Why picking a place to go on holiday is hard

Apparently human beings get a bit stressed out if they’re presented with too many choices. 12 options is the sweet spot. So while we have a great many wonder-filled places to go, to help ease you along to a happy and stress-free choice, here are just 12 suggestions from us. (You’re welcome!)

Copenhagen

We thought it would be a good idea to start with somewhere you'd actually heard of. And what you've probably heard about Copenhagen is that it is an incredible place to be in. (It is.)

A taste of the laid-back island life

You might not know this about Denmark, but it is an island destination. Our capital, Copenhagen, is on an island. So is the home of Hans Christian Andersen. In fact, we have 444 islands and quite a lot of them have no-one on at all. Now doesn’t that sound relaxing?

Aarhus and around

Forget all those other European cities you’ve heard about. There are way too many people there. Aarhus has fewer crowds, but just as many big-hitting sights and attractions. Plus beaches, forests, festivals… It’s a wonder more people haven’t heard of it. (Hey, we’re doing our best.)

The wild and wonder-filled North of Denmark

This sand-swept region of wide open nature is like a treasure trove of unusual wonders. Buried churches? Strange mini-deserts? Cold Hawaii? (Yes, it's like real Hawaii just better because it's quite cold and that's good for you.) You'll find all of those here!

Løkken, North Jutland

This place will blow you away... (It's windy here. And amazing.)

Three popular places you shouldn't miss

What kind of destination are you looking for? If it's a pretty seaside with famous castles near a capital, then explore Zealand. For more dramatic nature and unusual historical sights, head to Jutland's West Coast. If it's the footsteps of famous Danes you're hoping to follow, Odense is for you!
