Overview of Denmark

 

Denmark boasts one of the highest standards of living in the world, and is happy to extend its many premium experiences, luxurious pastimes and pleasures to visitors. The country is almost totally surrounded by water, its only land border being with Germany to the south. It consists of the Jutland Peninsula and no less than 443 named islands. With such a wild and diverse coastline to explore, you can stumble across miles of unspoilt sandy beaches, thrilling fjords and inviting coves.

Yet if you can tear yourself away from the Danish coast there is plenty more to discover. There are the scenic lake districts, lush rolling hills and colourful valleys dotted with romantic windmills.

This is a fairy tale landscape, and as you are taking in your share of moated castles, picturesque cobblestoned villages and eccentric historic buildings, it soon becomes clear exactly where Hans Christian Andersen took his inspiration!

Denmark’s capital city is lovely, lively Copenhagen, situated on the largest of the offshore islands. Here you can enjoy every cosmopolitan, urban pleasure, plus have a day out at Tivoli Gardens amusement park. If it’s the countryside you are seeking, you can cycle through beech woods exploring the sleepy medieval villages in their midst. Out on the ever-present water there are ferries to jump aboard to visit the islands and marvel at the awesome bridges, such as the 10-mile (16km) span that links Denmark to Sweden.

With such a vast coastline at your mercy, sampling some of the freshest fish in the country is an absolute must, while exploring the Vikings’ maritime history at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde helps to bring Denmark’s incredible history to life.

It all adds up to a very civilised, welcoming destination, with many attractions as sweet and tempting as the flaky pastries that we know as 'Danish'.
