Merete Rømer Engel

We have asked our teachers to recommend a place, some Danish music or a piece of Danish music. It could also be a Danish writer or artist. This is what Merete recommends.

Do you have a favourite place in or around Copenhagen?
”Thorvaldsen’s Museum is one of Copenhagen’s most beautiful peaceful havens. I love the architecture, the colours and the yard – where you won’t sense the noise of the city at all. On Wednesdays, entry is free.
The bike route along Vestvolden out of the city and heading south is wonderful. You ride through the woods towards the coast. Go for a dip in the sea at Brøndby Strand, have an ice cream at Vallensbæk Havn or check out modern paintings at the art museum ARKEN. You won’t meet a single car.”

What is your favourite Danish song?
”The Danish band Sort Sol’s song ’Let Your Fingers Do The Walking’. I can listen to it over and over.”
