Mikael Hertoft

We have asked our teachers to recommend a place, some Danish music or a Danish artist. This is what Mikael recommends.

Favourite place in Copenhagen
"My favourite place in Copenhagen is probably Kastellet – the pentagonal fortress that is an emerald pearl in the middle of the city, and from where you can look out across Copenhagen harbour and Øresund."

Do you have a favourite Danish singer?
"I am very fond of Kim Larsen, who died in 2018 – one of the greatest musicians of his generation, and the writer of many of our most known and beloved songs. His music is excellent for learning Danish." 

Do you have a favourite Danish writer?
"There are many writers for me – but I particularly love Dan Turell and his quirky language and relaxed tolerance towards existence."
