Denmark at a Glance

It is exciting to explore Denmark whether you hit the streets on your bicycle, wander through the countryside on foot, or view the coastline from the window of your car.

Hit the city streets in Copenhagen for the biggest concentration of Michlin starred restaurants in Scandinavia. The dining options are limitless from white table clothes all the way to a rickety table in front of a cafe. Try seafood, Danish sweets, locally sourced meals, forager meals and haute cuisine. When you can't eat any more, take cobblestone streets to get to museums, theaters, shopping and nightlife. 

For a more intimate look at Denmark, head to Ribe, Denmarks oldest medieval town. Half-timbered houses lean inward towards you and storks line the roof of the city hall. Sample chocolate, watch the cows and rent a bike for some countryside riding.

When in Denmark, don't forget to learn about the Vikings. Visit museums to see Viking helmets, boats and treasure. Look out to the countryside to find their ruins. Hike, bike, explore Denmark, and when you are tired, head to the beach for a rest.
