Stammtisch – the Danish Contact for Accompanying Spouses!

Are you new to the area? And would like to meet the locals and get to know more about the opportunities here? Stammtisch offer that opportunity to women living in and around the town Brande.
Stammtisch is a community of volunteers in Brande who want to meet new people, expand the horizon and worldviews. Both the local and newcomers can join or host a Stammtisch. It takes place in private houses and the host decides the date, time and if you should have a meal, snack, wine etc. The main purpose is the social interaction, creating relations and to have a good time.

You are never fully bound if you sign up for participating in a Stammtisch.


Stammtisch started in 2010. A Dane, two German and one Polish lady decided to meet up privately while taking turns in hosting their informal meetings. Stammtisch is an open club for internationals and internationally minded Danes who want to meet new relations while staying in the area. Stammtisch is available for accompanying spouses residing in Brande.

Contact Ulla Bundgaard and you will receive an e-mail about the next Stammtisch.
