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.
Just like in most Hans Christian Andersen’s tales, there’ll be a happy ending to your journey to 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.

The famous open sandwiches the Danes call ‘smørrebrød’ can be made with pickled herring, smoked salmon, liver paté and many other ingredients (but not all at the same time). The Danes also love hearty fare such as pan-fried meatballs and roast pork with plenty of crackling. You probably already know of the many fine beers from this part of the world, but you might try Akvavit, a flavoured spirit similar to vodka, but made from potatoes. Strangely, the Danish pastry originated in Vienna.
