Why Visit Denmark
In Denmark you will find that the distances are short – and this makes it possible to combine all the atmosphere of buzzing city life with the relaxation of the beautiful Danish countryside.

Clean beaches and green forests are rarely more than a half hour’s drive away. And your children can roam freely and safely, while you explore all the many cultural and artistic offerings in store.

The Danes are generally well educated, well informed, yet at the same time enjoy a distinctly Danish lack of formality. This gives the Danes a relaxed and often humorous attitude to authorities and life itself.

Denmark is a member of the European Union. The proximity of Germany has traditionally orientated the country south in an economic and political sense, but close co-operation with Sweden, Norway, Finland and Iceland, with which Denmark enjoys a passport union, also ties Denmark to the North.

Denmark is well provided with traffic systems. The road network is good everywhere in the country; railways and air links provide quick transport, and the islands are connected by ferries and a large number of bridges. Kastrup near Copenhagen is the largest international airport in the country and is at the same time a crossroads for air traffic to and from the other Scandinavian countries.

Special Interest:
Copenhagen - # The National Museum of Denmark, the world famous Tivoli Gardens, Viking Ship Museum and the Rosenborg Castle are some of the most crucial places of interest in Denmark.

Odense - Odense is one of the most famous industrial areas in Denmark and houses several small and large art galleries and museums which contain great importance in displaying the historical development of the country. The most notable place to be visited in this region is the Hans Christian Andersen Museum.

Arhus - The Arhus Cathedral is one of the most famous places to visit but in addition to this do not forget to pay a visit to the Student Quarter which is located right behind the cathedral.

The Jelling Stone - Visit the Jelling Stone. It’s often praised as Denmark’s “birth certificate”, as it was inscribed by Harald Bluetooth, who died 987AD, with the fact that he “made the Danes Christian”. Anyone who knows the history of Denmark knows that this is one of the oldest relics you can find there.

Viking fort at Trelleborg - Erected around 980AD? It is in the vicinity of Slagelse and is breathtaking to behold. The diameter of the fort is 156m, and visitors to Denmark are welcome to wander in. Check local brochures around Denmark for ticket prices and other restrictions. It’s open year round, and you can even catch festivities there during the summer.

Roskilde Cathedral - The most important national monument in all of Denmark. Since the age of Christian II, every single monarch of Denmark has been laid to rest there. It was commissioned by Kind Herald, and during the Middle Ages is become the mausoleum for the Royal House. It marks the beginning of independence and Christianity in Denmark, and simply can’t be missed.

Denmark Climate:
Denmark has a temperate climate, the mildness of which is largely conditioned by the generally westerly winds and by the fact that the country is virtually encircled by water. There is little fluctuation between day and night temperatures, but sudden changes in wind direction cause considerable day-to-day temperature changes. The mean temperature in February, the coldest month, is 0° C (32° F ), and in July, the warmest, 17° C (63° F ). Rain falls fairly evenly throughout the year, the annual average amounting to approximately 61 cm (24 in).

Danish Cuisine:
Danish cuisine features the products suited to its cool and moist northern climate: barley, potatoes, rye, beetroot, greens, berries, and mushrooms are locally grown, and dairy products are one of its specialties. Since it shares its climate and agricultural practices with the other Scandinavian countries, and some of Central and Eastern Europe, Danish cuisine has much in common with them. Nevertheless, it has its own distinguishing features, which were formed by a variety of influences during the country's long and difficult history.

Good food is an important ingredient in the Danish concept of hygge, a word that can be best translated as a "warm, fuzzy, cozy, comfortable feeling of well-being" and may be seen as analogous to the German Gemütlichkeit. While the attainment of hygge is a near-universal goal in Danish culture, hygge itself is a highly personal concept, and varies significantly according to circumstances, region, and individual family traditions. Generally speaking, however, good food, good company, wine, comfortable furniture, soft easy lighting (candle lights in particular), music, etc., all contribute to the feeling of "hygge."
