Denmark still part of the Gastro Elite

The world’s 50 Best Restaurants 2015 have been announced in London!

Good news – Denmark is still a culinary hotspot. The 15 Danish restaurants have 18 Michelin stars altogether. Three restaurants have two Michelin stars, and the world famous Noma has now been in the Top 3 four times in six years.

This year Noma received a third place, and Copenhagen’s “Relæ” is now number 45. On a bigger scale, Geranium was given the 51st place on the Top 100, with Amass following on the 66th place.

We’re not surprised that one in three tourists mention “Food” as one of the main reasons to visit Denmark!

Curious to know what the fuss is about? Let us show your group the organic nr. 45, Relæ, which is all about the New Nordic cuisine. Head chef Puglisi previously worked at El Bulli and Noma, guaranteeing a world-class gastro experience in the cosy and hip Nørrebro neighbourhood in Copenhagen.

Looking for the upcoming restaurants? We always have our eyes on the next big thing…

BDP Supports: BYBI sustainable honey production

BDP has supported BYBI’s fascinating and sustainable honey production concept since 2012 and has only grown more fond of it over the years. Apart from sponsoring 140.000 of the City Bees, we also plan tours and events with BYBI.

Have you ever tasted honey ice cream? BYBI is all about sustainability; the ice cream bicycle can be booked for groups all over Copenhagen, serving refreshing, locally-produced honey ice cream.

We can also arrange a special “honey tasting”, where your group tastes the different honey varieties produced in Copenhagen’s neighbourhoods. Each jar of honey has its own story.

Interested in getting even closer to the bees? For a hands-on experience, we can plan your group’s visit to BYBI where you get to produce your own honey! Each participant gets to take a jar of honey home as a reminder of this unique experience featuring so many wonderful colours, smells and tastes.

Try a combination of these experiences; how about a bicycle tour in Copenhagen with a pit stop for a honey tasting? A guided walking tour can also be arranged with a short break in e.g. the beautiful park “Kongens Have” where your group finds the BYBI ice cream bicycle for fresh and sweet honey ice cream.

Get in touch with Ebbe Kiær for more information: ek@bdp.dk or +45 33 45 45 11.

About BYBI:

The company was founded in 2010 with the core values of being green, sustainable and enriching the local community and environment through the production. BYBI does this by involving asylum seekers and the homeless; BYBI supports the socially excluded through education in honey production, sale and bee reproduction. Today there are approximately 20 bee yards in Copenhagen and the number keeps growing.

Torvehallerne

Visit Torvehallerne – The colorful food mekka of Copenhagen

This unique gastro market square offers everything from Danish fish cakes with remoulade (relish) at Boutique Fisk to deliciously salty Liquorice by Johan Bülow or traditional Danish Smørrebrød with beautiful garnish from Hallernes Smørrebrød.

While you’re there, head over to Grød’, the world’s first porridge bar!

The market square is approximately 7.000 m2 with two large indoor markets and lots of seating space both indoor and outdoor, suitable for groups of all sizes.

Visit Torvehallerne to give your group a refreshing and inspiring experience in an atmosphere not found elsewhere in Copenhagen. It is also a place where you meet many locals, as is has become a very popular place for shopping and a meeting place to get a bite to eat. Whether you go to Torvehallerne for shopping, dining or just simply to have a look around – it is a place to remember and a perfect stop on a “treasure hunt” or similar.

To discover how we can plan your visit to Torvehallerne and for more details, please call Ebbe Kiær on +45 33 45 45 11 or contact him by e-mail on: ek@bdp.dk.

Jægersborggade

Have you already seen the typical tourist attractions and are looking for something else? If you’re seeking an afternoon away from the crowded touristy areas, the trendy and edgy Nørrebro neighbourhood around Jægersborggade might be just right for your group.

