Ninna's tips for getting to know Denmark

Join our travel trade representative in the USA, Ninna Seerup, as she gives you a personal tour of her top places to visit in Denmark. 

My name is Ninna and I am from the northern part of Denmark, more precisely Aalborg in North Jutland. 

For the US traveler I will say there is still a lot of Denmark to discover. Denmark has short travel distances, and you can easily explore both the coast and the bigger cities in one vacation. This is something that remains unknow for a lot of people.

Beautiful Aalborg

My home region remains one of my favorite spots in Denmark. Aalborg is beautiful with it’s placement right by the fjord and with it’s combination of half-timbered houses on cobbled streets and contemporary architecture such as the Utzon Center and Kunsten Museum of Modern Art. A hidden gem is the west part of the city with it’s Marina right by the fjord. Here you can easily strike up conversation with the locals – who will most likely be strolling around with a waffle-ice cream in their hands. A great place to experience the Danish "hygge". 

Odense

Odense, home of Hans Christian Andersen

Another great daytrip is to take the train from Copenhagen to Odense, the birthplace of fairytale writer H.C. Andersen. The train time is only 1 h 20 minutes from Copenhagen. The city of Odense is dotted with the most charming half-timbered houses and cobbled stone streets I’ve seen. Make sure to visit the small craft-men shops. I’ve brought friends from the U.S. there and they loved it.
