Dinner at Robbers’ Camp
Tuesday, 24 May 2016, 18.00-24.00
The spectacular location for the conference dinner is the Robber Camp deep in the Forest of Rold, the largest forest area in Denmark. At the entrance of the Rebild National Park robbers will greet the participants and walk them into the forest to the Robber Camp.
For centuries, this area was known as a dubious place for ordinary people to be - especially at night. In the dark, the Rold Robbers would make their move and attack people who, for one reason or the other, had to pass through the forest, which was the only way to get from North to South at that time being.
The atmosphere of the past will be recreated when we resurrect the robbers for you in order to make a thrilling event with a touch of local Danish history.
During the dinner under the magnificent tree tops - only to be experienced in the region of North Denmark - robber stories and entertainment will keep you alert and make the evening unforgettable!
Of course, the dress code of this evening is outdoor/casual/ and warm clothes and flat shoes are highly recommended!
This evening is included in the conference fee (entrance, coach, food and beverages), and registration for this event is necessary.
Accompanying person and one day ticket DKK 750/EUR 100 - entrance, coach, food and beverages included.
Busses will leave at 18:00 from the congress venue to the camp.
