Travel to Denmark
Denmark was at one time the seat of power for the Vikings. Today, it is a modern, bustling country that is generally believed to be one of the happiest countries in the world. Denmark is a lovely little part of the Scandinavian region, and it has today become one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations. The capital Copenhagen has the most Michelin-starred restaurants in the Scandinavian region, and even a visit to a small roadside café can be a gastronomic delight!
Denmark offers the visitors much more than just its world famous culinary delights. There are smaller towns such as Ribe and Odense, which have a unique and unexplored charm. The medieval castles doting the countryside, the tiny 18th century villages, the lovely churches of a long-gone era and above all, some of the world’s most beautiful countryside are a few of the most attractive features of the country. The renowned Danish excellence in design is something that can be observed even while travelling on the Copenhagen metro or while visiting its stores. The sea is always less than one hour away and the beaches are splendid.
Flights to Denmark
Flights to Copenhagen are easily available from all over the world. Denmark has two major international airports and several other smaller ones. Most European airlines offer flights to Copenhagen, and the airport is only 8 km. away from Central Copenhagen.

By road, the German Autobahn is a good alternative, with some part of the journey being completed by using the car ferries along the way.
When to Visit Denmark
