In addition to meeting other newly accepted students, you will get a proper introduction to your study programme and DTU.

Each year, the President and the Dean of Undergraduate Studies and Student Affairs take a week out of their busy schedules to drives hundreds of miles across Denmark to visit all freshers' trips. 
The students usually repay them by decorating their car in a festive manner....

You can register for the freshers’ trip by using the registration form which you will receive by email from PF. Please see PF's website for more information.
