ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

Denmark is a proud land of Viking history and long held traditions of royalty.

Tourism is a strong industry here as visitors from around the world return time and again to explore its ancient ruins and castles and to enjoy cultural festivals throughout the year.

In addition, Copenhagen and fabulous Tivoli Gardens, Legoland (for kids of all ages), Bornholm Island and the country's many islands, are popular attractions.

Not to be missed is Denmark's second largest city, Arhus, the Jutland seaside town of Ebeltoft, as well as the castle and picturesque villages on Funen Island, the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen.

  • Times to Travel: Denmark is very manageable at anytime of the year. High temperatures in summer reach into the low 70's, with cooler mornings. Winter brings much colder days, but temperatures seldom fall below the low 30's.

    Denmark's geographical position affects winter daylight hours, as the sun rises by 8 AM, and sets no later than 4 PM. Summer days are longer as sunrise occurs before 4 AM, with sunset near 10 PM.

    Even though crowds are heavy and attraction lines long, most travelers seem to agree that June through August are the best months to visit.

  • NOTE: Before making your travel plans to any worldwide destination, we strongly recommend you authenticate important details regarding all applicable health, passport and visa requirments. The people at Travel Visa Pro can answer all of your questions!
