It’s about more than ticking sights off a list, you know!

We have got big, famous sights (and they’re over on our highlights page). But wait! Before you click there… If you come to Denmark and get to know our quirks and customs, our food, our neighbourhoods, then a little of the wonder of our everyday might just rub off on you. And isn’t that what travel is all about? We think so!

How to find wonder in the things you see

It might happen while you're cycling with Danes in Copenhagen for the first time. Or watching the black sun murmurations over the Wadden Sea National Park. As a weird and wonderful place to start on your journey to find wonder, try these unique and unusual things to do in Denmark!

Discover the joy of going green

In Denmark, green means fun. It's about kayaking on the water. Eating the best local food. Exploring hidden places. And quite a lot about trolls, too...

When are you thinking about coming?

With each season in Denmark comes a unique set of experiences to try. And remember, we Danes believe there's no such thing as bad weather. Just bad clothing choices.

Danes heart design!

From iconic buildings to world-famous furniture, seeing the way design is blended into Danish life is a good way to re-focus on the simplicity and beauty of daily life. (In other words, come and stare at pretty things.)
