Denmark is the oldest kingdom in Europe, and known as the birthplace of legendary children's author Hans Christian Andersen. These facts often lead to Denmark being called the 'fairytale country'. Copenhagen is a popular, yet unspoilt destination for long and short breaks. Its proximity to the coastline means there is never any shortage of activities. The original Legoland theme park and the Lion Park Safari are terrific holiday destinations for families, offering on-site and nearby accommodation. But don't forget, Denmark also offers acres of beautiful countryside that consists of stunning still lakes, thick deep forests and a great opportunity for cycling enthusiasts, who appreciate its mainly flat landscape. The west coast includes many high-quality beaches and islands, with windsurfing being popular, while the north of the country provides a far wilder scene, with rugged, rocky areas interspersed with lakes, and Skagen, the northern tip where the North Sea violently meets the Baltic.
The City of Copenhagen – One of the oldest sites in all of Europe, Copenhagen is teaming with ancient architecture, museums , galleries, churches, theatres, restaurants and bars. The magical Tivoli Gardens give a look at how theme parks used to be, yet still complete with some modern rides, while King's Gardens of Rosenborg Castle offer the serenity of an early 17th century royal grounds and the Carlsberg Botanical Gardens or Fælledparken are on hand as well. The inner city is often referred to 'The Medieval City', and it shares old-time architecture with Frederiksstaden, and the iconic Little Mermaid bronze statue that sits on a rock by the Langelinie promenade, in tribute to Hans Christian Andersen.
Legoland – In the central region of Denmark, in the midst of picturesque villages made up from old houses, inns and churches, sits the amusement park of Legoland, near Billund. The original Lego factory sits next to the first Legoland, which opened in 1968, and has played host to more than 50 million visitors over the years. With 45 acres, made up by Duplo Land, Imagination Zone, LEGOREDO Town, Adventure Land, Lego City, Knight's Kingdom, Mini Land, Pirate Land, and Polar Land, Legoland Billund has become the template for the rest of the world's Lego theme parks. The Park includes rollercoaster rides, water rides, amazing scale models of landmarks like Mount Rushmore, the Statue of Liberty, and the Acropolis of Athens made with over 25 million Lego bricks, plus much more for all the family.
