Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. Add Greenland and the Faroe Islands and you have the Kingdom of Denmark.

Danes are known for being hip and modern, while they can look back on a rich and noteworthy history. What makes traveling to Denmark especially attractive: you can be there within six hours by car! It is also a perfect place to tour through Scandinavia to start.
Fishing villages and sandy beaches
Denmark is a fishing country par excellence, with many authentic fishing villages. The countless islands – more than 500 in total – are part of Denmark's unique coastline. There are also more than enough sandy beaches where you can relax. The peace and space that you will find on the islands of Møn, Zealand and Lolland-Falster will not be easily encountered anywhere else in Europe. Would you like to see more of the islands and marvel at the beautiful Viking history? Then island hopping in Denmark is the perfect solution. Just visit an island and hop, onward! In Roskilde, don't forget to visit the fjord of the same name. Complete with original Viking ships!
Copenhagen is of course the Danish highlight when it comes to cities. A city with a pleasant atmosphere, beautiful city center and fashionable shops. Denmark also offers plenty of nice trips. Consider, for example, the nature reserves of Trelleborg and Frederiksdal. Of course, a trip to Legoland is a must-see for travelers traveling with children!
