Discover Denmark: Accessible art, stunning nature and a really fast run
Some say that Denmark has had its peak, what with ‘hygge’ and Nordic Noir going global. But we are convinced that the country and its culture are very much still peaking – and we simply cannot get enough of exploring Danish cultural experience gems.
Perhaps nothing sounds more stereotypically Scandinavian than a collaborative effort to make art accessible – but in a good way. Randers Kunstmuseum started out just like that, with a core mission of democratising art still at its heart.

Then again, a little bit of Viking history tends to be high on most Scandophiles’ bucket lists, possibly alongside the discovery of stunning nature, sandy beaches and some island hopping. This and more, including a haven for bird watchers and quality jazz festivals, you will find in and around Esbjerg.
But Danes are not just proud of their history; they are early adopters as well, and sure enough, there are many among them who have long been making the most of the currently booming running trend. A coincidence that one of the fastest marathon routes exists in Denmark? We do not think so.
Add smørrebrød, craft beer and a charming bike ride – and repeat.
