The university chaplains at Aalborg University
International student? New in Aalborg? Want to make new friends?
Then join Dine with a Dane!
If you are new in Aalborg and want to experience genuine Danish culture the University Chaplaincy has an offer for you. A number of local Danes in Aalborg have volunteered to invite two or more international students who are new in Aalborg for Dinner an evening in September, October or November. Some of our hosts have room for two students others for more.
The idea is to give you as a new student in Aalborg a chance to meet Danes in their own homes and enjoy a Dinner and an evening in good company. The dinner is free of charge for you. Previous years a number of the Dinner visits have grown into lasting relationships so who knows: maybe new friendships are waiting!
If you are interested in receiving an invitation for this unique experience of Danish culture and hospitality, please send an e-mail to the University Chaplains at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please write ’Dine with a Dane’ in the subject field and inform us of your full name, nationality, age, full adress in Aalborg, e-mail address and phone number. Please also inform us if you are allergic to specific food or if there for other reasons is food which you cannot eat.
We will do our best to make sure that all interested students receive an invitation. But as the number of hosts is limited we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet all requests.

A visit to Silkeborg
Saturday September 19th, the University Chaplains invited international students on a trip to Silkeborg, in the heart of Jutland. Here we visited the museum Jorn, took a boattrip on the beautiful Silkeborg lakes and climbed Denmark's highest point, "Himmelbjerget" (sky mountain).
