Say hej to Denmark's top tourist attractions!

We all know the best thing about travelling can often be the unexpected things you see along the way. The people and the discoveries you make all by yourself. But we also know that we're all human. And sometimes you just want to marvel at the big, the bold and the beautiful classics. So have a look at ours.

Copenhagen Classics

These really are the most-visited attractions in the capital of Denmark. Three of Copenhagen's beloved and most-famous attractions that we all just can't get enough of.

A 1,000-year-old Viking Kingdom

Royal families don't get much older than this. Queen Margrethe II is descended from Viking kings, who ruled Denmark a thousand years ago. When you're here, you can explore everything the Vikings left behind and maybe even bump into our current royal family.

Everyone's welcome!

Denmark was the first country in the world to legally recognise same-sex couples, and we're proud of our traditions of tolerance, equality and respect.

Our biggest natural attractions

Size matters. So we've picked Denmark's top three biggest and most-dramatic natural attractions to start with. Giant disappearing lighthouses. Rugged white cliffs. And, you might be surprised to hear, some of the biggest beaches in Europe!

How Denmark invented fun

OK, we didn't actually invent fun. But now you're reading this...we are responsible for some enormous contributions to the world of play and make-believe. Can you guess what they are?

Destination Spotlight: Zealand and the Danish Riviera

With names like The Danish Riviera and The Cold Caribbean, you can probably guess that Zealand is the kind of island where Danes go to relax and unwind. And the good news? Copenhagen is actually on it anyway! So, what are you waiting for? Check out our top attractions on Zealand!

We'll just squeeze a few more famous attractions before you go...
