Cities and Sights
Danish towns and cities have a maritime flair and a Danish tranquillity. In addition to the vibrant capital Copenhagen, idyllic coastal villages and picturesque harbor towns with cozy restaurants, small shops, and friendly residents are beautiful.
Ribe is a place in the Syddanmark region that takes you back to the Middle Ages. In Denmark’s oldest town, quaint taverns, colorful wooden houses, and an idyllic harbor await you. It has long been regarded as the most important harbor in the North Sea – especially for the Vikings, whose footsteps you can follow in Ribe. At the VikingCentre, you can find out all sorts of interesting facts about the sailors’ lives, visit an authentic Viking market and admire theatre performances.
One of the city’s most important attractions in Ribe Cathedral is an evangelical Episcopal church built in 860, making it the oldest church. From the north tower, you have a magnificent view of the Wadden Sea. But if you prefer to admire it up close, you can find tours of the Wadden Sea Centre, where you can observe seals and catch oysters and thus get up close to flora and fauna of the area. In the evening, the harbor promenade beckons with the nostalgic charm of a bygone era.
In Aalborg, Denmark’s fourth-largest city, opposites meet. In addition to a history rich in tradition, the growing metropolis paves the way for the modern age. On the one hand, the ritual burial grounds of the past still dominate the cityscape. On the other hand, the city was awarded the European prize in 1988 as an example of integration efforts. Situated on the Limfjord, a direct tributary of the Baltic Sea, Aalborg is a beautiful harbor town with an inviting promenade. In addition to the historic old town, with colorful graffiti here and there in the streets, you can immerse yourself in Aalborg’s musical landscape.
There are around 400 islands around Denmark, but only 70 of them are inhabited. If you want to get to know Denmark in all its facets, you should plan an island tour.
The Baltic island of Møn
Møn is one of Denmark’s most beautiful islands – an island south of Copenhagen. It impresses with its fascinating chalk cliffs and dense forests that invite you on extensive hikes. We recommend climbing the highest chalk cliff, Møns Klint. It reaches 128 meters above sea level and offers you a phenomenal view of the blue water and the steep coastline.
After a strenuous hike, you deserve to cool off and can descend directly from the top of the chalk cliff down a staircase to a beautiful sandy beach. If, on the other hand, you prefer to experience a day full of cultural highlights, the classic Liselund Castle or the old farmhouse beckons.
The North Sea island of Rømø
Denmark’s most significant island in the North Sea is Rømø Island, with 129 square meters. It magically attracts holidaymakers seeking peace and tranquillity. Roofed cottages, endless dunes, and heather-covered landscapes beckon you for long walks before you can soak up the sun on the 20 km long sandy beach of Sønderstrand.
This beach is equally interesting for swimmers and water sports enthusiasts, as it has two sections. The quiet zone is ideal for sunbathing, while the active spot is ideal for surfing, sailing, horse riding, or bus rides. Rømø Island is connected to the Danish mainland by a bridge, making it easy to reach by car.
