That Denmark boasts a proud maritime heritage is no secret, and hardly surprising. Add a rich, occasionally war-torn history and an art scene that is bursting at the seams, and you will begin to discover a cultural experience beyond the ordinary.

At Tirpitz Museum, you can discover everything from an incomplete World War II bunker to a beautiful amber collection and 360-degree films about the history of the west coast. At the Maritime Experience Centre Springeren, meanwhile, explore a submarine up close and enjoy some stunning nature, different uniforms and engaging stories about Danish shipping.

Over on the island of Funen, there is plenty to see and do at Fjord&Bælt, a combined tourist attraction and research institute at the Kerteminde fjord. Here you can see porpoises, harbour seals and many other sea mammals and learn about the many facets of aquatic life. Slightly further south, at Naturama in Svendborg, you can enjoy a close encounter with moose, learn about the local fauna through nature photography and discover couture dresses inspired by Nordic animals.

Back on the Jutland peninsula, Viborg Kunsthal makes the perfect pit stop for exploring contemporary art by both established Danish and international artists, and not just for aficionados – this gallery is all about making art accessible. When you are done exploring the exhibitions, hit the town of Viborg, which boasts a wide range of attractions and activities for all ages.

So what are you waiting for? Read on to discover your next cultural adventure in Denmark.
