Denmark is a Scandinavian country that is a part of the European Union. With the tag of the world’s most liveable city attributed to its capital, Copenhagen, Denmark has many wonders to offer a visitor. Make sure that your itinerary planner includes this one on your travels!
Copenhagen Canal Tour
What better way to see the city than this 1-hour canal tour that takes you to around to see the city’s largest attractions – including the Old Stock Exchange, the Little Mermaid Statue, and the Copenhagen Opera House. You can seat yourself in the lower saloon of the boat while listening to the on-board guide describe the various sights of the city. The Church of Our Saviour with its spire and the Amalienborg Castle, which has been the seat of Danish royal family since the 18th century, are some other sites you can catch on this tour.
Denmark’s oldest settlement is a quaint town with cobblestone streets filled with rich history. A lazy river that flows through the town and water meadows add to the old school charm. With sights such as the Ribe Kunstmuseum with its massive art collection, the VikingeCenter – which is an open-air museum that houses several interesting reconstructions of buildings and life in Viking times – and the Riverfront area are just a few things to see in the small town.
Who hasn’t played with Legos in their childhood? With life-size Lego models, rides, and themed attractions, Legoland is Denmark’s most visited tourist attraction apart from Copenhagen. Spend a day here strolling through Mini Land, and seeing small scale models of Amsterdam, the Kennedy Space Centre and a Scottish castle. The park is divided into many themed areas, with a Wild West theme, medieval castles, a Pirate Land and many more. Found 1 km north of Billund, Legoland can’t be missed an entry in your Denmark itinerary planner!
10 km south of Aarhus in Demark, the Moesgård Museum and the area’s natural attractions are the main crowd-pleaser in this area. An open-air museum that displays different times in Denmark’s past, it consists of reconstructed buildings that lead to the beach and shores. The Prehistoric Trackway, Oldtidsstien is a walking trail that leads across the field of wildflowers from behind the museum. Walk past the sheep grazing the lush fields to the sandy beach of Moesgård Strand. Be sure to pick up a trail map and museum map so you cover everything the area has to offer.
The round church of Nylars Rundkirke was built in 1150, in the Rønne area. Painted with breath-taking frescos from the 13th century, it depicts scenes of Adam and Eve’s banishment from the Garden of Eden. The top of the church is a watchman’s gallery, which was used as a defence outlook post in medieval times. The front door of the church is flanked by two rune stones (of the 40 in Bornholm) that date back to the Viking era. A cycle path between Åkirkeby and Rønne passes by the church, letting you cycle your way through the charming architecture.
