On the evening of 4 May 1945, Denmark was announced liberated from Germany after more than five years of occupation. On this night, light returned to Danish cities and homes after many years of darkness.

Ever since it has been tradition for Danes to put candles in their windows on the evening of 4 May to commemorate the feeling of hope for the future. The tradition is a cherishment of freedom and how it must never be taken for granted. 🕯️

Today, it is 216 years since Denmark's probably most famous author was born. We are of course talking about Hans Christian Andersen 📖 ✨

This year, an entirely new museum will open in Denmark in the honour of Hans Christian Andersen. Inspired by his fairytales, the museum will feature a landscaped enchanted garden and a building with glass and lattice timber facades.

Have you ever read one of Hans Christian Andersen's fairytales? And if so, which one is your favourite?

Have you heard about the Infinite Bridge in Aarhus, Denmark?

The bridge/art piece was created as part of the festival “Sculpture By The Sea" in 2015. Like all other sculptures, the bridge was removed after the festival, but the local community was protesting in favor of getting the bridge back permanently. 🙌

And boy, are we glad they did! Now the bridge is officially back from spring to fall every year for everyone to enjoy.☀️

How can we overcome food waste? By rescuing "ugly" vegetables! 🍅 🥦

A new survey shows that Danes are willing to comprise on the appearance of vegetables if they can help ensure less #foodwaste and still get the same good taste. More than 370 tons of "ugly" vegetables have already been rescued over the last two years in Denmark!

Today is #WorldWater day 🌊

Water is a scarce resource. As populations grow in size and wealth so does water consumption, putting one of the world’s most vital resources under pressure. By treating water as the valuable resource it is, Denmark has reduced water consumption by almost 40% since 1980!
