People do meet in real life in Central Denmark, however most social activities for international people occur in Århus, where also locals join in different social or professional groups according to shared interests. Often the events are organized through social media, such as, facebook groups or through your work place. Danes celebrate almost everything and quite often alcohol follows along - and there is a good chance your meetings ends with a beer.
