UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Denmark

Ankor Wat, the Great Wall or the pyramids are impressive, no question. But they are also far away and often overcrowded. Denmark has seven UNESCO World Heritage sites and the great thing is that you can go on a true UNESCO hunt because in Denmark everything is always close by.

Par force hunting landscape in North Zealand

Just north of Copenhagen, you'll find the former royal hunting grounds where King Christian V and his court could practice hunting par force during the late 17th century. Unesco notes the forest areas of Store Dyrehave, Gribskov, and Jægersborg serve as a unique example of "a designed landscape", including well-preserved hunting lanes laid out in a grid pattern, as well as numbered stone posts and hunting lodges such as the Hermitage.
