On the tracks of the Vikings
There is much to discover in the land of the Vikings. For example, the magnificent castles and royal gardens in Copenhagen and North Zealand, which tell the story of one of the oldest monarchies in the world. Not so easy to find is the little mermaid. This pretty little landmark welcomes all travellers to the port of the capital, which has repeatedly been voted "the most livable city in the world".
Denmark's sporty side
But Denmark doesn't just want to be explored culturally, it also wants to be sporty! And it offers a wide range of options for this, both on land and on water. Wide hilly landscapes and over 7000 km of coastline, swamps, forests and rivers invite you to extensive exploration tours, which are easy to find thanks to detailed cycling and hiking signs.
Windsurfers in North Jutland, the northwest of Denmark, on the other hand, enjoy the strongest wind in Europe. Best conditions in cities like Klitmøller - also called "Cold Hawaii". Sailing enthusiasts, who also have a large selection of coasts, islands and bays in Denmark, often come to the Isefjord in the northwest of Zealand. From there it is worthwhile to visit the town of Roskilde, which exhibits the historical remains of five Viking ships found in the fjord and presents one of the largest music festivals every year.
