Things to do in Denmark

Whether you enjoy cultural and historical attractions or prefer wild countryside, open landscapes and long white beaches, these are just some of things to do in Denmark.

Denmark has a population of just 5.5 million people, and attracts tourists from all over the world. The top of Denmark is an island, split from mainland Jutland by the enormous Limfjord. To the north it juts dramatically out to sea on all sides. The landscape here is stunning, and includes long white beaches, cliffs and forests. Picturesque holiday towns and villages are situated throughout north Jutland, which is also home to the thriving city of Aalborg.

Copenhagen is the beautiful capital and offers many popular things to do in Denmark. Visitors can walk in the footsteps of fairy tale writer, Hans Christian Andersen and philosopher Soren Kierkegaard. The Little Mermaid, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale of the same name, sits on a rock in Copenhagen harbour, and you can see Hans Christian Andersen's home in the picturesque harbour quarter Nyhavn. Visit the home of Hans Christian Andersen in Odense. Take a peek at Anderson’s sketches and notes before embarking upon a guided tour of his former haunts. Odense is also home to the stunning Egeskov Castle. It’s an ideal city for a cycling tour.

Aalborg in the north offers a choice of cultural attractions including the world-renowned Museum of Contemporary and Modern Art. The city is also famous for its nightlife with lively pubs and clubs stretched across the city. Some of Denmark’s finest beer is also brewed here. The coastline is a perfect place for walking and hiking tours.
