In Denmark, history comes to life right before your eyes – and it’s easy and fun to take part as it unfolds. Let your clients visit some of the world’s biggest and oldest open-air museums in Copenhagen and Aarhus. Let them learn what it was like to be a true Viking from the many Viking museums or send them off to feel the presence of ancient history in medieval towns in the provinces of the country.
With a thousand years of royal history, Denmark is home to castles, palaces, churches and remarkable Viking monuments, inviting visitors to experience the greatness of ancient times.
Diamonds are forever
With help from our Travel Trade inspirational itineraries, you can easily plan a royal tour of Copenhagen. Let your clients feast their eyes on the crown jewels at Rosenborg Castle before going on a guided tour of Amalienborg Castle to see the changing of the guards every day at noon. If they are lucky, visitors might even get a glimpse of the Danish crown prince couple and their four children, cycling through the streets of Copenhagen on iconic Christiania Bikes.
Not far from Copenhagen, in Elsinore, Kronborg Castle – also known as “Hamlet’s castle” – is one of Northern Europe’s most important Renaissance castles. Kronborg Castle is also a magnificent UNESCO world heritage site.
Castles and manor houses
Who wouldn’t want to prance like a princess or make it like a monarch by exploring one of Denmark’s many impressive castles and manor houses? Indulge your clients’ fantasies of the high life with some unique insights into the contemporary lives of the Danish royal family. For instance, plan a visit to Kokkedal Castle just north of Copenhagen, Hindsgavl Castle on Funen and Liselund New Castle on Moen, or book a weekend at Kragerup Manor on Zealand or Store Restrup Manor close to Nibe in Jutland.
