Marianne Haugaard Hansen

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

Your favourite place
”Landbohøjskolens Have (garden) on Frederiksberg is one of my favourite places in Copenhagen. The garden is on the smaller side and not as well-attended as, for example, Frederiksberg Gardens. For this reason it is (in my opinion) something of a hidden gem. The garden holds old trees, beautifully arranged flower beds and a rose garden, and I often go there to read a book, have a picnic or play a game of petanque on the field they have there. In the summertime there is even a small café where you can have a coffee or another refreshment.”

Your favourite Danish artist
”Danish musician Søren Huss creates some truly beautiful and melancholy songs that make for perfect listening on a classic Danish day when the weather is cloudy and grey. One of the things I especially appreciate about his music is the fact that his lyrics are beautiful, touching and very honest.”
