Day Trips from Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a doorway into Denmark, a jump-off point for the entire kingdom. Within three hours of Denmark's capital city is a wealth of royal castles and national parks, including Denmark's newest UNESCO World Heritage Site, The Wadden Sea National Park. Use historic cities such as Aarhus or Ribe, Denmark's oldest town, as memorable bases for exploring the very best of Denmark's sights and attractions.
