It is possible to combine our digital city walk with a group presentation. It is up to you to decide, but we recommend that you start with the city walk and continue with a presentation at Europa Experience. The digital city walk takes approximately an hour, starts at Christiansborg and ends at Europa Experience.
Experience Europe in the heart of Copenhagen
Visit Europa Experience to get up close and personal with the EU, and explore how it affects your day-to-day life. Test your knowledge of current EU affairs, and choose which corners of EU politics you wish to examine more closely. You can also take a selfie in the selfie booth and share your picture with family and friends across Europe in just a few clicks!
Get to know the members of the European Commission and the European Parliament, and choose whose work and priority issues you want to know more about - in all 24 official EU languages.
If you live in Copenhagen, you can easily pop by on your way to the King's Garden or when passing by Nørreport Station. If you're visiting Copenhagen, add Europa Experience to your sightseeing list.
Larger groups or school classes can combine their visit with a personalized presentation on a current EU topic of their choice.
We facilitate presentations to school classes, educational institutions and other groups who want to learn more about the EU. We offer a strong combination of in-depth knowledge about EU politics and the current EU agenda, news and developments.
During the presentation, we draw in and engage with participants in an entertaining and accessible way and set the stage for debate and dialogue. In coordination with you, e.g. the teacher, we will adapt your visit and the presentation to your individual needs and educational requirements.

Unfortunately, we cannot fit more than 27 people into our presentation room. If you are a larger group, we will split the group in two. In this case, the first part of the group will receive a presentation while the other can visit our Experience centre or explore our digital city walk.
It takes approximately 30 minutes to explore our exhibition. You also have the opportunity to try our conversation cards. Here you can discuss some of the EU’s big subjects, such as refugees or climate crisis in the form of a small talk (a conversation that centres on everyday life) or a big talk (a conversation that centres on societal structures).
Schools and groups often visit our exhibition in conjunction with a presentation.
We strive to talk about the EU with all citizens - no matter age or prior knowledge of the EU. When you book a presentation, we will do our best to adapt it to your specific group. If you are visiting with a group of students, we recommend a prior basic understanding of:
- The EU and what it does, including the three core institutions (The European Parliament, The European Commission and the Council of the European Union)
- If needed, we will provide a list of recommended material for your preparation.
You can choose between the following themes for your presentation at Europa Experience:
- Democratic challenges in the EU
In this presentation, we explore the democratic development of the EU, and the status of democracy in the member states. We focus on recent developments in Hungary: Erosion of the legal system, anti-LGBTIQ+-laws and media legislation that challenges the freedom of the press. We also look at what the EU can do and does in such situations.
- Migration and the EU
In 2015-2016, 5 out of 27 EU member states handled 69% of all asylum seekers arriving to the EU. With this presentation, we explore the existing and future rules on migration from non-EU countries. Then we explore why EU member states have a hard time agreeing on a common solution. Lastly, we look at the rules governing movement between EU member states.
- EU and the climate crisis
Climate goals, climate actions and green transition. A lot of current political action is concerned with climate and environment - and with good reason. If we keep exploiting the resources of the earth as we do now, we will need three planets by 2050 to keep up. We have a look at the climate crisis and zoom in on the goals set by the EU to become climate neutral by 2050. Moreover, we discuss difficulties in kickstarting the green transition, who needs to be the driving force behind it, and if the consumers should compromise with their habits.
- EU and Denmark: 50 years - what now?
Once there were 6 now there are 27. Denmark became a member of the EU on January 1st 1973 and now celebrate our 50th anniversary. We will make a short outline of the history of the Union focusing on the most important events from a Danish perspective. Finally, we look into the crystal ball and discuss two of the biggest upcoming challenges for the EU.
- Democratic challenges in the EU
