Join fellow DIS students and local Copenhagen residents for a shared meal at Absalon Community Center! Formerly a church, Absalon has been converted into a laid-back spot for locals to gather located in the heart of Vesterbro. Previously a working class and industrial area, Vesterbro is now the cool epicenter of Copenhagen, and is home to numerous trendy cafes and restaurants.

Each day, Absalon hosts a variety of events, from yoga classes to drawing sessions and movie nights. Of all their activities, the main daily event is the Community Dinner, where 200 locals come together to share a common meal. On this date, we have reserved 20 seats for DIS students. Take part in this unique experience, and hang out with the locals in Vesterbro!

Note: Be aware that the kitchen at Absalon cannot accommodate all dietary restrictions.
