Denmark Travel Tips


At a Glance

If you’re interested in exploring Denmark, this guide will teach you everything you need to know, including the best sights and activities.

With its coastline touching both the North and Baltic seas, Denmark is unsurprisingly a country with a strong connection to water. This element of Danish spirit is reflected in its intricate geography; no matter where you are in 

Denmark, you’re never more than 50km from the sea. The water even penetrated the heart of Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital city, splitting it into multiple islands.

Nature is never far away in Denmark, thanks to the Dane’s love of green spaces and nature. Whether you’re exploring the miles of coastline or trekking through beech forests in Jutland, you’ll find plenty of opportunity to reconnect with nature. And when you need a break from all that tranquility, just relax with a Carlsberg and some Smorrebrod on the banks of Nyhavn and watch the world go by.

Best Time to Go

Before making your plans, it’s a good idea to learn about what to anticipate in each season so you’ll know what to expect when you visit Denmark. Spring is the best time to go, from May through June. The weather in Denmark follows the seasons, which may be divided into three sections:

Low Season (Oct-Apr) – In the winter, when it is cold and damp, the days are shorter. Many popular tourist attractions and a variety of outdoor attractions are shut. Big cities do, however, have Christmas decorations and ice-skating.

Mid Seasons (May-mid-Jun, mid-Aug-Sep) – The weather has been mild lately. The fewer people, the better.

High Season (mid-Jun-mid-Aug) – Although the weather is Control and higher prices, more people are out so expect crowds.

Best Things to do in Denmark

Wander Around Copenhagen

There’s something special about Copenhagen that makes it one of our favorites. Perhaps it’s because it has everything you could want in a city without feeling like one. There is nothing not to like about this city, which has a rich culture, beautiful architecture, delectable cuisine, exciting nightlife and a vibrant yet chilled daily atmosphere. It also has some of the most welcoming people in the world. And did we mention that it is one of the safest, happiest, and friendliest cities on Earth? It may sound too good to be true, but it’s actually better!

  • Copenhagen City Card – Use this city card to save money on activities and transportation, with several validity periods.
  • Hop On-Hop Off Boat Tour – We recommended this hop on-and-off boat tour because, from our point of view, it’s an excellent way to take in the sights of the city.
  • Food Tour –Consider taking a culinary tour that introduces you to Danish cuisine and its most famous dishes.
  • Segway City Tour –I love renting Segways to zip around cities. You can cover more ground this way and get personal recommendations from the guides.

Explore the Tivoli Gardens

With a prime location opposite of Copenhagen Central Station, Tivoli Gardens is the perfect place to take a trip back to your childhood. This 19th-century amusement park has something for everyone and is sure to provide an afternoon of fun.

Come to this historic amusement park for the rides, stay for the beer. Our beautiful grounds are open from April through September, so don’t miss your chance.

Visit Kronborg Castle

It’s an amazing 16th century UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is well worth the trip from Copenhagen to see this magnificent place, which is located along the coast in Helsingör. Visit the beautiful banqueting hall and royal chambers, and get a sense of why this area was chosen as the inspiration for Shakespeare’s play Hamlet by going on a tour of the grounds.

Admire the Ancient City of Roskilde

Roskilde is an excellent destination for anyone interested in Danish history. It’s also just outside of Copenhagen, so it’s not really a long journey! Roskilde Cathedral – Denmark’s most prominent building – is on one of the city’s beautiful brick-lined streets. Discover some famous sights such as the Roskilde Cathedral, which is Denmark’s capital from 960 to 1536. Take a stroll around its lovely brick-lined boulevards and discover several iconic sights including the Roskilde Cathedral, which is Denmark’s most famous monument. You may go in June to attend one of Europe’s largest music festivals, where you can enjoy one of Europe’s greatest performances live on stage every day.

Feast Your Eyes on Nyhavn

If you’re looking for a 17th-century waterfront lined with colorful and slightly slanted 18th-century townhouses, then Nyhavn is the place for you. This Quaint city is one of the most colorful in Europe and will not disappoint. Although it may be busy and more expensive than other streets, Nyhavn still deserves a visit.

This entertainment district is a must-see when you’re in Denmark. You can wander around, sit by the wooden boats with a beer, or eat at one of the restaurants.

What to eat in Denmark

Denmark has been named the happiest nation on Earth, and we believe it’s because of the outstanding cuisine! Although pricey, the cuisine you’ll eat will be of excellent quality and prepared with fresh and local ingredients.

While many dishes can be delicious no matter where you go, we believe these are the best and definitely worth trying while you’re in the area:


If you’re looking for a delicious and affordable lunch option, look no further than these open-faced sandwiches. Topped with things like raw herring or shrimp, smoked salmon, hard-boiled eggs, meat or vegetables, you’ll definitely be able to find something to your liking.


You haven’t lived until you’ve had a taste of these delicious Danish meatballs! These minced pork or beef bits of perfection are flavored with onions, eggs, milk, and bread crumbs before being pan-fried and served over potatoes with gravy and veggies. Although they may be found in many parts of Europe, the Danes know how to properly prepare them!

Stegt Flaesk

Available throughout Denmark, this is a dish you must sample when in the country. Seasoned with salt and pepper before being fried until crispy, pork bacon is served with potatoes and a parsley sauce. Delicious!


You’ll find polsevogn (hot dog stands) all over Copenhagen and other cities where they are served, which is not the most traditional Danish meal but another of the most popular. This is often eaten with a side of ketchup, mustard, fried onions, and pickles for a quick on-the-go bite.

Places to stay in Denmark

Denmark offers a wide range of affordable and luxurious lodgings, from hostels to five-star hotels. Budgeting for your stay might be difficult because the prices in Denmark are high, ranging from hostel dorms to budget hotels to mid-range hotels.

Camping at a campground is one of the most affordable ways to stay. Outside of the cities, hotels or shared apartments on Airbnb are still options, with camping being the cheapest. A Camping Key Europe card is required to camp at campsites, which costs about $17 in Denmark.
