The area and getting around

Explore contrasting landscapes

Denmark is a small Nordic country that is famous for its breathtaking ice-carved landscape. The country has several attractions including remarkable juxtaposing of grasslands and fiords and miles of pristine coastline. It is so exotic that it has four World Heritage Sites of the Roskilde Cathedral, the Palaeolithic Tombs, the Kronborg Castle in Helsingor and the Ruins and Church of Jelling. Denmark is unique in its rare combination of modernity and entrenched traditions that will intrigue any traveller. The country has several castles and palaces interspersed between spectacular landscapes due to its history as a kingdom. The stunning sights include shapeshifting floating dunes that change location every year and magnificent cliffs and beaches that seem to be out of a fairytale. Visitors can alternate between marvelling at historic Viking sites and modern monuments such as the floating sculpture and the Maritime Museum.

Tour the city

Copenhagen is a quaint city that epitomises the contrasting charms to be had in Denmark. Copenhagen is a popular travel destination not least because it is surrounded by the Baltic and the North Sea. Visitors can start their tour by marvelling at the Oresund Bridge, which is the longest bridge in Europe measuring roughly five miles. It is roughly 10km from Copenhagen and accessible by cab.
