Walk through Danish history and the homes of the Danish Royal Family, past and present, at these stunning castles in Denmark. You can visit both homes of Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik, the popular royal couple who split their time between Amalienborg Palace in Copenhagen and Fredensborg Palace in North Zealand. Get up close to the Danish crown jewels at the iconic Rosenborg Castle or walk in the rose gardens of Queen Margrethe’s residence in Aarhus, Marselisborg.
If you're looking for things to do in Copenhagen and have time to go a little further afield, then head north along the Danish Riviera of North Zealand. It's the perfect place to venture out on day trips from Copenhagen, or to extend your holiday with a stay in North Zealand's hotels, inns or holiday homes.
The trip can be started at any point, but this guide takes Camping Møns Klint (1) as its starting point. The camp site is located in beautiful natural surroundings at the edge of Klinteskoven surrounded by high-lying lakes and pastures only 1.5 km from the Cliffs of Møn. The camp site offers bicycle hire, café and toilets.
Danish nature is spectacular in the autumn months. The leaves turn a golden yellow and everything in nature gets an autumnal hue. Why not go hiking in beautiful and dramatic countryside? Endless sand dunes, heathland and cliff walks; Denmark is at its bracing best in the autumn. Head out with this guide to things to do outdoors in Denmark this autumn.
