The most logical place to start on your voyage of discovery in Denmark is its enigmatic capital, Copenhagen. A trendy hub famed for its creative residents and its colourful buildings, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to planning your city break itinerary. Highlights include Tivoli Gardens, the Little Mermaid, Rosenborg Castle and the Queen’s winter residence, Amalienborg. Once you’ve ticked off the tourist hotspots, you can easily while away hours meandering through the streets, checking out hip galleries and indulging in local delicacies. If you’re a foodie, this is the place to be with an abundance of fine dining restaurants on offer. The harbor, Nyhavn, is a spectacle you won’t want to miss and there’s always a lively atmosphere. Copenhagen has a relaxed, Bohemian vibe and a visit is the perfect excuse to embrace the Danish concept of hygge. Wrap up, get cosy, chill out and don’t worry about a thing.
Known as Denmark’s garden island, Fyn is the second largest island. It is famed for being the home of iconic author Hans Christian Andersen, and it’s also incredibly beautiful, which makes it a popular choice for anglers, hikers and those looking to enjoy a day at the beach. If you’re keen on fishing, try your hand at catching seatrout in Fyn. The rugged coastline offers some of the best fishing opportunities in the country. For those who want to discover more about the culture and lifestyle, there’s no better way to spend a day than exploring Egeskov Castle and the charming town of Faaborg. Adorned with quaint cottages and narrow streets, this is a truly beautiful spot, take a trip to the harbor and look out for the vibrant yellow bell tower.
Aarhus is Denmark’s second city. Although less busy than Copenhagen, Aarhus is starting to make a splash on the tourist scene, and visitor numbers are increasing steadily. It’s no wonder that more and more people are falling for this city’s charms and its eclectic vibe. Old blends with new effortlessly here and there’s a vibrant cultural scene. You won’t struggle to find museums and galleries here, and there’s an array of live music venues on offer. Gastronomy is also a subject of great interest in this part of Denmark, and there’s an ever-expanding collection of restaurants offering all kinds of innovative dishes in addition to an impressive display of stalls selling delicious, inexpensive street food.
