Country Highlights

Denmark is vibrant green fields and soaring cliffs that give way to the sea, interspersed with the reminders of the Viking Age visible in the stunning architecture of the quaint and colourful towns.

Ancient yet cosmopolitan, Copenhagen is full of medieval buildings, cobblestoned streets, theatres, galleries and gastronomic delights. The Danish capital is an historic yet sophisticated city where canals, cobbled squares and copper spires blend effortlessly with stunning contemporary architecture. With fabulous art galleries and restaurants in abundance, its no surprise Copenhagen is a popular destination for travellers.  The pastel-coloured, picturesque Nyhavn (New Harbour) is a popular spot for locals and travellers alike to enjoy a drink.  Hans Christian Anderson lodged at various addresses in Nyhavn for 22 years.

Famous to Copenhagen is the alternative ‘free city’ of Christiania – a hippy enclave in the heart of the city, full of funky houses, restaurants, graffiti and barefoot cyclists. Sensory overload for first time visitors is a normal response to all the rainbows and spiritual figures painted on the buildings but taking a tour with a local is the best way to experience the place.

A trip to Denmark is not complete without visiting the iconic and original amusement park, Legoland. Not to be stereotyped as an attraction for kids, this magical place, which is filled to the brim with creative and admirable craftsmanship, proves to be a day of fun for the whole family. There are also majestic castles, Viking ship museums and wonderful coastal towns such as Skagen to discover.

The second largest city in Denmark, and the new culinary capital of the country is Aarhus. From the modern restaurants and bars of the central city to the delis and cafes of the Latin quarter, Aarhus is quickly become a place of youthful bohemianism and Europe’s next trendy, underground place to be. Chosen as a European Capital of Culture for 2017, Aarhus is a city in love with food, creative, safe and still relatively undiscovered by tourists.

In the Kingdom of Denmark you will also find the Faroe Islands, easily accessible from Copenhagen. Be inspired by the stunning scenery of this small but breathtaking island, where the range of activities is endless.
