An Ultimate Denmark Travel Guide
People of Denmark know exactly how to enjoy life. And, surprisingly they are different from the people of other countries in a good way. They don’t believe in showing off their big cars and houses, instead, they socialize a lot. I being a tourist was able to feel the warm and welcoming nature of Danes. Though Denmark is a bit expensive, so there’s a need to keep a check on spending for that extended stay.
I don’t know what, but there is something about the European landscape, architect, and culture that I always feel fascinated towards them. The good thing about the country is that each and every destination of this place is picture perfect, I also enjoy visiting towns with unpronounceable names.
Another advantage is that the place is totally bike friendly, you just need to rent a bike and you can explore the cities on your own. It’s a total breeze to navigate around different cities, because of the simple and user-friendly infrastructure.
Denmark is also a paradise of castles. One can witness the true royalty and charm of Danish architecture in these beautiful castles. Nature has also scattered its beauty immensely, beautiful beaches and islands of Denmark can turn any regular day into a perfect one.
Denmark has so much to offer, you just have to be on your feet all day to explore it, so whenever you make a plan to visit this beautiful country, make sure to carry comfortable boots for walking for winters or a pair of sneakers for summers. Now take a look at the top tourist destinations of Denmark.
Top tourist destinations of Denmark
By being here, you can be part of some great yearly festivals such as Copenhagen Summer Festival, Cultural Harbour Festival, and Food festival etc. These festivals make you experience the true vibe of the city, so it’s better to check their dates in advance before making a visit.
When I visited Copenhagen, I booked the festival tickets in advance and it was a show filled with some amazing local talent, truly a must see.
2. Tivoli Garden
For all the visitors, I recommend coming here an hour or two before it gets dark to enjoy Tivoli with and without lights, as the place looks really amazing with lights. Budget travelers take a note that you may find food a bit expensive in restaurants, so it’s better to have your meal before coming here.
3. Bornholm Island
I also visited some museums in Bornholm, but believe me one can enjoy the best of Bornholm only by cycling through islands beautiful paths.
4. Christiansborg Palace, Copenhagen
It is a nice place to explore, it gives a taste of the royal Denmark, the tickets are also easily available and worth visiting. Great scenery and architecture will also let to take lots of pictures.
5. Fur Island
Its total fun to rent a bike and roam around in the city, this city also offers some good eating options at the roadside, an awesome street food I must say. Also, this is the best way to explore Aarhus.
8. The Blue Planet
9. Kujatta, Greenland
These were some of the major attractions of Denmark, though the country has some other beautiful attractions as well, I would recommend every traveler not to miss the places listed above.
