Denmark is a wonderful land with over 400 islands that feature colourful and cultural cities.
Explore the coast or trek in the forests of Jutland to reconnect with nature. If you want to get back to the bustle of cities, go to Carlsberg and Smorrebrod on the banks of Nyhavn.
The best time to travel to Denmark is during the spring season in the months of May to June. In Denmark, one of the most commonly visited cities is Copenhagen which offers a rich culture, delicious food, spectacular architecture, lively nightlife and a perfect place to relax. If you want to unleash the inner child in you, explore Tivoli Gardens located opposite the Copenhagen Central Station. In this amusement park, which is open from April to September, you can enjoy the afternoon with chilled beer, live entertainment and rides such as the Ferris wheel and rollercoaster.
Another tourist destination that you shouldn’t miss is the 16th Century Kronborg Castle, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site situated on the coast in Helsingør. Meanwhile, if you want to have a glimpse of the rich history of the country, don’t forget to include Roskilde in your list of places to visit.
This ancient city was the capital of Denmark from 960 to 1536. It is filled with amazing architecture, Viking-influenced museums and religious buildings. By strolling along the brick-lined streets, you will also find the iconic Roskilde Cathedral.
One of the most colourful cities in Europe is Nyhavn where you will find a 17th Century waterfront that is lined with slightly slanted and vibrant 18th Century townhouses. For those who are interested in learning about the history of different places, the Kastellet is an interesting place to visit. This 17th Century fortress has a museum, windmill and bastions—making it a good place to wander around for a couple of hours.
