With impressive art history, countless buzzing harbour towns, a penchant for charming festivals and nature that never disappoints, Denmark is a great choice for your next cultural weekend away.
From the breathtaking Vendsyssel in the north and the naturally stunning Thy in the north-west, to the lush greenery of Geografisk Have in Kolding further south, CLAY Museum of Ceramic Art in Middelfart and, of course, the Natural History Museum in Aarhus, you really don’t have to leave Jutland for a culturally stimulating visit to Denmark. Should you want to experience the buzz of the popular capital on Zealand, however, you will still be spoilt for choice. The David Collection in particular is worth a visit.
Add countless award-winning eateries, picturesque towns and city streets, and charming festivals such as Riverboat Jazz Festival, and you’ll see why culture vultures rate Denmark as a top destination all year round.
Read on for our top tips of where to go and what to see on your next cultural visit to Denmark.
