What's Denmark Like?
The bustle and cultural buzz of Copenhagen is the first stop for many visitors to Denmark. The Little Mermaid statue by the harbor has become the symbol of the city, but Copenhagen also offers the elegant 19th-century amusement park of Tivoli Gardens, an impressive national museum and some of Europe's most celebrated 21st-century cuisine. The Blue Planet aquarium features ocean, Amazonian, and coral reef environments, while also offering outstanding views over the Oresund. Beyond the capital, the original Legoland in Billund remains one of Denmark's most popular family attractions with theme rides and shows. Culture vultures will love the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in a beautiful setting in North Zealand, only a short train ride from Hamlet's Elsinore castle with its dramatic location overlooking the sea in in Helsingor. Denmark hotels provide a convenient base for exploring a compact but fascinating European nation.
Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Denmark
The Danes, like many Scandinavians, tend to speak English well, and language is unlikely to be an issue in Copenhagen. One quirk of Danish is that there is no word for "please", so Danes use indirect ways of requesting favors. To fit in with locals, dress nicely but not too flashily for dining out, theater visits or concerts. Danes tend to be reserved, and boisterous behavior is unusual in public. Danes are keen cyclists, using bikes to get around in Copenhagen and the countryside. Tourists can join in by hiring bikes in the capital but should also look out for designated cycle lanes and cyclists approaching at high speed.

Features include certified guest reviews, photo galleries and sample room layouts to give you a clear idea of what to expect from Denmark accommodation.
