Denmark Travel Guide

by our Denmark expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryThe smallest of the Nordic countries, Denmark is probably the friendliest too. They even have a special word, ‘hygge’, that sounds like ‘hug’ and describes a warm, relaxed, atmosphere with friends – readily extended to visitors. A monarchy that goes back to the intriguingly named Gorm the Old, Denmark combines traditions such as Hamlet’s Elsinore, with being at the forefront of Modernist design (not forgetting the original Legoland). So Odense turns out to be the birthplace of both Hans Christian Andersen and composer Carl Nielsen. The climate produces surprisingly warm, cloudless summers – there are over 200 ‘Blue Flag’ quality beaches. Copenhagen really is ‘wonderful’; a major seaport for centuries, it’s dotted with islands and crossed by canals - making a boat tour a great way to sight-see. (Another is the coin-in-slot-deposit free bike system.) Tivoli Gardens were the original pleasure gardens and still delight with thrilling rides and special events, especially a marvellous Christmas market. The city, has a superb pedestrianised shopping area, a cosmopolitan selection of restaurants and, of course, the Little Mermaid, star of a million postcards.
