Extending off of the northern tip of Germany is the Scandinavian country of Denmark, which is home to a fine blend of medieval cities and unspoilt countryside. Although Denmark is the smallest nation in Scandinavia, it is home to more than 400 islands of various sizes – all of which are linked together via expansive bridges.
The Danish capital of Copenhagen is one of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities, being home to one of the largest shopping malls in the world and offering a fun and friendly nightlife atmosphere. It is also compact and easy to navigate, which will enable you to make the most of your time in the city. There are plenty of options available for you to enjoy during your visit, with a vast number of galleries and museums, as well as a range of Michelin-starred restaurants including Noma – which has previously been rated the best restaurant in the world.
On the island of Jutland, you can visit the historical settlement of Ribe, which is Denmark’s oldest town and is home to an array of many well-preserved medieval buildings. The Ribe Cathedral is one of the finest examples of this architecture, while the church tower offers one of the best ways to admire the town with fantastic panoramic views. Jutland is also the homeland of Lego and you can find out more about one of Denmark’s most famous exports at the original Legoland theme park.
Denmark is very accessible, with land tours and ocean cruise options available that also enable you to incorporate the neighbouring nations of Norway and Sweden. Wherever you would like to go and whatever you would like to do, TravelQuest can make your ideas a reality.
