It’s no wonder why the 5.5 million Danes who live in this fabulous area of Scandinavia have been voted the happiest people in the world. This flat yet stunning country boasts a wealth of history, a rich and artistic culture, wonderful rural landscapes, elegant cities, and a firm commitment to conservation, all crowned with an open-minded and laid-back attitude to life – making Denmark the perfect place for a fascinating and free-spirited retreat.
Denmark’s history is characterised strongly by the Viking Age, when Norwegian Vikings inhabited the country and conquered the Jutland peninsula, spurring the first Danish monarch. The Viking Age has left its legacy in Denmark, with Viking edifices, monuments and museums attesting to this fascinating part of history. Some former strongholds of the country include Trelleborg in West Zealand and Fyrkat near Hobro in Jutland. The Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde features some truly remarkable Viking shipwrecks that prove the craftsmanship of the Vikings.
For more rich history and abounding culture, visit Denmark’s charismatic capital of Copenhagen. Wander through the city’s historic centre and you’ll see 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. Keen photographers and those seeking a bit of childhood nostalgia should join the crowds at the Little Mermaid statue. Shoppers can delight in Strøget, the world’s longest pedestrianised street, and those with an appetite for adventure can find endless entertainment in the Tivoli Gardens amusement park.
There are also other cities in Denmark worthy of your admiration, including Odense, the birthplace of beloved fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen. Here, you can soak in some art and culture at the galleries or enjoy the outdoor splendour of the city’s gardens and parks. In Aalborg, you’ll be greeted with a charming mix of old and new – cutting-edge modern architecture contrasts starkly with fine examples of Renaissance architecture.
