Social life

In the evenings as well as on weekends it is possible to have social gatherings with fellow summer university students in the local town of Lyngby, or you may wish to visit the many interesting and historic sites in the Greater Copenhagen area. Some social events will be arranged by the university.

While in Denmark you may also wish to experience some of the many interesting and historic sites nearby such as:

  • The old and historic Copenhagen city centre
  • The Nyhavn area downtown Copenhagen with its channels and charming outdoor life
  • The famous Tivoli garden – The oldest amusement garden in the world
  • The royal palace Amalienborg; the Queens residence, and other royal castles of Copenhagen and North Zealand
  • The great variety of museums in the Copenhagen area
  • Hamlets' castle (Kronborg) in the nearby city of Helsingør
  • The royal burial cathedral and the Viking ship museum in the nearby city of Roskilde
  • Or maybe take a less than an hour ride by train or ferryboat to one of Sweden's towns of Malmø or Helsingborg

Please note that the course work is very intensive and demanding. Therefore time for extended tourist activities should be planned either before or after the course.
