Danish gastronomy producers present around 100 delicacies from 7th to 19th September
Fancy some culinary delights from the north? On the occasion of the German-Danish Year of Friendship, visitors to the KaDeWe in Berlin (and the Alsterhaus in Hamburg too) can feast on culinary delights all over Denmark from 7 to 19 September. On the food floors of the two department shops, 18 Danish gastro producers will be presenting samples of around 100 different products – from tea, liquorice, marzipan and chocolate to crackers, fish, mustard and sauces, gin, aquavit and other schnaps specialities. The Danish Weeks in KaDeWe and Alsterhaus are organised by the Royal Danish Embassy in Berlin, the Danish Association of Agriculture and Food (Landbrug & Fødevarer) and Denmark’s official tourist board VisitDenmark.
In 2020, Denmark and Germany are officially celebrating their year of friendship with many joint activities – culinary delights are a must, of course, as there is much that unites the countries, but also many specialities of their own. The list of Danish producers who will be presenting themselves in September on the 6th of KaDeWe is long, but still only a small selection of what the neighbouring country has to offer: A.C. Perchs, Borngros, Bornholmerhampen, Bottles by Malund, Cervera, Danish Speciality Foods, Empirical Spirits, FANGST, Gin Heroes, Karamel Kompagniet, Kjærstrup, Snaps Bornholm, Stauning Whisky, Summerbird, Syltet, VI.ER Akvavit, Økoladen and Østerlandsk 1889 Copenhagen. A highlight for all Berliners is also the visit of Enie van de Meiklokjes in the KaDeWe on 10 September. Between 13:00-15:30, the passionate baker and presenter will enjoy Danish products together with all those interested in culinary delights and will talk about her love for the neighbour country in the north.
The 6th floor of the KaDeWe is open from Monday to Saturday from 10:00 to 20:00, on Fridays until 21:00.
