Denmark may be amongst Europe’s smallest countries but it’s still bursting with things to do. Charming little port towns, stunning beaches and its capital Copenhagen – effortlessly cool by day, ragingly hedonistic by night – mark Denmark out as a truly outstanding travel destination.
The two university towns of Aarhus and Odense are, while not exactly bustling metropolises, lively little places that extend a warm welcome to visitors. Roskilde is famous both for its magnificent cathedral, and as the home of the annual Roskilde Music Festival.
Hardly surprisingly, no matter where you go on the Jutland peninsular, it’s difficult to escape the presence of the sea. A short ferry trip from the quiet port town of Bornholm (not far from Copenhagen) transports you to the idyllic island of Christianso.
Hundreds of other islands, many of which are uninhabited, dot the country’s dramatic coastline. It’s possible to walk for hours along its thousands of kilometers of spotless beaches, and over its rolling sand dunes, without seeing a soul.
Appropriately for the homeland of Hans Christian Anderson, there’s a distinctly fairytale edge to some of Denmark’s landscapes. Areas of moorland and woodland and rolling farmland are broken up by strikingly picturesque villages of half-timbered houses huddling round churches.
The country has a number of striking historical monuments, including the magnificent Kronborg Castle which was famously the setting for Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Elsewhere, the burial mounds at Jelling and Lindholm Hoje are an evocative reminder of the country’s Nordic past.
Denmark is an incredibly clean and civilized country; the transport runs on time, there's a whole host of top outdoor activities, its people are incredibly friendly... And, frankly, it needs little else to recommend it.
