Denmark (DK)

Why visit Denmark?

Denmark is the bridge between Scandinavia and the European continent, and as such has developed its own unique personality. With a powerful economy, one of the best capitals in Europe, and a fascinating history, Denmark is worth every second of your time. Beyond its sophisticated streets you will find a magical landscape, which served to inspire Hans Christian Andersen as he spun his enchanting tales. Step into Denmark, and you may find you do not want to leave.

Things to do in Denmark

Copenhagen should be the first stop on your itinerary, and not just because it is the largest city in the country. This is where much of Danish culture is produced, with an excellent culinary scene, a big nightlife, and lots of historical points of interest. See Christianborg Palace, home to the Parliament and 800 years old. Browse the wonderful collections of the National Museum of Denmark, ride the rollercoaster at Tivoli Gardens, stroll along the colourful Nyhavn waterfront, and visit the Little Mermaid that watches over the capital from Kastellet.

Just outside of the capital you will find an open-air museum called the Lyngby Museum, where across 35 hectares there are old farm houses, heritage buildings, mills, beautiful gardens and horse rides around the complex.

If you have always loved fairtytales, and would like to know more about one of Denmark’s most famous sons, then you can go to the Hans Christian Andersen Museum in Odense, which has a huge collection of the writer’s artefacts and sketches. Or see the nearby Egeskov Castle in Kvarnstrup, with a preserved moat and a lovely red-brick Renaissance style.

If you really want to go off the beaten track though, you can fly north to Denmark’s Faroe Islands, just off of Norway, these isles boast some of the country’s most pristine beaches, as well as being home to enchanting grottos, sea cliffs and lagoons.

Best time to visit Denmark

· Either side of the summer season can produce days in the high teens, and the prices are lower than the peak months of June, July and August.

· Winter is cold, but is made up for with traditional European Christmas markets. Be aware prices do go up around the holiday season, and pack warmly, the mercury falls to -1°C in the coldest month of January.
