Some might say that Denmark is more of a design nation than a cultural haven, but who’s to say that the former doesn’t inform and enhance the latter? At LEGO House, the two are in fact inseparable. Add a stubborn, innovative streak, and the same can perhaps be said for Glyptotek, where classic art gains modern relevance thanks to engaging events and a forward-thinking mindset. At Rudolph Tegner Museum and Statue Park, cultural creativity meets natural beauty with inspiring sculptures and an impressive building set against a scenic backdrop of raw nature.

And speaking of raw: Denmark is the place to be if you want to not just taste, but learn about oysters – and perhaps try picking your own. Nykøbing Mors boasts guided tours in addition to the Oyster and Mussel Premiere in October this year. Over on Funen, meanwhile, you’ll find what is among the world’s best destinations for sea trout fishing, while one of the northern tips of Zealand boasts a beautiful UNESCO Geopark.

‘There is a crack in everything; that’s how the light gets in’, Leonard Cohen famously sang.

Where will you find the light this autumn?
