Denmark Vacations

If you were a Danish citizen, life would be good. Denmark ranks in the top five of just about every major quality-of-life index: happiness, wealth, highest level of income equality, lowest level of corruption, most peaceful nation, et al. The modern state of Denmark certainly would have perplexed its Viking ancestors, the scourge of Europe for ... Read more
hundreds of years. Study the about-face for yourself at Viking sites like the ship museum and recreated Viking village in Roskilde or on an excursion to the ruins of Viking castle in Slagelse. Shakespeare fans will want to head to Elsinore, where the real Hamlet lived at Kronborg Castle, still perfectly preserved. With over 450 islands, including scenic Langeland or Ærø, a quaint village or beautiful natural landscape is just a ferry ride away. The Danish capital of Copenhagen's languorous canals and pedestrianized area practically beg for a slow meander. Families with kids should build their way towards the astonishing Legoland theme park in Billund (the town where Legos originated), an unforgettable experience for any child.

To see Denmark at its finest, visit during the summer (June to August), when the weather is warm and sunny, and the daylight never seems to end. July can get crowded in the countryside and on the coast since ... Read more
this is the time when many Danes take off for vacation; however, it’s unlikely that you’ll feel claustrophobic. Late-spring and early fall are also nice, though some places may have reduced hours. Denmark’s winters may not be as frigid as the rest of Scandinavia, but it still gets chilly, dark and grey; however, traveling during the off-season, as with most places, will afford savings on flights and hotels, and a better chance to get to know the culture without tourists throwing everything off.

Crystal-clear air and lakes make this Scandinavian country a clean green haven. The Danish capital , Copenhagen, has been voted ‘European Green Capital 2014’ and the world’s organic food capital. Half its population could be cycling to work by 2015, in a long line of government environmental measures. Casting the world’s oldest monarch, pretty palaces and castles provide European splendor. New Blue Planet aquarium is the largest in Northern Europe and spring kick-starts a year of design and architecture exhibitions. The iconic favorite, 1755 Hotel D’Angleterre, neighbors Nyhavn Canal, Royal theatre and shopping street Stroget. For the sunniest spot in the Baltic, head to the beautiful beaches of the Danish Island of Bornholm.

Understated in it's beauty Denmark is nice beacuse it is not a major tourist destination. There are so few tourists people are seemingly touched and pleasantly surprised to see that you came up to Scandinavia to visit there little nation. The Danish are big on design and architechture, especially eco-architechture! Scandinavia in general is very LGBT friendly and expecially in Copenhagen where seeing same sex couples walking hand in hand down the street is quite common.

Denmark was very beautiful. I noticed it was very clean. I liked the convenience of getting around within Copenhagen. Everything was close together so I was able to walk everywhere. The canals were spectacular. To top it off the people were gorgeous!

My mother was Danish and our heritage was drummed into me and my sisters from an early age. What a heritage Denmark is, not difficult at all to feel very proud of being part Scandi.

Copenhagen, my favourite places…
My favourite places in Copenhagen are Kongens Nytorv the central square, especially at Christmas when it is iced over for skating, Tivoli Gardens at Christmas again when you can easily recreate your childhood excitement for Christmas again, the renaissance castle of Rosenborg, Nyhavn for a drink or dinner by the canal and dinner at the newly crowned best restaurant in the world, Noma. For the best art visit the Statens Museum for Kunst and if you’re buying art, head to Bruun Rasmussen, Copenhagen’s famous auctioneers. If you’re a shopper, everything is available to you in Stroget, the shopping street, home to the excellent Illum’s Bollighus.

Further afield
Outside Copenhagen, Hornbaek and Gilleleje (the Danish Riviera) north of Copenhagen are charming and old fashioned. They are also close to Helsingor where Kronborg (Hamlet’s Castle) is located. A walk around Rudolf Tegner’s outdoor museum of sculpture is a great option. Sollerod Kro is a beautiful old pub with stunning beech forests around for walking close to Holte, about an hour from Copenhagen. Fyn, the stunning middle island of Denmark is dotted with castles. My favourite is Egeskov. The Hans Cristian Andersen museum in Odense also worth a visit.

My fondest memories is being dropped off miles away from our hotel due to the queens bday being observed and the streets being closed down in accordance. And then recovering from the ordeal with chilled lobster canal side. Nothing quite like it with especially with the hash laden air on the rise. Good times!
