Attractions in Denmark
With the region's largest airport, Copenhagen is a good base for exploring the rest of the country. The city represents a thousand years of history and offers five palaces, including Rosenborg Palace, to explore. Here visitors can view the Danish Crown Jewels, get a history lesson from the museum and stroll through the King's Garden. Avid shoppers will enjoy Strøget, a large pedestrian area filled with boutiques. Kayaking tours of Copenhagen's harbor offer great views of the city's skyline.
Viking remains are a highlight of Danish history, and sites like Jelling offer rune-carved boulders and burial mounds to explore. Other sites of historic interest include Helsingør's impressive Kronborg Castle and Roskilde Cathedral, which contains the graves of Danish royalty. Hiking on trails such as Grenen Skagen is a popular pastime. Visiting the beach is also an option, and Søndervig Beach is one of the country's prettiest.
Travel Tips for Denmark
Due to its North Sea location, Denmark's climate has few swings in temperature. Winter days hover in the 30s Fahrenheit and summers rise to the 60s and 70s Fahrenheit. The country's northern latitude means winter days are short and summer days often have 16 hours or more of sunlight. Many Danish celebrations take place in the summer for this reason. These celebrations include Sankthansaften, a solstice celebration on June 23rd. Bonfires and picnics are popular at this time of year. There is a famous Crafts Fair in Copenhagen on weekends in August. It features pottery, jewelry and other handmade art for sale.
Danish cuisine follows much of the Scandinavian world in offering cod, herring, pork, rye bread and cheese as staple elements of any meal. Frikadeller, or meatballs, and salt-cured salmon are popular dishes found in cold buffets. Sweets include trifles like the Apple Charlotte and custards like the Karamelrand. A mid-range-priced meal of several courses for two will cost around $85.
