Considered to be one of the most beautiful countries in the world, Denmark remains to be one of the best tourist destinations to visit. Thanks to the country’s size, it’s a relatively small one, which makes it a fun place to check out thanks to the amount of stuff you can do in just one day!
But not a lot of people see it that way, and because of that, they miss out on the chance to explore this gorgeous country. So to get you hooked on it even more, here are three simple reasons you should head over to the Nordic country, Denmark.
#1 Palaces and Castles
Denmark is home to some of the most impressive and well-maintained palaces and castles in all of Europe. They definitely made sure to preserve their national heritage, and now, the castle doors are open to the public to see just how magnificent life was before.
Also, a little fun fact, the famous play from William Shakesphere, Hamlet, was actually inspired by one of the castles in Denmark, the Kronborg Castle. It has since then been called Shakesphere’s castle, as a way of paying homage to the late and legendary writer.
But don’t worry, because there are many more castles to be explored as well! Such as the Amalienborg Palace, the Rosenborg Castle, and even more! So if you’re looking to learn more about the renaissance period for all of Europe, then Denmark is the place to visit!
#2 Windswept beaches.
Generally, beaches are supposed to be warm and hot. A place that you want to go to during the summer and enjoy beach games and tanning.
But in Denmark, it’s a little bit different. With over 7,300 kilometers of beaches, Denmark is a hotspot for windswept beaches. By that, we mean, beaches that are mostly dominated by strong winds rather than strong sunshine. But that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable.
The windswept beaches of Denmark are a great place to snap a pic, thanks to its very cinematic aesthetic. And it’s also a jackpot for professional photographers to take pictures for their magazines as well.
#3 Experiencing “hygge”
In layman’s terms, hygge means to experience warmth and comfort over the little things. And no other country in the world does this better, than Denmark itself.
If anything, it’s actually a staple for the country and the locals, as they are considered to be the happiest country in the world. Hygge is their way of coping with the challenges that everyday life always gives us. So they do small things like wearing pajamas, relaxing by a fireplace, eating their favorite food, you name it. It’s a way for them to relax and be happy throughout their life.
So if you want to find that hygge for yourself, there really is no better place to experience it than Denmark!
The country of Denmark is riddled with museums and windswept beaches to visit. And although they are pretty amazing in their own right, it’s the people that live in this country that really make it a place worth visiting. Be it taking you through a tour in one of their castles, or experiencing hygge. The people of Denmark are sure to make you the happiest you can be. I mean, that’s what they’re all about!
