The Danish pavilion was aiming for 3 million visitors. Christopher Bo Bramsen, Commissioner General of the Danish pavilion and former ambassador of Denmark to China, was very happy with the number of visitors.

"The Danish pavilion has been very popular. We have far exceeded our expectations and have reached more than 5.55 million visitors. The reason I underline that number is because the total population of Denmark is 5.55 million," Bramsen told Xinhua.

According to Danish media, this milestone was celebrated by handing a bicycle helmet to an 11-year-old boy at the pavilion.

There has been a concert in the Danish pavilion each week during the Expo, totaling more than 26 concerts. Bramsen is also very satisfied with the administration of the Expo 2010.

Danish Minister of Economy and Commerce Brian Mikkelsen said in the press release: "I am very proud of the Danish contribution at the Expo 2010. This is a unique branding of Denmark in China."

"Despite the event only lasting six months, the effects of this can be seen far into the future," he said.
