|Hi! I'm a 23 year old girl planning on going to Denmark next summer. I'm planning on staying there for about a month so I was wondering what are the things I just do or visit when i'm there. Thanks!|
Hi! Well, Copenhagen is kind of a given since it’s the capitol. Skagen is absolutely INCREDIBLE! It’s a small town and there’s not really a lot happening, but there are lots of things to see and people kinda rush there every Summer lol. And uh, let’s see… It’s hard to pick and choose because basically each place in Denmark has their charm.
I haven’t yet been to the island Bornholm, but I hear it’s pretty amazing. East Jutland has a lot of pretty incredible views. Helgenæs is a place of hills and a beach made of rocks more than sand. Kaløvig is a ruin of something that I don’t remember what used to be, but you can spend half a day there. Ebeltoft is a charming small town about five minutes from Kaløvig. You pass Helgenæs on the way, well depending on where you drive from. If you plan to go to the above mentioned places, I’d recommend staying in Aarhus that also has some cool cultural stuff to see. Like The Old Town museum that has LIVE actors pretending to be people from the 1800s to the 1970s. I was a child actor there for two Decembers and a couple of holiday weekends during the Spring.
Rent a car, that’s a must since you’re a tourist.
Odense on Funen is the town where Hans Christian Andersen was born and they have a museum of his house. Vejle - which is in Jutland along with Aarhus and Ebeltoft - is also a pretty charming small town, but I might be biased since that’s where my Dad’s family is from haha.
Well, I think that’s pretty much it. I would say West Jutland too, but you kinda get to see that while you’re in Skagen if you decide to go there.
Let me know if you have any other questions :)
Note: I am not from Skagen, but I do go there myself once a year - though I’d love for it to be more often. Oh! And if you decide to visit that incredible town, stay there for at least five days. A few days to see the tourist stuff and then another couple of days to relax.
