Check Denmark Out

Welcome to the next country on our spree of Nordic tourist destinations. We’re going to be looking up a nice country that you’ve definitely heard about- Denmark. While you’ve probably never even considered this country a probable place for your vacation, there’s still enough to make you have quite some fun and enjoy yourself. This site may not be as steeped in history as some of the other Nordic countries, but you’ll still find something to take home and talk about for the next couple of months. While we have made the point that Denmark is not totally your classical historical go-to site, there are still a few blasts from the past to thrill you. So let’s get cracking and convince you to book that ticket to Denmark.

  • Oresund Bridge: Don’t mind the fact that the first feature we’re talking about is man-made, but you’re really going to love this. The Oresund Bridge is a beautiful piece of engineering genius that is as aesthetically appealing as it is practically useful. This bridge connects the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen with the city of Malmo in Sweden across the Oresund Strait. Either you’re crossing the bridge in a car, or you’re just seeing it from above while flying into Copenhagen, it’s an absolute beauty to behold and you’ll be glad you got the chance.
  • Amusement Parks: It appears the Danes love to have their fun. From the old ones to the pretty recent additions, Denmark has a fair share of amusement parks to keep you thrilled. You would definitely love to visit the Bakken (this is a shortened form, Dyrehavsbakken is definitely not very easy to pronounce for a tourist). Well, here’s where it gets exciting, Bakken is the oldest amusement park in the world. Wouldn’t you love to hang out at the root of the concept of amusement parks? There are also a few other fun parks to check out like the Djurs Sommerland and the Tivoli gardens among others.
  • Museums: Denmark also has a couple of connection points to their past; portals of insight into their rich history. There’s the Vikingeskibsmuseet which is a Viking Ship Museum located in Roskilde, you can learn a little more here about the Viking history. There’s also the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art which boasts some very beautiful and interesting collections. Don’t forget that this museum is closed on Mondays, so you can factor that into your tour plans. You could be lucky and be in the museum during any of the numerous exhibitions that are often held there during the year.
  • Towers, Castles, and Palaces: Remember Hamlet by Shakespeare? Well, it was set in the Kronborg Castle which is located where? You guessed right, Denmark! Of course it has been rightly recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, and you should definitely check this place out. Other remarkable buildings include the picturesque Egeskov castle in Kvarnstrup, the Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen, and The Round Tower also in Copenhagen among others.

Denmark is a nice place to vacation, we hope you think so too.
