It’s not a destination that can be done justice with only one visit, as it’s a varied country with innumerable sights to see.
Denmark may not be a large country but it has more than made up for it with varied scenery and landscape. There are some places in the country that make you feel like you’re in a completely different time and place – like migrating dunes or rugged coasts from where the Vikings of old used to sail out of. Denmark’s islands only add to the charm, and the country’s beauty only reminds us of how gorgeous nature can be.
Denmark’s cuisine traces its origins to the food its peasants used to eat in ages past. Today that food has transformed into some of the world’s most sought-after recipes, making it one of the most popular cuisines in Europe. With unique dishes like the tarteletter, or the peculiar breakfast dish of Danish porridge, the cuisine of Denmark has left its mark on the world. Meat and potatoes are a mainstay in the kitchen, and after the gastronomic renaissance in the past few decades, Danish cuisine won’t be forgotten anytime soon.
For such a cold place to live – at least compared to many other countries in the world – Denmark sure has a warm and cosy feel to it. That’s because its people are some of the warmest and most welcoming in all of Europe, and their everyday interactions prove that. Communicative, progressive, Danes don’t forget tradition but are not afraid of change. One of the greenest cultures in the world, bicycles are an everyday thing, and politeness is something that every Dane appreciates. The culture of Denmark is arguably the envy of the world.
Because of its unique position between the Baltic and the North Sea, Denmark is a beautiful place filled with such varied scenery that can put other countries to shame. Locations such as Mols Bjerge National Park which is a perfect destination for hiking, or Jaegersborg Deer Park near Copenhagen, you can spend so much time exploring Denmark’s nature and still not see everything it has to offer. And what’s great is that everything is perfectly maintained – there are numerous hiking trails, roads that lead to camping areas, forests, parks, everything that a nature lover could ask for.
