Although most visitors know Denmark is split between five main islands, they remain unaware of over 400 islands (of which less than a quarter are populated) also belonging to this Scandinavian country. Copenhagen is a delightfully quaint capital city, with colourful houses and old-world bridges running across the canals. The city, like the rest of Denmark, is extremely bike-friendly and cycling routes and paths can be found all across the country. Leave the capital behind and head into the fairytale land of Hans Christian Andersen in Odense, Hamlet's castle in Elsinore, Denmark's oldest city in Ribe, and one of Europe's largest carnivals in Aalborg.
Although Denmark has many music events, the biggest of them all is a rock festival at Roskilde which attracts over 80,000 people. But Roskilde is not just about the music, it also preserves Denmark's Viking heritage in two museums, and houses the cathedral where most Danish royalty are buried. Denmark's ability to entertain is not limited to Legoland in Billund, it also has Dyrehavsbakken, the world's oldest operating amusement park. For vacation time, follow the Danes over to Bornholm, a sunny island out in the Baltic Sea which is a favourite summertime destination.
For a little taste of everything Danish, order a smørrebrød — open faced sandwiches covered in a variety of cold cuts, salads, fish, and Danish cheese. This is a beer country, and after a few glasses you will see the Danish reserve relax into wholehearted partying that lasts all night long!
International airports are scattered across Denmark's islands in Copenhagen (CPH and MMX), Billund (BLL), Esbjerg (EBJ), Aalborg (AAL), and Aarhus (AAR). There are very few direct flights from North America to Denmark so it may be cheaper to fly to London or Amsterdam and then take a cheap flight to Denmark. Airlines with flights to Denmark include British Airways, Air Canada, Scandinavian Airlines, Delta, and Lufthansa.
Denmark's peak tourist season is from the end of June until August. Good times to go and still avoid the crowds are May, early June, or the end of August. Avoid the wintertime, as it is particularly harsh and gets worse as you go farther north. Most tourist spots close up shop around November and don't reopen until late March.
