Honeymoons in Scandinavia
Honeymoons in Denmark
A honeymoon in Denmark will be a great experience. The country has been home to the Vikings, fairytale writer Hans Christian Anderson and, most recently, Legoland! This eclectic mix will ensure a honeymoon of new discoveries and diverse experiences.
Denmark is the most modern country in Scanidinavia, whose inhabitants enjoy relaxing in cozy cafés and pubs, cycling, fishing, and indulging in the mouthwatering national cuisine. Tempting bakeries abound, their windows filled with traditional open sandwiches and Danish pastries.
Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital, is the largest city in Scandinavia, and is bursting with cosmopolitan cultural life. From street performers to jazz clubs, pavement cafés to the official royal residence, there is always something new to see. The area around the Nyhavn canal is particularly colorful, and there are many quiet parks, squares and gardens for a relaxing stroll. The Royal Danish Ballet is performed in the city from autumn to spring, and there are many excellent museums to visit.
Another lively city is Arhus, whose beautifully restored old town now serves as an open air museum. The largest church in Denmark is also located here. It is predominantly 15th century Gothic in style, but parts of the structure date back as far as the 1100s. Arhus’ museum holds fascinating collections from the Bronze and Iron ages.
Ribe, founded in the 9th century, is the oldest town in Scandinavia. Centered around its huge cathedral, the town has a fascinating Viking center which is highly recommended.
Another major attraction in Denmark is Egeskov Castle, built in 1554 in the center of a lake. The interior and exterior are both well worth visiting, and the castle is set in a 15 hectare park which features a 200 year old giant maze.
Alongside its historic sights, the country also has some impressive natural features, such as the stunning white chalk cliffs at Mons Klint, and a scattering of picturesque islands. Denmark is a great country - a warm and welcoming honeymoon destination.
