Packing a punch

For such a small country, Denmark has produced some remarkable talents through the ages.

In literature H.C. Andersen remains one the most famous authors in history while the writings of Karen Blixen brought Africa to our mind’s eye.

Søren Kierkegaard was a productive and unique philosopher who left his mark on the thinkers of our world.

Physicist Niels Bohr received the Nobel Prize in 1922 while H.C. Ørsted discovered electromagnetism in 1821.

Denmark is also associated with architecture and design where Arne Jacobsen and Jørn Utzon shine the brightest. Silversmith Georg Jensen founded Royal Copenhagen a century ago and the brand still stands for absolute quality and craftsmanship.

In the world of sport footballers Michael Laudrup and Peter Schmeichel remain among history’s elite.
