Visit to Changzhou Island

The Crown Prince pays a visit to the historical area Changzhou Island, which among other things houses a historic graveyard for Danish sailors and merchants.  During the visit, The Crown Prince will lay flowers at three named Danish gravesites and get a guided tour focusing on Danish-Chinese maritime history.

Changzhou Island was once known as ‘Danes Island’ and functioned as a base for Danes in connection with the trade in China. Today, the island is a symbol of how Denmark was a seafaring nation with strong ties to China.


Denmark Days – Adventures of Denmark

The Crown Prince takes part in the event ‘Denmark Days - Adventures of Denmark’, which is one of the activities taking place in China as part of the Danish-Chinese Tourism Year. At the event, The Crown Prince will, among other things, name the winner of ECCO’s Walkathon and launch a H.C. Andersen signature route together with Visit Danmark. The event takes place in the historic Guangzhou city centre, where Danish tourism companies are currently promoting Danish destinations to Chinese tourists.


Networking event

As a conclusion to the visit, The Crown Prince will be present at networking event at Hotel White Swan, where Danish companies, tour operators and others will participate.
