With a capital that has one of the most celebrated gourmet scenes in the world, Copenhagen, it comes as little surprise that a trip to this Scandinavian country usually involves hearty feasting. Have a taste for fine-dining experiences? Secure a meal at highly acclaimed restaurants such as NOMA and Relae. Or, for something more casual, scour the streets in search of tasty under-the-radar bites on food tours led by the locals — it’s a great way to make some new friends!
Design also takes centre stage in Denmark. From its architecture, which ranges from grand classical palaces to the one-of-a-kind Lego House, to everyday furniture, the impressive creations will spark your imagination. Once the home of Vikings, Denmark also has its fair share of folklore; visit one of the experiential attractions that will give you a taste of the Viking way of life, snap a shot with the iconic Little Mermaid or search for the six forgotten giants hidden in the woods. Don’t shy away from exploring the locale on a bicycle, which is one of the primary modes of transportation, or to embrace hygge by sitting back and relaxing with a comforting cup of tea.
