Beach Hotel Marienlyst can boasts with 155 consecutive years as a hotel with royal regulars and Denmark’s most beautiful sea view. The hotel is a North Zealand symbol of the good life, stylish beach holiday and cultural entertainment. It is situated right on the edge of the sea with a view of the Swedish coastline and neighbour to Kronborg Castle, the home of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

On day 2 we will take you on a scenic drive along the coast to Gilleleje where the rescue of the Danish Jews took place back in October 1943. We will also make a stop at ”Gilbjerget” – the favorite place of the Danish philosopher Søren Kierkegaard – before we continue to Gribskov Culture Hall, where Richard Olivier will conduct a mind boggling workshop – and innovative change-makers get the chance to pitch their ideas to a panel of potential funders and investors.
