The Norwegian Crown Prince and Princess visited a small bookstore in Berlin on Saturday. The shop, Pankebuch, specialises in literature from the Nordic and Baltic countries.
Outside the bookstore, a number of people had gathered to catch a glimpse and perhaps a picture of Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit.
The two are in Germany to attend a book fair in Frankfurt, which opens this coming Tuesday Norway is the fair’s Guest-of-Honour this year.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit has an extensive programme during the tour. She opened an exhibition of Edvard Munch’s works in Düsseldorf on Friday. The exhibition is a collaboration between author Karl Ove Knausgård and the Munch Museum.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit will also travel on a “literary train” from Berlin to Frankfurt. Norwegian authors and literature will be on board the train. The journey starts on Monday with the goal to promote interest in reading and Norwegian literature.
The Royal couple will remain in Germany until October 16.
