DENMARK

Imagine a small kingdom in the far north, comprising more than a thousand islands, rolling hills, woodlands, meadows and endless, scenic coasts.
A land alongside the seaway between the North Sea and the Baltic, with a history that extends all the way back to the end of the Ice Age.
A land whose people were once tough Vikings, but who are now an innovative nation, renowned for gastronomy, design and green energy.
A land shaped by the changing seasons; windswept from the west and exposed to easterly winds, with crisp, cool air from the north and warm southerly breezes.
A land of delightfully dreamy, light-filled summer days and nights, and cosy, dark winter months.
A land of culinary sensations based on high-quality ingredients grown, gathered or caught locally.
A land where happiness and hygge are part and parcel of its people’s identity.
A small country whose people may not be all that different from anyone else, and yet have a special something about them.

 

That land is the Kingdom of Denmark.

DISCOVER DENMARK

WITH ØBO TOURS

Denmark has such a lot to offer as a holiday destination and as a destination for companies, clubs and associations. Denmark consists of 1,420 islands, and nowhere is more than 50 km from the water. With its cities, its unspoilt countryside, and its visionary dedication to organic and sustainable produce, Denmark offers a varied palette of opportunities to create memorable travel experiences.

 

The pulsating capital city of Copenhagen – best known to the world at large for The Little Mermaid, Tivoli, the free city of Christiania and its numerous cycle paths – has a lot to offer, with a history that goes all the way back to 1043. The list of museums, restaurants, architecture, culture, etc., is long and includes something to suit all tastes and interests.

 

Moving beyond Copenhagen, each district has its own identity in terms of scenery, culture and people. You can discover the many different islands, festivals, markets, castles, and explore Viking history, cross bridges and go on sailing trips. You can also meet enthusiastic locals who are convinced that their particular production of beer, wine or honey is the best.

  1. Viking beginnings

    The Vikings began exploring the world via the seas and rivers to trade, plunder and conquer. In Viking times, there could well be more than one king reigning simultaneously, but Gorm the Old, who reigned until his death in 958, consolidated the power of the monarchy. The Viking era continued until around 1050, and King Gorm’s descendants have ruled Denmark ever since.

     

    Did you know there are more than 20 exciting Viking attractions all over Denmark?

  2. Hans Christian Andersen was born in Odense on 2 April

    Poet and author Hans Christian Andersen is world famous for his fairy tales, which captivate children and adults alike to this day. Hans Christian Andersen wrote a total of around 200 fairy tales, including The Little Mermaid, The Emperor’s New Clothes and The Ugly Duckling.

     

    Did you know that you can get right up close to this writer of fairy tales by walking in his footsteps in Odense, the city of his birth?

  3. Tivoli – the gardens were established by Georg Carstensen

    The TIVOLI amusement park is located in the heart of Copenhagen. TIVOLI is the most-visited tourist attraction in Denmark and the third-most visited amusement park in Europe.

     

    Did you know that, each year, TIVOLI decks out the gardens for Halloween and Christmas, and is open at Easter too?

  4. Denmark gains its first Michelin star

    Kong Hans Kælder in Copenhagen was the first restaurant in Denmark to be awarded a Michelin star. For many years now, Nordic cuisine has been gaining international acclaim, and traditional Danish open sandwiches have become a trendy choice for lunch.

     

    Did you know that, in recent years, a number of Michelin stars have also been awarded outside Copenhagen?

  5. The Danes are picked out as the happiest people in the world

    The Danes topped the first edition of the UN World Happiness Report and have more or less remained at the top ever since. Apparently, Danes owe their happiness, in part, to hygge, which is integral to their sense of wellbeing.

     

    Did you know you can feel the hygge all over Denmark when you visit? And it’s free!

  6. The World Bank picks Denmark as the leader in green energy

    A report by the World Bank concluded that Denmark has the best framework conditions in the world when it comes to access to energy, energy efficiency and renewable energy.

     

    Did you know that Northern Jutland has a visitor centre where you can get right up close to the future of wind technology?
