Crown Prince Frederik was first to step up to the plate, viewing an energy exhibition at the Danish Ministry of Environment with the visitors. They visited the off-shore wind farm near Copenhagen Harbour. The trio then moved on to visit the “Mountain Dwellings” building in Ørestaden. President Papoulias and the Crown Prince then attended a climate change luncheon, before the President moved to the Mindelunden Memorial Cemetery for a wreath-laying ceremony. This particular cemetery is for executed freedom fighters and resistence movement members who died during the Second World War in concentration camps.
