Nordic Rose Weekend

Copenhagen, 28 June – 1 July 2018



As an alternative to World Rose Convention, participants from Nordic countries can sign up for attending "Nordic Rose Weekend 2018", which will give you access to attend the weekend program and weekend social events of World Rose Convention and a special dinner arranged for our Nordic delegates.

Price for Nordic Rose Weekend 2018: DKK2960 (Euro395)
Registration deadline for Nordic Rose Weekend: May 31, 2018

It is worth to be mentioned that the price for the Early-Bird Registration Fee for World Rose Convention 2018 (register before November 30, 2017) is the same as Nordic Rose Weekend. So why not benefit yourself by signing up before November 30, 2017 and attend the entire World Rose Conventioin?! This will give you the option of attending as much as you like including the closing dinner.

All Day Tour:
This lovely summer Sunday will take us to the royal palace of Fredensborg – the Queen’s summer residence. Here we will visit the beautiful park and the rose garden, and a rose chosen by His Royal Highness Prince Henrik will be baptised in his honour.
Next stop will be at the impressive baroque park at Frederiksborg Castle.
We will continue to Gerlev Parken – an arboretum – with two important rose collections:

  1. The renowned nurseryman and breeder (‘Aïcha’, ‘Fenja’ and ‘Menja’) Valdemar Petersen’s collection of heritage roses
  2. The collection from four generations of the Poulsen family.

This very special place in Danish rose history is being maintained by Friends of the Garden. The Friends will meet us and be our guides all afternoon.
Going back to Copenhagen we will visit one of the most modern garden centres in Denmark -Plantorama Hillerød.  Here we will enjoy a light supper before returning to Copenhagen.
This afternoon we will also name a rose bred by Poulsen Roses to commemorate The Danish Rose Society’s 25th anniversary.

Price per person: DKK 565
