#beyourownparade St Patrick's Day Trail

Celebrate Irish culture and links with Denmark on the #beyourownparade trail through Copenhagen city centre during the week of St Patrick’s day from 16-22 March. 

Ireland’s national holiday, St Patrick’s Day, is celebrated on the 17th of March all over the world, including here in Denmark. The Covid-19 pandemic has required that we think more creatively about how we celebrate. So this year, we encourage people to #beyourownparade and enjoy a route by Copenhagen’s most famous landmarks picking up some fun facts on the links between Ireland and Denmark on the way. 

There is a beautiful stand at each of the following locations:

  • Climate - Kongens Nytorv (by the Royal Theatre)
  • Diversity – Rådhuspladsen (Copenhagen City Hall)
  • Hurling and Gaelic Football - Israels Plads
  • Inventions and Design - Købmagergade, Rundetårn
  • James Joyce - Gammel Strand
  • Irish Language - Christianborg Slotsplads (The Danish Parliament)
  • Music - Hovedbanegården/Tivoli (Central Station)
  • St Patrick - Havnegade by Inderhavnsbroen
  • Seamus Heaney - Dronning Louises Bridge, Nilen
  • Vikings - Kalvebod Bølge

We've even created a playlist of Irish music you can listen to while you get some fresh spring air and celebrate with us, together but apart.


If you enjoyed our trail, why don't you take part in our quiz? We'll give a prize of some lovely Irish food for the winner. 


Hope you enjoy the walk and do tag us on twitter or facebook using the hashtag.