Helle Rosborg from BDP Cruise is particularly fond of the area because:

“It’s so cool – small designer shops and coffee shops, restaurants and a few little factories making all kinds of sweets. It’s so nice there. The streets Elmegade and Birkegade close by are also great for shopping clothes, shoes and furniture.”

The neighbourhood aims to inspire and surprise with its 40 speciality shops. BDP can plan a visit for your group at Karamelleriet to experience the old-fashioned production of handmade caramels, or, for a more hands-on experience, we will organize a visit to RO Chokolade, where your group can make their own traditional, Danish ‘Flødeboller’ at the chocolate factory. We will have to warn you, though; RO Chokolade’s lime ganache and apple-cinnamon marzipan are addictive.

To arrange your group’s visit to Jægersborggade and the surrounding area, please call Ebbe Kiær on +45 33 45 45 11 or contact him by e-mail at: ek@bdp.dk.

Copenhagen Street Food

Taste an organic beer from Danish micro-breweries at “Stormly” or – for the hungry ones – enjoy a steak marinated in cider for 24 hours at the Berlin-siblings’ Comptoir du Cidre. Here your group can visit the 25 food trucks, stalls and containers for lunch, or spend an afternoon or evening with the local Copenhageners in an international atmosphere.

Copenhagen Street Food is located on Papirøen, next to charming Christianshavn and the old hippie-village Christiania. Just opposite is the Royal Theatre, and across the canal, you see the Opera; this venue offers one of the best views of the harbour. The venue is suitable for groups of all sizes; if you are seeking a casual, cosy place right at the centre of the city, Copenhagen Street Food is the place to go.

It is a great place for groups to sit back and relax while enjoying the view of the harbour with a cold, organic juice and a platter of charcuterie, while others might prefer having a seat inside at one of the food stalls, tasting Il Matarello’s homemade fresh pasta, or yakatori at the Japanese street kitchen, Yatai.

The high season begins on April 20. Want to know more about Copenhagen Street Food and how we can plan your visit? Please call Ebbe Kiær on +45 33 45 45 11 or contact him by e-mail at :ek@bdp.dk.

BDP Recommends: Luleå, Sweden

Looking for a Nordic Adventure?

Whether you are in the mood for a husky sleigh ride, a snow scooter trip or a gala dinner on the ice under the waves of the colourful Aurora Borealis, Luleå in the Swedish Lapland is the place to go for a Nordic Adventure. If you are fond of music, a visit during the absolutely unique ‘Ice Music’ season is recommended – as the name indicates, it is music played on ‘ICEstruments’ and in an ICEconcerthall with a temperature of -5°C.

The BDP team headed north for an exciting Kick Off trip in the cosy, Swedish winter landscape. When asked about the best Nordic Adventure in Luleå, BDP answered:

“We stopped for lunch along the way on the snow scooter trip. It was freezing, -12°C, and our reindeerblanket had frozen to ice – but the fireplace made it warm and cosy!”
– Nick Courtney, Key Account Manager

 

”We were in the sauna for 5-10 minutes, and then went to roll in the snow – then back into the sauna. I mostly stayed in the hot tub afterwards, but Henrik rolled in the snow many times – he was brave!”
– Nathalie Lambert, Event & Meeting Designer

 

”Luleå is something you never forget. And the food was amazing, we ate reindeer and moose meat.”
– Kamma Dal, Project Manager, Cruise

 

Offering plenty of activities, there is always something to do. Compared to other popular destinations in the region, Luleå is authentic.

Furthermore, Luleå is known for its UNESCO World Heritage Site; you must not miss “Gammelstad Kyrkstad” while you are there. At the centre of the Middle Age village is a 15th century church, surrounded by 424 huts for the worshippers that used to travel far for church service.

You can fly from Stockholm to Luleå in just 1 hour

Curious to know more about Luleå and how we can design your next incentive or event? Please call Ebbe Kiær on +45 33 45 45 11 or contact him by e-mail on: ek@bdp.dk.
