Back in the 1970s the Danish Tourist Board started this wonderful concept of inviting tourists and other visitors inside Danish local homes for a cup of coffee and a cultural chat in a domestic cosy atmosphere. After a while the concept was abandoned, - not because there was no demand, but because the Danish Tourist Board no longer had the capacity to organise these visits.
Make this unforgettable home dinner a highlight of your visit
When this home-dinner visit concept was started on a private initiative in 1998, it was greatly appreciated by the Danish Tourist Board, who also at the time helped out with a few nostalgic memories from the 1970s.
Our cultural programme has become the highlight for our guests visiting Denmark as well as for our hosts. Some of our hosts are actually "old" hosts who were with the Danish Tourist Board in the 1970s.

"Lone and Bjarne were wonderful hosts. We loved our visit. They were so warm and welcoming to us that we invited them to stay with us in Philadelphia if they ever visit the States. Thank you for your support for our wonderful night out. It provided us with insight into the Danish way of life that I’m sure we could not have experienced without your help"!
