The Danish Village

We are pleased to invite you to The Danish Village. Here, you can meet our partners and you get a chance to experience the diverse offerings of Denmark through engaging activities, including ECCO trend shows, Shakespeare performances by Hamlet’s Castle Kronborg, autograph sessions with the Danish equestrian teams, interviews, food tastings, and much more.

In the Danish Village, you can visit Living Home - a real size, modern Danish holiday home that not only gives its visitors a feeling of what holiday in Denmark is like but also represents the best of Danish design and sustainable energy solutions. Among the Danish exhibition stands are also an ECCO pop-up lifestyle store and a static display of three Royal coaches, including the famous golden coach. Did you not book you ticket for the ECCO FEI European Championships 2013 in Herning yet? Don’t worry – you can also do this in the EC 2013 exhibition stand in the Danish Village.

Each day will bring new and exciting experiences in the Danish Village. And everyone is invited to join. We are looking forward to welcoming you.
