Det Danske Institut i Athen
Ινστιτούτο της Δανίας στην Αθήνα

The Danish Institute at Athens is both a research institution and a cultural institute. The Institute aims to promote research, education and culture in Greek and Mediterranean archaeology, history, language, literature, visual arts, architecture and cultural traditions.

We offer residencies to researchers, students, and artists among others and we organise conferences, concerts, exhibitions, seminars and courses. We also receive Danish school classes on excursion to Greece and help providing access to museums and archaeological sites.
