It may seem like there is no time to travel while working abroad, but everything is possible if you plan it the right way. Try to chat with local people and find out what’s worth seeing in the area where you live and work. Attractions may be close by and you can reach them by bike. After exploring the surroundings, you can visit other cities. Even if you came to work to Denmark without own transportation, you can find alternative ways to travel to other cities or regions and visit the greatest beauties of Denmark. In Denmark, connections between cities are very convenient due to the well-developed train system.
Some recommendations for your holidays in Denmark:
- If you work in Copenhagen, you should start from there. It is recommended to constantly browse, explore and even get lost in the beautiful capital of Denmark. This will ensure that you have fully explored this amazing city. If you include cultural and artistic objects in your route, you will not regret it. It is recommended to visit the town hall square, visit the famous monument of Copenhagen – the mermaid. Also noteworthy are the port of Nyhavn, Tivoli Park, Kristianborg and Rosenborg Palace, and the zoo.
- In Denmark, you can have a fun weekend in Legoland. The amusement park in Billund is popular not only in Denmark but all over Europe and it is really interesting to visit not only for children but also for adults.
- Did you know that the Øresund Bridge in Denmark is the longest common road and rail bridge in Europe? The part length of the bridge from the Swedish coast to the artificial island of Pepparholm in the Öresund Strait is almost eight kilometers. The connection is completed by a four-kilometer-long Drogden tunnel that stretches to Amager Island, which is connected to Copenhagen. It will take 13 years to repaint this bridge! The bridge looks really impressive, so it is definitely worth seeing or passing it in order to see the spectacular view and horizon.
- If possible, it is recommended to go to the northernmost city of Denmark – Skagen. This city is surrounded by the North and Baltic Seas – this fact attracts tourists not without a reason! It is one of the most beautiful cities in this country, whose nature has inspired watch manufacturers to create one of the most exclusive watch designs in the world, named after this particular town.
- The Danish National Aquarium in Kastrup can also be a great entertainment for the weekend. This aquarium looks impressive and holds about seven million gallons of water. For nature and animal lovers, this will definitely be a rewarding and fun time.
- Frederiksborg Castle – the largest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia located in the north of Copenhagen – Hillerød. This building stands out for its majesty and is built on 3 small islands. It is worth not only to see this building, but also to visit the National History Museum located in it.
- If you are interested in history you must also travel to Ribe – the oldest Scandinavian city, which was founded more than 1,300 years ago. The exclusive atmosphere of the city will allow you to go back to medieval times – here you can visit the Viking Museum. This city borders the Wadden Sea National Park, where the land and the sea give visitors a unique entertainment – the opportunity to walk on the seabed when it subsides. Here you will meet resting seals, mollusks, crabs, and other sea dwellers. Today this city with broken, cobbled streets and semi-wooden 16th century houses looks like a living museum of history!
- The island of Bornholm will enchant everyone with its beautiful sandy beach and tranquility. For nature lovers, the cycle path on the island’s coast will be a great weekend entertainment. It doesn’t matter if you have not brought your bikes, they can always be rented.
Even those who are visiting Denmark not for the first time will find activities and unvisited cities, amazing nature to explore. You will never get bored in Denmark – you can spend your free time from work actively exploring the various beauties and historical places or enjoy completely simple things, for which the Danes even have a separate word – “Hygge”. It is the satisfaction we experience while enjoying the simple moments of life.
