Destination Denmark: 6 Reasons to Visit Southern Scandinavia

Lots to do for both kids and adults As well as the lovely beaches (yes, there are beaches in Denmark!)

1. Lots to do for both kids and adults

As well as the lovely beaches (yes, there are beaches in Denmark!) there are several renowned attractions located around the country.

The obvious starting point is capital Copenhagen with its famous Little Mermaid stature, the Tivoli amusement gardens and the Copenhagen Zoo, one of the oldest in Europe.

Kids will love Legoland, probably Denmark’s most famous export and when it’s hot, cool off at Faarup Sommerland, Denmark’s biggest water park.

Art lovers will enjoy the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and its display of art from Giacometti, Picasso and Warhol as well as many Danish artists.

2. Adventure Activities

Denmark is surrounded by water so water sports are a big part of life. The two largest Danish islands Zealand and Fyn are ideal for windsurfing, parasailing, jet skiing, swimming, fishing and other outdoor activities.

3. Delicious Danish Cuisine

Denmark is famed for its bacon but it’s also known for other smoked meats which are a Danish delicacy. Those with a sweet tooth will already be familiar with the Danish pastry, (often just called a "Danish"), which has become a signature of Denmark.

4. Pleasant Climate

Summers in Denmark are pleasantly warm, with temperatures averaging 21C but often rising to the upper 20s during July and August – warm enough for you to want to cool off by taking a plunge into one of Copenhagen’s city swimming beaches.

5. The Fairytale Experience

The Danes are a nation of royalists and you’ll find enchanting castles and palaces dotted all around the county. Denmark’s enchanting landscape inspired the Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen, author of The Snow Queen and The Ugly Duckling.

You can step right into the fairy tale by visiting haunted Dragsholm Castle – but beware you might bump into one of its hundred ghosts.

6. It’s easy to get around

Denmark is the smallest Scandinavian country so nothing is ever too far away. Take in the beautiful scenery by exploring the country by car, on foot or if you stay in Copenhagen, consider renting a bike. Copenhagen is one of the most bike-friendly capitals and famous for its cycle chic.
