"Thure Lindhardt's linguistic energy in the role of Hans Christian Ørsted guarantees that we'll never be bored on the trip. His most important partner will ultimately be Langeland. If you've never visited the island before, you're in for an overwhelmingly beautiful experience."

H.C. Ørsted

1777 - 1851

H.C. Ørsted was born in 1777 in Rudkøbing. He and his brother Anders moved to Copenhagen in 1794, the year after their mother died. In 1820 he discovered electromagnetism and in 1825 he isolated the element aluminum. Throughout his life he searched for the secret behind the great forces of nature.

In 1849-1850 he wrote The Spirit in Nature, his true testament to natural philosophy. Ørsted saw no boundaries between art and science and invented 2000 Danish words.
