Denmark Destination Guide and Tours
The word ‘Denmark’ is first recorded on the famous Jelling Stones, dating from the 10th century. This was the age of the Vikings, when fleets of ships attacked and plundered towns, churches and monasteries throughout Western Europe and sailed as far away as Constantinople. Today though, Denmark is very different from its historical past. Although only small in size, it’s handsomely endowed with wonderful rural landscapes and elegant cities. The Danes themselves also punch well above their weight when it comes to artistic culture, a commitment to conservation, and an open-minded and laid-back attitude to life. All this making Denmark the perfect place to visit.
Follow in the footsteps of the Vikings, as you uncover the innovative spirit, natural beauty and rich culture of Scandinavia. You’ll learn about its nautical heritage during a private canal cruise in colourful Gothenburg, appreciate cutting-edge architecture in pristine cities such as Copenhagen and stand in awe of deep and magnificent fjords. This legendary journey beautifully blends bold tales of the past with slick contemporary design and outstanding natural gems.
For rich history and abounding culture, Denmark’s charismatic capital of Copenhagen is the place to be. Wander through the city’s historic centre to the 17th century Stock Exchange, Christianborg Palace, cathedral and 19th century Theatre Royal. Around the magnificent Amalienborg Palace is an elegant quarter of 18th century buildings that should not be missed. If you like fairy-tales about kings and queens and spooky ghost stories - a visit to the Danish castle is just for you.
Scandinavians like to make the most of their long summer evenings. Join them in Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens for a wonderful and romantic evening, experience a ‘real’ Valhalla dinner, or just watch the sun set over the western sea. Alternatively, make for the 17th century waterfront, canal and entertainment district of Nyhavn, packed with partying people, restaurants, and bars.
Danish Design is famous the world over, and all over the country you will find a wide array of articles by Danish designers. Porcelain, glass, jewellery and hi-fi equipment are some of the items that have helped to put Denmark’s name on the map. Visit Copenhagen’s Strøget, is the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe and is packed with cool shops, cosy cafes, historic monuments and stylish Scandinavians.
