We have got big, famous attractions of course. But, before you click there! Why not get to know our quirks and customs, our food and our neighbourhoods...the things to do. Then a little bit of our everyday wonder might rub off on you, too. And isn’t that what travel is all about? We think so! 

How to find wonder in the things you see

It might happen while you're cycling with Danes in Copenhagen for the first time. Or watching the black sun murmurations over the Wadden Sea National Park. As a weird and wonderful place to start on your journey to find wonder, try these unique and unusual things to do in Denmark!

When are you thinking about coming?

With each season in Denmark comes a unique set of experiences to try. And remember, we Danes believe there's no such thing as bad weather. Just bad clothing choices.

Danes heart design!

From iconic buildings to world-famous furniture, seeing the way design is blended into Danish life is a good way to re-focus on the simplicity and beauty of daily life. In other words, come and stare at pretty things.
