Sights between flights
You’ll be spoilt for awe-inspiring landmarks in Denmark. Nyhavn is renowned for its colourful houses, while the Frederiksborg Castle complex is ever so majestic. Kids will enjoy the brick-built fun at the LEGO House, too. A trip to Esbjerg will afford you views of the incredible Man Meets the Sea sculpture of giants.
Exploring in winter
If you’re prepared to bundle up in thick coats and woolly hats and scarves, it’s well worth getting stuck into the activities on offer around Denmark. The nation’s keen on cycling, but you don’t just have to explore on two wheels – how does bridge walking, sailing a Viking longboat or winter bathing sound?
You won’t get far around Denmark without finding smørrebrød on the menu. These classic Danish open sandwiches are typically topped with local delicacy raw herring, hard-boiled eggs or cold meats and vegetables. Got a sweet tooth? You can’t beat a sticky Danish pastry with a pick-me-up coffee.
