Denmark, officially the Kingdom of Denmark, is a Nordic country in Northern Europe. Founded in the 8th-century, Denmark lies southwest of Sweden and south of Norway and is bordered to the south by Germany.
The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen is known for its food. Over the last few years, the city has become a culinary powerhouse with an impressive 13 Michelin-star restaurants. Head off on a tour of the emerging, traditional and contemporary hotspots the city has to offer or simply sit back, relax and watch the world go by as you dine at a street food stall. Copenhagen is more than its delicious dishes, while in port, why not head to Tivoli Gardens? The second-oldest amusement park in the world, Tivoli offers fun for all the family. Opened in 1843, the amusement and pleasure park apparently inspired Walt Disney’s Disney World. If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground, the impressive Frederiksborg Castle is situated in the neighbouring town of Hillerød. Built in the 17th-century by the founder of Carlsberg, this intruding structure presents impressive Renaissance interiors, treasurable furniture and historic paintings that’ll take you on a journey through Denmark’s illustrious past.
Another popular stop on a Denmark cruise, Skagen (pronounced ‘skain’) is located at Jutland’s northern tip where the Baltic meets the North Sea. Its landscape is one of the most breathtaking in Denmark, think white sand beaches, endless grasslands and vast forests ideal for keen photographers. Skagen is all about taking it easy and because of this, it’s a favoured cruise destination for yogis, hikers and walkers who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
