Denmark, bordered by Germany, is a country made up of 443 islands of which 70 are inhabited with a population of around 5.6 million people. Technically Greenland and the Faroe Islands are part of the Kingdom of Denmark. The terrain is flat with little elevation and consists mainly of arable land. The largest area is the western peninsula of Jutland which contains the cities of Aarhus and Aalborg. The largest island is Zealand which includes the capital, Copenhagen. Denmark has often been cited as one of the most desirable countries in which to live. One of the pluses is that almost everyone speaks good English which adds to the enjoyment of  Denmark vacations.

The capital, Copenhagen, is a compact city and has much to keep the visitor occupied. There is a network of canals on which one can enjoy an entertaining cruise while becoming acquainted with the city. The best known and very attractive canal is Nyhavn with brightly-coloured 17th and 18th Century gabled townhouses. 

The Little Mermaid

Denmark is a Monarchy and Copenhagen has three important buildings connected to the Royal Family.  The Christiansborg Palace is the seat of the Danish government but it is also used by the Royal Family for functions and special events. Amalienborg Palace is the official home of the Royal Family and consists of 4 identical palaces. Rosenborg Castle dates back to the 17th Century and houses some of Denmark’s royal treasures. The Little Mermaid of Hans Christian Andersen fame sits in the harbour and is the official emblem of the city. For entertainment on Copenhagen vacations, the Tivoli Gardens is a pleasure park with attractions, restaurants and cafes. The Stroget is a busy pedestrian street and the principal shopping district. Another landmark is the ultra modern Opera House, one of the most expensive ever built. Nearby is the district of Christiana, a very different kind of neighbourhood founded by squatters and hippies as an independent district and now full of art galleries, restaurants and cafes.  There are several excellent museums which include the Carlsberg Glyptotek with its sculptures and fine arts collections, the Design Museum, The National Museum and the National gallery of Denmark.

Colourful houses in Copenhagen

Immediately outside of Copenhagen are Frederiksborg Castle, originally a royal residence and Kronberg Castle which was featured in Shakespeare’s play, Hamlet. A little further afield is Roskilde, a former capital of Denmark and known for its Viking Ship Museum.

On Denmark vacations, why not visit Aarhus, the 2nd largest city in Denmark situated in Jutland. It is where old meets new from the 12th Century cathedral to the striking contemporary Iceberg apartment complex. The Latin Quarter is the most picturesque part of Aarhus with its cobblestone streets and 14th Century architecture. It is alive with culture and has been designated the European Capital of Culture for 2017. Its best-known art gallery is ARoS, one of the largest museums in Northern Europe. Other venues of interest are the Viking Museum and the Botanical Gardens.

Ancient wooden house on the old town of Aarhus

Aalborg is Denmark’s 4th largest city situated at the northern tip of Jutland. It is known for its culture with its theatres, symphony orchestra, opera company and museums. It is a laid-back city with an old world charm. It is also known for its annual carnival. The history of this 1,000-year-old city is depicted in the Historical Museum. There is the excellent Museum of Modern Art, the Aalborg Historical Museum and the Utzon Centre designed by Jorn Utzon who also designed the Sydney Opera House. The Aalborg waterfront has been gentrified with many restaurants and bars to enjoy on a Denmark vacation. 

Legoland is located in Billund, a small town in Jutland. It is situated next to the Lego factory.  Outside of Copenhagen, it is the most visited Denmark tourist attraction in Denmark and houses the world’s largest Lego model. One other notable Denmark tourist attraction is the Jelling Stones found in Jelling, Jutland. These are massive carved rune stones from the 10th Century AD.
