Find an event for you and the family to do together, or round up your besties and do something that doesn’t involve a cocktail; there’s plenty of time for that later. Have some good, wholesome fun!

The Six Forgotten Giants 

Copenhagen based artist Thomas Dambo and his team have been all over the world recycling used materials into art, more specifically, giants. These giants are placed into nature and you can find them by using a map on your phone; they are listed in Google Maps or on Thomas Dambo’s website.  

The six giants are located around the Greater Copenhagen Area and were created to get people out into nature and see what you can achieve by recycling.
