Denmark is becoming quite famous for, among other reasons, its consistent ranking in global surveys as one of the happiest places on earth. This country's unusually high quality of life is often traced back to its civic harmony, flawless public transportation, and its landscape of endless architectural and natural beauty.
In every city and beautiful picturesque village across the countryside, Denmark invests in preservation of the past. There are magnificent ancient castles and cathedrals here around every turn. The country also shows no hesitation to embrace the future, and its technological advancements, public parks, and even restaurants are consistently pristine, elegant, and world class.
Come to Denmark to explore the rocky coastlines, hike the blooming mountain trails, and wander through structures that are still standing after thousands of years. Come here to enjoy the restaurants and energetic nightlife that draw visitors from all over the world. And while you're here, meet the people of this global capital of contentment and see if they'll share the secret to a happy life.
Here are a few additional suggestions as you plan your trip:
- Copenhagen: Explore the National Museum in Copenhagen to learn more about Denmark's culture and history. Then visit Rosenburg Castle, a preserved opulent palace now turned into an art museum.
