In 2003 Meet the Danes received a Danish award called the Initiative Award from “Fonden for Turismens Fællesråd”.

In 2002 Meet the Danes received a prestigious International tourism award (British Guild of Travel Writers’ Silver Otter Award) for “BEST OVERSEAS TOURISM PROJECT”. An award we of course were very happy and proud to recieve. This recognition, which has been featured in media worldwide, has further increased the interest in our Meet the Danes events.


Many nationalities visit Denmark every year. Meet the Danes would like to give our foreign guests a unique, personal and more authentic experience of Denmark and above all the Danes “the happiest people in the world”*. We invite you to meet and dine with the locals in their homes.

Here you join the local people, who will cook up a homemade dish for you, while you learn more about each other as well as the culture and lifestyle. We are sure they have some tales to tell you.

Thousands of visitors have met our hosting families and got a very personal experience. During these social dinners many of our hosts and guests form friendships.

Meet the Danes is an opportunity to meet and learn more about other people’s way of living.

Visit Denmark: Happiest people in the world!?
