Denmark marks the happiness quotient of Scandinavia with its hallmark lifestyle. Sprawling across the North Sea island, the Nordic Royal Kingdom of Denmark is one nation famous for its numerous islands, Little Mermaid statue, Royal Palaces, Nyhavn harbor, and Tivoli, World’s 2nd-oldest amusement park. Denmark’s iconic capital Copenhagen is where most of the cultural treasure, is brought into being. All along, our leisurely walks through the cobbled streets of Copenhagen, we noted the tinge of half-timbered houses enveloped in the essence of a medieval core. Perched on the banks of Øresund strait, Denmark’s cultural extravagance first comes to your notice when you observe the Danish yacht lifestyle. Further, extending into the splendors of fine dining, landmark trucking, and therapeutic retail adventures. And so, we have compiled a list of five best things one must try on their Denmark vacation.
1. Explore Gastronomic Denmark
The Danish cuisine is a celebration of flavors, brewed in a unique artistic style. In fact, Scandinavia’s ‘finest’ pastries, bacon, cheese, and butter hail from Denmark and so you can imagine the culinary enthusiasm. Therefore, it’s not surprising that a large number of Michelin-starred restaurants are rolled out all across the Danish territory. Making Denmark host the highest number of Michelin-starred restaurants in the whole of Scandinavia. Luckily for us, our cruise trip from Oslo to Copenhagen had us taste everything from the Leverpostej, Frikadeller, Mørbradbøf, Yogurt ice cream, to the ultra-delicious Danish pastries.
Which, suggested that people in Denmark rely on ‘staple’ Nordic herbs like juniper, dill, wild garlic, caraway, thyme, coriander, and mustard seeds. Beautifully integrating Alchemy into herbal arts, Denmark has become the gastronomic destination where serious connoisseurs meet the magical world of piquancies.
2. Experience The Royal Grandeur
Nothing narrates the royal history of Denmark like the Christiansborg Palace of Copenhagen. Decorated with Copper Tarneit which, is also the centerpiece of Christiansborg Palace, begins the magnificence of the Danish Monarchy.
This Castle has been the principal foundation of the sovereign reign since the eleventh century. In recent times, Christiansborg Slott is the only government building to host all three supreme powers of legislation, execution, and judiciary. Even though, by and large, the Palace is used by the royal family to perform the social duties. From the panache of the delicate chandeliers hanging from the ceiling to the reassuring fabric of the curtains, our Christiansborg Palace peregrination was an antiquated red-carpet walk into the golden lifestyle of the royal kingdom of Denmark.
3. Cycling in Denmark
Denmark is one of the world’s ‘most’ happiest country on the scale of lifestyle. A part of that should be credited, to cycling which, Denmark has greatly integrated into its commuting culture.
One of the finest examples of Denmark’s success with cycling is its integrated cycling network which tops the global chart. Cycling is a great aerobic exercise to keep your heart healthy and happy. And a happy heart promotes a wholesome life with a strong core. Therefore when in Denmark, make sure to rent a cycle to explore the city like a local.
4. Landmark Hopping in Denmark
From wandering into the ‘huge’ LEGO brick building to observing medieval era architectural styles, Denmarks offers a diverse range of landmarks to hop.
You can Ski, hike nature trails, go weekend cruising, take a trip to the underwater bridge, or attend a concert at the World’s 2nd-oldest amusement park, Tivoli. Plenty of choices, if you have plenty of time! For the better use of time and photogenic frames, board the Hop On Hop Off city tour bus.
5. Run Into Several Hundred Santa Clauses
Every year in July, world’s oldest amusement park, Bakken, hosts the largest gathering of Santa Clauses ever. Which, is how Denmark celebrates Christmas in July! Ever since 1957, this customary-tradition has been a fantastic ground for juvenile and adults to get to meet the Santa. However, lately, tourists visiting Copenhagen in July, have been driving down to this closely located rock unit, to participate in the Santa Claus fest. Over 100 Santas from across the world take over Danish Bakken each year for the World Santa Conglomeration.
