Danish islands to get “embassy” in Copenhagen

Plan to better publicise events taking place on islands
There are 74 embassies in Copenhagen. Soon they will be joined by a less traditional one, representing Denmark’s many islands.
Ferry firm Færgen is behind the “embassy”, whose aim is to better expose the public to events taking place away from the Danish mainland.
“There are so many positive stories to tell about the islands, and we are always searching for new ways to formulate them,” said Lindy Kjøller, Færgen’s head of sales and marketing.
“We look forward to opening the islands embassy, which will be a meeting place for small and large events focusing on experiences and events on the Danish isles.”
Denmark has 406 islands, 70 of which are inhabited. The embassy will be accessible to islands other than the ones the ferry company has services to (Bornholm, Als, Fanø, Langeland, Lolland, Samsø). It will be based on Sankt Gertruds Stræde by Kultorvet Square. The first event will take place on Friday February 26, about the release of a book about Fanø. Bigger events are promised.
