Denmark travel guide

Denmark is a tranquil place with an abundance of picturesque villages and towns, historic castles and monuments, and a coastline that varies from broad sandy beaches to small coves and gentle fjords

Denmark has been voted as one of the happiest places to live, and it’s easy to see why – with serene coastal hideaways and historic towns, Denmark has a cultural beauty unaffected by age.

Step back in time at the ancient Viking fort at Hobro, and watch the extravagant Viking plays at Frederikssund.

In Copenhagen, visit the oldest monarchy in the world in style at the Royal Reception Rooms, or take in the city’s museums, jazz concerts and designer shops.

Out in the countryside, see the scenery from a different perspective, by canoe down the Gudenå river, or go snorkelling in the Kerteminde Fjord.

If you’re on a family break, Denmark is well catered for children, with many theme parks including a Legoland, or visit the birthplace of fairytale creator Hans Christian Anderson in Odense.

Wanderlust recommends

  1. Be a part of Europe’s biggest music festival at Roskilde
  2. Explore the Viking fortress at Hobro
  3. Be entertained at the summer Viking plays in Frederikssund
  4. Discover Denmark by canoe down the Gudenå river
  5. Stroll along the beaches and dunes of Læsø

Wanderlust tips


Car rental in Denmark can cost as much for a day as, it can for a week, in neighbouring Germany – if you’re staying near the border, hire a car in Germany first before driving it over.
