City of Copenhagen and Lund awaits you!

Technical University of Denmark with Lund University will be your host this summer.

Copenhagen is a pocket-sized fairy tale and at the same time, a buzzing and innovative hub of ideas. Copenhagen is a city large enough for every kind of life philosophy, but small enough to bicycle from one end to the other in twenty minutes. It is all there, the urban pulse in the cobbled streets, the castles and bell towers, the artists, makers and the green grass, the mothers, babies and their strollers, the hipsters and their dreams, the prince and the queen. More about Copenhagen.

Lund is a charming city that combines ancient with modern. It is said that you can spend your whole life here without finding all the quiet little corners and beautiful buildings. In the surroundings of Lund there are delightful hiking trails, castles and other interesting sights that you should not miss. Explore Lund.
