Denmark is the gateway to Scandinavia and an underrated gem in northern Europe. Most visitors to Denmark begin in the enchanting capital city of Copenhagen. It’s full of picturesque canals, Renaissance castles and winding cobblestone streets of pasted houses. Danish food is also influencing kitchens around the world with the revolutionary cuisine of New Nordic food.

Denmark is home to great music festivals all over the country. You can visit the chalk cliffs of Møns Klint and the Kronborg Castle, the setting of Shakespeare’s tragedy, Hamlet. When you’re in Denmark you are never far from the sea and the maritime culture can be experienced all over the country. From the other coastal cities like Aarhus and Aalborg to the popular resort beach towns like Skagen – there’s much to explore.
