Denmark Overview

Visiting Denmark

Just like in most Hans Christian Andersen’s tales, there’ll be a happy ending to your journey to Denmark. Expect to be a busy bunny in its wild, wild landscapes before swanning around a multitude of cultured cities and popular tourist attractions. And for Eurocamp customers there’s even more reasons for choosing Denmark. Our high quality accommodation is at Lalandia Billund, Scandinavia’s largest waterpark, and close to LEGOLAND® Billund Resort!

Feel Denmark

As the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen and with its seafaring traditions, sprawling green countryside, bicycles and herring, Denmark sometimes has a storybook feel to it. There’s a sense of national pride here and visitors will note the lack of poverty, its cleanliness, and the eco-friendly ways of the Danes.

Explore Denmark

The most southerly point of Scandinavia, Denmark is a treat for the senses, with untamed landscapes like nowhere else on earth. Go south for beaches with backdrops of dense beech forests. In fact there are so many fjords, islands and beaches here, you’re never far from the sea. But don’t forget the history and culture of its fine cities, with the capital, Copenhagen, amongst the foremost for its blend of classical and modernist architecture, the iconic little mermaid and, of course, the Tivoli Gardens.

Places to visit - Sightseeing

Camping in Denmark puts some of the world’s most unspoiled scenery on your doorstep, not to mention some of Europe’s most unique cities and attractions.

Copenhagen
Denmark’s lovely capital just begs to be explored on the free bikes you will find here; with the Tivoli Gardens, The Little Mermaid, The Carlsberg Brewery, Rosenborg Castle and the maritime Nyhaven area just some of the gems waiting for you.

Odense
As you might expect from the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, you will find plenty of references to the great children’s writer here, together with the Brandts Klædefabrik culture centre and the gorgeous Egeskov Castle.

Aarhus
Denmark’s second city is a place of many contrasts, with the Old Town a living museum that dates back to the renaissance, and the magnificent 12th century Aarhus Cathedral. The city is also surrounded by woodland and coastline.

Aalborg
To the North, you will find Aalborg, gateway to the wild scenery of Jutland, and home to the fine North Jutland Art Museum, designer shopping in the Friis centre, and a multitude of bars and restaurants on Denmark’s longest street, Jomfru Ane Gade.

Jelling
This UNESCO World Heritage Site offers you the chance to see the two famous 8th century Jelling Monuments, runic stones and Royal burial mounds. There is also a visitor centre here to tells the fascinating story behind the monuments.

Vejle Konstmuseum
A fascinating art museum containing a wealth of Danish art from the beginning of the 20th century onwards, including sculptures, paintings, drawings and more than 50 etchings by Rembrandt.

Prindsens Palace
What was once the Prince’s Palace in Copenhagen is now home to the Danish National Museum. Completed in 1744, it still holds much of the Royal furnishings, including some truly spectacular Flemish tapestries in the Long Room.

Great for younger kids

Monky Tonky Land
A big part of Lalandia’s attraction for families is the range of activities it offers for children. Monky Tonky Land is just for little ones, with several floors of LEGO play areas, ball rooms, Jungle Gyms and sweet-making.

LEGOLAND
You’ll find the home of Denmark’s most famous building material right next door to Lalandia, with a massive range of rides, activities and attractions for children of all ages, with plenty of LEGO to wonder at and play with along the way.

Great for older kids

Aqualandia Aquadrome
A simply incredible waterpark that offers something for every member of the family, from paddling pools and slides for little ones, to a wave pool and five waterslides ranging from the Lazy River to the terrifying Tornado for teens.

Places to visit - Activities & events

Golf
Denmark offers some of the world’s most challenging and beautiful golf courses, in environments ranging from open park to quite dense woodland. Holstebro Golf Club in the North West and Simon’s Golf Club near Copenhagen are among the best, however.

Fishing
You are never more than an hour from a beach in Denmark, and often only minutes away from a lake or river; so fishing here is delightful. Daily or weekly licences must be obtained though, from post offices, tourist offices and tackle shops.

Boating
The Danes have a real affinity with water, and so you will find canoes, kayaks and watercraft of every size available for hire across the country. In fact, with so many waterways, you really must get out onto the water while you are here.

Horseriding
Riding is an extremely popular pursuit in Denmark, so you will find ‘Ridecenters’ in many areas, where in addition to trekking through the gorgeous countryside, there are many opportunities to gallop along sea and lake beaches.

Unmissable events in Denmark

Esbjerg Rock Festival – Mid-June
This enduring festival features a host of pop and soft rock acts, with previous headliners including British reggae legends UB40.

Copenhagen Jazz Festival – Every July
One of the big European Jazz Festivals, this is a rare opportunity to enjoy the world’s best jazz and funk in some of the world’s most attractive indoor and outdoor venues.

Opera in the Meadow, Odense – Mid-August
A chance to hear previews of the forthcoming opera season at Odense Concert Hall, held in the gorgeous meadows to be found around Odense.

European Medieval Festival in Horsens – Late August
For two glorious days in late August every year, the city of Horsens becomes a 15th century village, complete with knights, craftsmen and more than 100,000 musicians.

Places to visit - Eating out

When you want a veritable smorgasbord of choice (or Kolde Bord as they call it here), you will find it in the rich cuisine of Denmark:

  • Smørrebrød – open-faced sandwiches of rye bread, often featuring pickled herring, dill, smoked salmon, capers, pickled eel and a host of other ingredients.
  • Pølsevogn – or Sausage Wagons, abound in Denmark’s streets, selling a host of sausages, but particularly the røde pølser or red sausages that the Danes love so much.
  • Frikadeller – fried meatballs, often served with boiled potatoes and steamed cabbage.
  • Akvavit – while there are many fine Danish beers to enjoy, you simply have to have some akvavit: made from potatoes, like vodka, but always flavoured in some way.
