B.S. Ingemann is a famous and beloved hymnwriter not only in Denmark but in the whole of Scandinavia. At the age of 29 (year 1818) he went on his Grand Tour to Italy and Rome like many of his contemporaries. The experiences of his journey he formed into two collection of poems Reiselyren (541 p., published 1820) and Reiseminder fra Italien (137 p., published 1832). My project is to make these works accessible for today’s readers and at the same time relate them to the Grand Tours of today’s youth.
