Discover a country where the lifestyle is as refreshing as the landscape… Make the most of your holiday overseas with our guide to the top 5 things to do in Denmark. We’ll help you experience the best the world has to offer.
1. Take to the water
With more than 500 yachting harbours along the coast, and anchorage at 500 islands, Denmark is designed for sailing. And if you enjoy sea-fishing, local fishermen run angling tours from many of the harbours. What better location for landing your dream catch?
2. Travel way back in time
At the Geocenter Møns Klint on Sjælland Island, you can trace Denmark’s geological history to learn how the modern land and seascape were formed. Opened in 2007, this is a fascinating interactive experience – about as far away from the classroom as you can get.
3. See the sights carbon-free
Denmark is a great place to get around without a car. The terrain is ideal for cycling – and it’s easy to hire a bike and get pedalling. Or perhaps try your hand at horse riding. There are riding schools and centres all over the country, many offering tailor-made riding holidays.
4. Experience the original Legoland
Treat the kids or relive your own childhood at this amazing theme park, at Billund, Jutland. Attractions include Pirate Land, Knights’ Kingdom – and Imagination Zone, where you can ‘dive’ to the underwater world of Atlantis. Go to www.legoland.dk for the full story.
5. Enjoy the contrasts of Tivoli Gardens
In the heart of Copenhagen, Tivoli Gardens is one of the world’s oldest amusement parks – and much more. Three-quarters of its area is dedicated to open space, offering a colourful mix of plant displays and live, free entertainment such as circus acts, clown shows and live music. Then there’s the funfair – more than 20 rides, including the fastest roller coaster in Denmark.
Wherever your Danish adventures take you, make sure you have the right travel insurance – then you can just relax and enjoy yourself.
