As I think you all know by now, I had the opportunity to live one year in Denmark (wondering why? Click here )and during this period I took advantage of weekends and little breaks to visit the country. Denmark is not a big country so, if you have the possibility, I would strongly recommend to plan a road – trip there, I believe danish landscapes and nature are the biggest treasure of the country!
Below, I made a list of the places which you should definitely check out whenever you’re there 🙂
1 | Ribe
Ribe is a little town in the south-west Jutland Region. What I liked most of this place is that it give me the idea of being a typical danish environment: cozy coloured houses one near each other, with cutely decorated doors. Quiet and well maintained streets which all bring to one of the main attraction: the Cathedral. I would definitely recommend to visit Ribe if you want a taste of (what I define as) calm-everyday living danish life style.
2 | Skagen
Skagen is the northern point of Denmark where the two seas (the North Sea and the Baltic Sea) meet. You couldn’t believe how much visible that line between the two seas is visible!
But if you want to know more and see other pictures, I have written this post about this beautiful place and the road trip I did to reach it 😉
3 | The Men at Sea
The Men at Sea are four 9 meter tall white statues positioned seafront in the little town of Esbjerg. I went there during a wonderful sunny Sunday and the statues were literally shining. The feeling you have when you stand beside them is quite awkward, you feel so small and powerless, but I guess this was the meaning the artist who created them wanted to give 😉
[Little note: I’m sorry that from the picture you can’t really see how big they are, unfortunately I’ve lost the ones I wanted to post… but I hope that still, you get the idea that it’s worth a visit! 😉 ]
[Extra little note: Danish typical wind + seaside typical wind = it’s a miracle we managed to not be blew away while jumping 😀 ]
4 | Copenhagen
Of course you can’t miss visiting the capital of Denmark! Because of this I wrote a specific post about what you must-see when you’re there and I can assure you that it’s definitely a city worth a visit 🙂
Unfortunately danish public transport is quite expensive but it is so easy and enjoyable to rent a bike anywhere! Otherwise, if you want to travel from a city to another I suggest to just rent a car. As stated before, Denmark is not too big so the hours you would spend travelling from a place to place are not long! 🙂
Have you ever been to Denmark? Which are your favourite places you’ve visited? 🙂
