Opening reception at Utzon Center

Utzon Center stands as an architectural intermediary between the buildings of the city centeropposite the tall, massive constructions by the new water front and the heavy industry on the east harbour. You will be given an introduction to the building and the present art- and architecture exhibitions.

Robbers’ Banquet

Thursday, 30 August, 18:00-

The spectacular location of the conference dinner is the Robber Camp deep in the Forest of Rold, the largest forest area in Denmark. For centuries, this area was known as a dubious place for ordinary people to be - especially at night. In the dark, the Rold Robbers would make their move and attack people who, for one reason or the other, had to pass through the forest, which was the only way to get from North to South at that time being. The atmosphere of the past will be recreated when we resurrect the robbers for you in order to make a thrilling event with a touch of local Danish history.

Buses will take the participants from the conference center to the entrance of the Rebild National Park, where robbers greet the participants and walk them into the forest to the Robber Camp.During the dinner under the magnificent tree tops - only to be experienced in the region of North Denmark - robber stories and entertainment will keep you alert and make the evening unforgettable! Of course, the dress code of this evening is outdoor/casual/ and warm clothes and flat shoes are highly recommended!
