Destination Information for Denmark
The Scandinavian country of Denmark is made up of the large Jutland Peninsula, to the North of Germany, and several islands. The two main islands are Zealand and Funen, in the Østersøen Sea between Jutland and Sweden. Denmark is a modern, forward thinking country, with a well-preserved and interesting cultural heritage. The people of Denmark are extremely patriotic and proud of their Viking past. The country’s capital, Copenhagen, is on the island of Zealand, and is a large metropolitan city.
With museums, shopping, restaurants and a distinctive Danish style of architecture, this is a popular choice for an European city break and an excellent base from which to explore the Viking heritage of Denmark with several museums and burial grounds on Zealand. For visitors looking for a more relaxed Danish destination, the seaside town of Skagen is popular with locals and tourists alike. If the weather happens to be sunny, the long stretches of white sandy beaches are definitely the place to be!
Denmark is famous for its many amusement parks, including Tivoli in Copenhagen, said to be a major source of inspiration for Disneyland. Also in the city, Dyrehavsbakken is the world’s oldest operating amusement park. Fans of LEGO will love to visit the first ever Legoland in Billund, and there are several other major parks to keep visitors of all ages entertained whatever the weather.
