Denmark 1: Intro to Denmark

Denmark  1: Intro to Denmark

This program offers a royal tour of the kingdom of Denmark, whose capital city, Copenhagen, is located on the island of Zealand. Here we visit Kronborg Castle, the original setting for William Shakespeare's play Hamlet; then learn of King Christian IV, whose passion for architecture over 500 years ago left the country with historic landmarks, such as the Rosenborg Palace, which holds the crown jewels and royal family treasures. Next we visit Georg Jenson's Silver, founded in 1904 by one of the world's most influential silversmiths, this company still produces a Christmas spoon annually; then we learn of Danish porcelain, which dates back to 1775 and has the royal stamp of approval and the touch of royal creativity. Next stop is Tivoli Gardens, which dates back to 1843, and is still one of the country's prettiest amusement parks; then to the second largest tourist attraction, Legoland, reminding us it was here in the 1960s Lego building bricks were invented. Our last stop is to Denmark's only cliff island, Bornholm, whose light with open water has attracted and influenced artists for over 150 years. 02/09DE IJSCA 30 min.
