Denmark trip

Denmark trip

Going on a Denmark trip will have you visiting one of the happiest countries on the planet, if you’re to believe those contentment surveys that come out every couple of years. The country’s happiness level might be in part because despite the weather it has some of the best quality of life anywhere, and also the Danes tend to shop and dine at some of the most exciting places in Europe, so they’re quite well-fed as well.

Copenhagen’s restaurants for instance have more Michelin stars than any other Scandinavian city , and the entire country would probably have more if the inspectors from Michelin would trouble themselves to leave the capital and head for Aalborg or Arhus.

Beyond the capital, the country has a mix of lively towns such as Ribe and Odense, plus rural countryside, medieval churches, Renaissance castles and tidy 18th century villages. To this you add the Neolithic dolmen, preserved 2000-year-old ‘bog people’ and obviously some impressive Viking ruins and you barely start to scratch the wet surface of what Denmark has to offer.

Centuries on from the Viking era, the country still remains very much a maritime nation, bordered by the Baltic and the North Sea. There’s no place in the country that’s more than an hour’s drive from its rather lovely seashore, much of it being lined with splendid white-sand beaches.

Strolling pretty much through any city of the country, you’ll experience some very harmonious civic spaces, the capital for instance features some ornate history and bold modern lines and a faultless transport system combined with the locals’ courtesy and sense of humor.

Those looking into the place for a fun time can schedule their trips to coincide with one of the several parades and festivals that the country offers, not to mention the massive Roskilde festival which no metal fan should go without seeing.
