Det Danske Institut i Athen
Ινστιτούτο της Δανίας στην Αθήνα

The Danish Institute at Athens is both an academic 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 accommodation to, among others, scholars, students, and artists, and organise concerts, conferences, exhibitions, seminars and courses. We also receive excursion groups and arrange for their access to museums and archaeological sites.
