City of Beautiful Towers

Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen has morphed into the cultural, political, and economic powerhouse of the country.
Step out of the city life by going to Fuglereservat Vaserne and Jaegerborg Dyrehave. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Nyhavn and Rosenborg Castle. When in Copenhagen, make a side trip to see Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerod, approximately Hillerod away. There's still lots to do: join in the after-dark buzz at National Gallery of Denmark, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Denmark, steep yourself in history at Visit Carlsberg Brand Store, and admire the masterpieces at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek.

Denmark travel guide

4.2
Known for its old-fashioned charm, Denmark often is referenced as a fairy-tale setting by visitors and locals alike. With quaint cobblestone streets leading the way to art galleries, museums, and historical sights, plus a modern and easily accessible public transportation system, Denmark seamlessly blends its rich history with modern advancements. Be inspired by the works of local legends, including the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, the symphonies of Carli Nielsen, and the astronomy work of Tycho Brahe, then play a bit at amusement parks like Legoland. Visitors often find themselves developing "hygge," the untranslatable Danish trait that encapsulates a sense of coziness and contentment, which is thought to have a great deal of influence on Denmark's standing as one of the happiest nations on the planet.
