Denmark's wild and beautiful national parks

Thought Denmark was too small to have national parks? Think again! Allow us to introduce Denmark’s best forests, countryside and seaside right here: our five beautiful and very different national parks, along with our UNESCO Global Geoparks.

Royal North Zealand National Park

Denmark’s newest national park is the second largest national park in Denmark, extending north of Copenhagen over ​​26,250 hectares. Within it you can find Gribskov forest and Denmark’s second largest lake, Esrum Sø, as well as two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Kronborg Castle in Elsinore and the Parforce hunting landscape in Store Dyrehave and Gribskov. 

Our UNESCO Global Geoparks

UNESCO Global Geoparks are unique landscapes where the landscape and geography is internationally significant, and the space is managed in a sustainable way, with education and protection at its heart. Basically, they are super special places - there are only 169 in the entire world - and Denmark is home to these beauties.
