Denmark is a land where fairy tales come to life, Intertwining history with contemporary innovation. My travel guides to Denmark will help you uncover the best of what this Scandinavian gem has to offer.

The Enchanting Capital: Copenhagen

My journey through Denmark began in Copenhagen, the country’s bustling capital. This city is bursting with the arts, mixing historical landmarks and modern attractions. You can wander through the narrow, cobbled streets of the medieval city centre and Copenhagen’s fantastic good. I loved visiting the iconic Little Mermaid statue, and stopping for coffee in the Glyptotek Winter Garden. Don’t miss a visit to Tivoli Gardens, one of the world’s oldest amusement parks, where the blend of nostalgic rides and lush gardens creates a magical atmosphere.

During my stay in Copenhagen, I stayed at the Mayfair hotel which is a short walk away from the Central Station. I chose it because of its proximity to the train station, and it ended up being perfect for me. I ended up checked in my hotel and ready to explore in just over an hour of landing in Copenhagen. And in the evenings I was so close to Tivoli Park I could enjoy the rides or go to the Food Market for dinner before retiring to my room and recharging for the next day. 

The Historic Heart: Aarhus

Denmark’s second-largest city, Aarhus, is a must-visit for history buffs and culture enthusiasts. Known as the “City of Smiles,” Aarhus boasts a rich Viking heritage and a dynamic cultural scene. Explore the ARoS Aarhus Art Museum, renowned for its rainbow panorama, and stroll through the charming Latin Quarter filled with boutique shops and cosy cafés. The open-air museum, Den Gamle By, offers a unique glimpse into Danish life over the centuries. Drawing in history lovers from all over the world to this city.

Hygge: The Danish Art of Coziness

No visit to Denmark is complete without embracing the concept of “hygge.” This uniquely Danish term encapsulates the feeling of cosiness, comfort, and well-being. Often enjoyed with good food, warm drinks, and the company of loved ones. Experience hygge firsthand in Denmark’s many inviting cafés, charming bed and breakfasts, and during winter months, at the traditional Christmas markets filled with twinkling lights and festive treats. Travel is all about learning and experiencing new cultures. Why take away souvenirs that will sit on a shelf for years, when you can take away the essence of Hygge and bring that into your everyday life.
