Registration for Spousetivities at DockerCon Europe in Copenhagen is now open. If you’re bringing a guest to DockerCon and they are interested in joining some great activities while DockerCon is running, now is the time to register! I encourage you to book early so I know how many are joining us and can plans meals and perfect the tours for our group.
Here’s a quick overview of the events planned:
On Monday, October 16, we’ll leave Bella Center Copenhagen at 9:45 AM. As the temperatures will likely be cold in Denmark, we will tour the city by bus. Still, in order to get the full picture, sometimes literally, we’ll step off the bus to take in the beauty that is Denmark. On this tour, you’ll get your bearings of Copenhagen during this introduction tour to the capital of Scandinavia. The history of Copenhagen is, to a great extent, the history of Denmark and on this tour we mix the two with anecdotes and personal stories which gives you a personal and unique experience. You’ll see many of the sites considered to be “must dos” in Denmark including:
- The Church of Our Lady
- Christiansborg Castle
- The Stock Exchange
- Amalienborg Palace
- The Opera House
- The Marble Church
- The Little Mermaid
- The Gefion Fountain
- The Little Mermaid
- The Medieval City
On Tuesday, October 17, We have a day of castles, coastlines, and more! We’ll leave the conference center at 9:45 am and travel the beautiful countryside to Kronborg Castle. Kronborg is a 600 year old Renaissance castle located in picturesque Elsinore just one hour North of Copenhagen and across Öresund and Sweden. Kronborg is home to Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Today the castle is a UNESCO world heritage sight and holds a precious place in the hearts of many Danes. After our tour of this fantastic site, we’re off to Frederiksborg. This is another impressive renaissance palace from the hay-days of the Danish past. Coronations took place here for 200 years! Frederiksborg palace also served as a Royal getaway. After a devastating fire in 1859 the palace was reconstructed with help from Carlsberg to host the National Historic Museum, which still resides at the palace. Lunch will be provided on this whirlwind day of experiencing Denmark’s history!
On Wednesday, October 18, our day again starts with an 9:45 am departure from the conference center. We’ll head out on foot (dress warmly) to experience some world-renowned Nordic foods. While learning more Danish culture and history, we’ll sample a eight fabulous tastings of the best food in Copenhagen.Discover why Copenhagen is the home to the world’s best restaurant Noma and arguably, the world’s best chef. If that’s not enough, after the food experience, the tour proceeds to Tivoli Gardens. Tivoli opened in 1843 where guests, including Hans Christian Andersen, were struck by the exotic gardens as guests have been ever since. You’ll have time to explore Tivoli and enjoy this beautiful part of the city of Copenhagen before wrapping up an unforgettable day!
I think you’ll agree that we have a great line-up of activities to experience Denmark in a unique and personal way. Don’t wait too long to register—tickets are already on sale. Don’t miss your chance at a fabulous week in beautiful, Copenhagen, Denmark!
