely that you've never experienced anything quite like it, but it really was something that brought hundreds of smiles to faces passing by. A truly wonderful experience. It's really the simplest of concepts - requiring just a small does of confidence and courage, but bringing wonderous results. Even the police stopped by to say 'hi'!
Kulturnatten (Culture night) happens every year in October in Copenhagen, so we caught up with one of the organisers to hear more about it. The annual event sees thousands of people hit the streets of Copenhagn as loads of museums and other culture institutions (oftentimes normally closed to the public) throw open their doors to the crowds. Simply to wander around the streets soaking up the atmosphere is a great experience in itself, even if you don't bother purchasing a Kulturnatten pass to get into the various buildings.
Finally, we review a great Danish language resouce - www.ordbogen.com - and we wrap up by discussing a few interesting regional Danish food in Denmark.
