Denmark Holidays: an Overview

The Danes are a pretty sophisticated bunch, and responsible for far more that we consider stylish than any population of just 5.5 million people has any right to be. Copenhagen is the natural choice of destination to best appreciate this characteristic cool and confidence, and few capitals so well sum up their nation as this compact city on the sea.

Harriet, Pip and Flora are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Copenhagen is quite possibly the most stylish city in Europe, and a boat tour from iconic Nyhavn is the best way to see all of it's iconic sights
  • The art, design and cultural sights extend further than just the country's capital: Louisiana art gallery, just north of Copenhagen, is worth a visit, as is Hamlet's castle, Kronborg, which sits in the coastal spot of Helsingør
  • Copenhagen is a highly conscious green city, so cycling is a must - it's the Danes' mode of transport of choice

Luxury Travel to Denmark: the Detail

Original Travel has long had a soft spot for Denmark, no more so than its capital city, Copenhagen. The city (perhaps unsurprising since one of our Directors is half Danish) represents one of the best city breaks going thanks to regular and short flights. We can put together the perfect itinerary for you, including charming hotels, outstanding restaurant recommendations and excellent shopping opportunities. Finally, Europe offers few more magical experiences than the traditional Tivoli Gardens funfair at Christmas. Even adults might start to feel the festive spirit.

Original Highlight

Denmark fostered the Nordic Food Movement, which kick-started the now-thriving Scandi food scene. It's particularly famous for birthing Noma, the restaurant voted the world's best for three years running. Be sure to book well in advance!
