Auckland, New Zealand
Our goal is to preserve, maintain, promote, foster and encourage Danish history, culture and language within New Zealand.
We organise events to celebrate Danish holidays and festivals and activities related to Danish traditions.
There are two main property assets that the Auckland Danish Society maintains for the benefit of its members. Danish House can be booked for things like social events and fund raising dinners, while Valhalla is a ready venue for weekend holidays
The Danish Society organises and facilitates a variety of activities for members of all ages and interests. On these pages you can read about some of the frequent activities spanning from folk dancing, over movie nights to Valhalla working bees.

We promote sustainability of the environment: maintaining our two properties, and developing the environment at Valhalla.
