Denmark is a Nordic country situated in Northern Europe. It is the most southern most of the Scandinavian countries and shares a land boarder on the south with Germany.
Famous for its hygge (“a quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being”) lifestyle it is often voted one of the happiest places in the world to live. While this might not be the first thing you think of when it comes to Denmark, many people associated it with colourful buildings, Hans Christian Andersen or maybe even it’s Viking heritage. For the team here at Ferry to Europe, when we think of Denmark we only think of one thing….. and that’s Lego!
Travelling to Denmark by Ferry
Unfortunately from 2014, DFDS Seaways closed the last remaining passenger service between the UK and Denmark (Harwich to Esbjerg). There are currently no direct ferries operating between Britain and Scandinavia.
Where to Visit in Denmark
Famous for its rejuvenation of its waterfront, Aalborg is an ancient city with a Viking Past. With its famous striking architecture and beautiful street art. This ancient city blends the old with the new seamlessly.
Aarhus is a tiny city which literally can claim everything is within walking distance. Famous for its unusual architecture, why not visit the Infinite Bridge, walk through the Rainbow bridge or visit The Iceberg (part of the new towns regeneration of the harbour).
No trip to Denmark would be complete without visiting it’s capital: Copenhagen. Known for its canals, charming house, Trivoli Gardens and of course the fairy-tale magic created by Hans Christian Andersen, its really is a city which has something for everyone.
Birth place to Hans Christian Andersen, Odense is a cosy city where you will feel like you are stepping back in time. Located on the island of Fyn, this island is full of gardens, parks and woodlands.
