A Denmark Cruise will take you a fabled land, home to the world’s oldest monarchy that is a town of fairytales, Vikings and modern day sophistication. Copenhagen is pedestrianised in many parts so do what the locals do and jump on a free bike and pedal leisurely around the city taking in all the medieval sites. Stroget shoppng Street is one of the longest in Europe. Amalienborg Palace is one of the best Rococco pieces of architecture in Scandinavia. Home to 15 Michelin starred restaurants Denmark is a culinary capital of royal and epic proportions.
Or perhaps Skagen is your treat. Grab your paint brushes and sketch books. This is an old Danish favourite. Rich in art and culture Skagen Museum hosts over 1,800 works of art. It is at this famous beach that the Skagerak Sea and the Kattegat Seat, meet at Grenen providing a chiaroscuro of light and colour unique to the area. Fresh seafood can be bought daily off the harbour, and the place is a hive of activity amongst holidaymakers in summer.
And then there is Fredericia on the eastern side of Jutland. Fredericia dates back to 1650 and is a major military home to the country’s Royal Signals Regiment. Rent a car and take a drive to Egeskov Castle or Hans Christian Andersen’s Museum. Denmark is the home of Lego and Legoland is a must for the kids.
