Denmark Contour Map

Vacations in Denmark serve up just about the best of everything: historic castles, museums and art galleries, cutting-edge architecture and design, inspired farm-to-table cuisine, nightlife, a safe environment and happy people – all in a rather small package making it easy to get around.

Denmark supports family life, gender equality and good health care, and the flat countryside invites bicycle transportation, reducing carbon emissions. Its capital city, Copenhagen, was also named the “world’s most livable city” for its quality of life. Get into the hygge habit.
Cuisine in Denmark
As is the case across the globe, Denmark’s culinary scene has also reinvented itself and pushed to the forefront with the likes of Noma, with multiple ratings as world’s best restaurant. Danish food is mostly sourced from local ingredients with fusion cooking, molecular gastronomy, and the New Danish Cuisine philosophy. Danes like their drink, and are noted for beers like Carlsberg and Tuborg, and a growing micro brewery scene; there are also a growing number of wine bars. Copenhagen is now regarded as one of Europe’s top foodie destinations.

More About Travel in Denmark

One of the world’s most sustainable cities is Copenhagen, which has reduced carbon emissions by 50% and recognized as the world’s greenest city. Copenhagen’s goal is to be the world’s first carbon dioxide neutral capital by 2025. Nordhavn is a newer district where sustainability is a key focus of urban planning.

Danish cities are known for their trendy nightclubs, jazz bars and live-music concerts, featuring noted Danish and Scandinavian DJs known for their signature EDM, trance, and house music. Music aficionados should definitely visit Denmark during the summer when the country brims with music festivals. NorthSide in Aarhus, Nibe Festival in northern Jutland, and Copenhell Festival in Copenhagen are some of the music festivals and events that take place throughout the summer. Moreover, one of the largest music festivals in Europe, Roskilde, takes place every summer and attracts thousands of locals and tourists. World-famous bands and emerging artists take the nine stages and for four days, music spills out from morning until night. For those visiting Denmark in the winter, events take place throughout the year, and winter travelers can always find a smoky-jazz bar filled with saxophone tunes.

There’s classic architecture and modern design to explore.  There’s Frederiksborg Palace north of Copenhagen and Kronborg Castle, (Hamlet’s Castle)  Shakespeare’s source of inspiration for his play. For modern-architecture lovers, the Royal Danish Opera and the Royal Library in Copenhagen, and The Iceberg (Isbjerget)apartments in Aarhus are worth checking out.
