There is so much more to Denmark outside the Capital of Copenhagen

Come to Copenhagen, she said. And you should. But don’t dismiss the rest of Denmark on your next adventure. This small Scandinavian country has so much more on offer. From darling villages in idyllic landscapes to stunning coastlines with wide sandy beaches, Denmark affords something fantastisk for everyone. That’s Danish for fantastic.

There are castles and hamlets and even Hamlet’s castle. Stroll through some of the world’s best art museums and take in unique history experiences. Learn of royals who still rule and their striking Viking roots. Soak up midsummer sun along the brilliant blue Baltic Sea in a Danish summer house of your own. Slurp up some oysters plucked straight from the sea or sample the fish from a local smokehouse.

Here, you are never more than 32 miles (52 kilometers) from the sea. So bring your swimsuit come summer. Or brace yourself for winter bathing come winter. Pop on a ferry to explore one of the 444 Danish islands that sit offshore – gorgeous getaways chock full of charm and lingering daylight come midsummer. But even in the sometimes bleak midwinter, there is hygge to be had in Denmark. Come see for yourself.
