Denmark’s beaches and coastline, river and sheltered inlet, forested backdrop and hinterland have attracted a varied, creative and environmentally aware community. Farmers, ferals, fishers and families all mingle during the town’s four market days each year.
The country offers historic neighborhoods, fairytale castles, cruises among archipelagos, food markets and local specialty products, Art Nouveau buildings, open-air museums, and Jewish history.
It is also a haven for shoppers: handicrafts and design products, such as glass, porcelain, textiles, jewelry, housewares and furniture.
Follow the Vikings
Their legacy lives on in Denmark. Visit the National museum in Copenhagen, which displays burial grounds of the Viking period, along with the largest and richest hordes of treasure, including relics from the « Silver Age. » Explore the Viking Ship Museum, containing five vessels found in a fjord nearby.
Rediscover H. C. Andersen
He is the symbol of Denmark itself. Visit his small half-timbered house on Munkemøllestræde, where he lived from 1807 to 1817. You can also visit H. C. Andersen’s Hus, where much of his memorabilia is stored (including his walking stick and top hat), and take a few moments to listen to his tales on tape.
