From golden sandy beaches and pristine nature to hip cafés and Michelin-starred restaurants, a hotel break in Denmark is a feast for the senses.
Situated on a peninsula and an archipelago between the North Sea and the Baltic, Denmark offers a wealth of attractions and over 7300 km of sandy coastline. There are plenty of great options for a beach hotel break in Denmark, including the hugely popular Søndervig on the North Sea, the lively Hornbæk Beach on the Danish Riviera and the laid-back, family-friendly Marielyst Beach on the island of Falster. Denmark also offers a national network of hiking trails and lots of pristine nature for active travellers to explore, as well as the diverse landscapes, flora and fauna of its three National Parks. In spite of its reputation as an expensive destination, there is a wide range of affordable hotels in Denmark, and countless sights are free to visitors – including 3 out of 5 of its UNESCO cultural sites - making it suitable for travellers on a budget as well. The fashionable capital, Copenhagen, has a host of great museums, bohemian cafés and a pedestrian-friendly city centre, as well as 15 Michelin-starred restaurants and an experimental dining culture centred around local produce and traditional Danish cuisine. On the Jutland Peninsula, the laid-back university town of Aarhus has a lively nightlife, romantic cobblestone streets and an ever-growing selection of cultural attractions in anticipation of the city’s role as a European Capital of Culture in 2017.
