My way of leaning a new language is to understand its culture. As part of my journey to become Danish, I love to explore Denmark’s history. There are many historical places north of Copenhagen just waiting for me to explore. This time, we took a day trip to Esrum Abbey in the town of Graested. Founded in the 12th century as the first Danish monastery, the abbey played an important role during the Reformation of Denmark in the 16th century.
