A land of vast plains and rich soil, Denmark has a remarkable history through the ages that excites and delights any traveler fortunate enough to visit its shores. A place once ruled by Vikings, today Denmark is home to one of the oldest monarchies in the world. Stroll through compact Copengahen and marvel at Amalienborg Palace, one of nine castles owned by the Royal Family, or do as the locals do and hop on a bicycle and stride along picturesque harbor towns en route to a Michelin-star restaurant—Copenhagen alone has fifteen of them. Pick up some Scandi furniture, ceramic or glassware—smartly designed and likely eco-friendly, too. This forward-thinking nation is filled with old-world charm, unforgiving landscapes, natural delights, and a positive energy that’s blissfully contagious.
