Say hej to Denmark's highlights!

A trip to Denmark isn't just about seeing a few sights and ticking them off your list. Our wonders are everywhere; you can stumble across them no matter which part of Denmark you're in. But it's always helpful to be nudged in the right direction. So put down the bucket list as we welcome you, Explorists, to the land of everyday wonder. Check out some of our highlights here.

Copenhagen Classics

These really are the most-visited places in the capital of Denmark. Three of Copenhagen's most beloved and famous highlights that we all 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...
