Aarhus — 6 nights

Located on the sea, Aarhus blends a world city with a small-town feel. Home to a young population, the city has a reputation for producing internationally known pop and rock musicians.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Den Gamle By and LEGO House. Venture out of the city with trips to Billund (LEGOLAND Billund & Teddy Bear Art Museum). The adventure continues: get curious at Botanical Garden and the Greenhouses, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Aarhus Domkirke, get to know the fascinating history of Mollestien, and get a new perspective on nature at Naturhistorisk Museum.

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.
