Where to Stay

For a family holiday

Families seeking a balanced mix of modern amenities and enchanting nature should explore Copenhagen. Its range of family-friendly attractions, like Tivoli Gardens and the National Aquarium, will keep the younger travellers entertained while parents can soak up the vibrant city culture.

Couples seeking romantic escapades will find Bornholm intriguing. Its sandy beaches, sun-kissed coastlines, and culinary delights offer a celestial retreat for lovebirds. Enjoy a romantic walk along Dueodde Beach or treat your taste buds at the island's renowned smokehouses.

For a trip with friends

Aarhus serves as an ideal destination for a holiday with friends. It is steeped in a fusion of cultural sites, modern architecture, and top-notch eateries that make for a fun-filled time with the gang. Check out Aros Aarhus Art Museum or enjoy a cozy hangout at the Latin Quarter district.

When to Visit

Denmark, with its temperate oceanic climate, makes for a great year-round holiday destination. However, the months between May to August, characterised by warm temperatures and long daylight hours, are considered the most ideal for a visit. This 'high season' sees Denmark at its liveliest, with many cultural events and outdoor activities, though it’s also the busiest time.

The shoulder season of Spring (April to June) and Autumn (September to October) are also great times to visit, especially for budget travellers. The weather is still reasonable, and the tourist crowds are minimal. The low season (November to March) offers a unique charm, especially for those willing to brave the colder temperatures to experience Danish Christmas markets and the country's hygge culture.
