Why visit Denmark?
Denmark, once the home of the Vikings, is still largely a maritime nation bordered by the Baltic Sea and the North Sea. There is no place in this territory that is more than an hour from the coastline, which is mostly full of beaches. The beauties of this European country make us want to show you this compilation of the best Denmark Tourist Attractions on this list.
Today, the Danish Vikings have parked their boats in museums and, like their neighboring Scandinavian countries, have managed to forge a more modern city. People go to this country to enjoy beautiful castles or to visit the birthplace of the Brothers Grim, writers of the most famous fairy tales. Adventurers love Copenhagen as do art and culture lovers.
Starting with the Frederiksborg Palace. Situated in the middle of a lake, the impressive Frederiksborg Palace houses the National History Museum. The museum has existed on the site since 1878, but the castle itself was built during the early part of the 17th century, at which time it was the home of King Christian IV, one of Denmark's best-known monarchs. In particular, the gardens on the other side of the lake stand out, which can be crossed by boat. Some of the best views of the castle can be had from that point.
Denmark is also home to the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde and has many attractions that history fans find simply fascinating, perhaps this is why it is one of the most sought after tourist attractions in Denmark.
Most visitors can enjoy several original Viking ships that were discovered in the Roskilde Fjord, although some are equally delighted with the work being done at the shipyard where original Viking ship building techniques are still used.
In a country with 5,000 miles of coastline, it stands to reason that some people choose to vacation around Skagen in order to spend their days relaxing on the beach. The coastline at Skagen is particularly beautiful, windswept and desolate. The sandbar above Grenen Skagen is the northernmost point in Denmark.
The light on this beach is said to be extraordinary. It is so unusually beautiful, in fact, that a 19th century school known as the Skagen Painters concentrated all their efforts here. It is possible to see his work in the local museum. Also of note are the Råbjerg Milla, Denmark's largest moving sand dune and a church that is buried in the sand entirely except for the barely visible tower.
