Home to the happiest people on earth, strolling through the streets of its cool capital Copenhagen it is easy to see why.
MUST-DO DENMARK EXPERIENCES
Cutting edge designer stores next to vintage hipster bars, it is also food heaven with Michelin-starred restaurants and organic cafes where the clean lines of the interiors match the art on the plate – one thing is certain, the city has come a long way from its origin as a fishing village in the 10th Century.
With nine Lego theme parks for kids, Hans Christian Anderson sculptures and cut-outs, the twinkling lights of Tivoli Gardens – it is the gateway of Scandinavia from Europe.
Pedal away from the city and you will find a world of hip little towns, crayon box coloured harbours and ports and for those seeking outdoor escapes – plunge into cold-water lakes, walk along sandy shores, and take a bike, follow the lanes and criss cross the country.
