A Mysterious Country by FABIOLA GROSHAN

Denmark is the smallest country of Europe’s five Nordic countries. The Kingdom of Denmark is probably one of the most magical places in the world. The mystical stories of majestic castles, Vikings, and little mermaids make Denmark one of the most incredible places in the world.

This small northern country is a mystery land waiting to be discovered. Although it is a small country, with no more than 4.5 million inhabitants, Denmark knows how to make itself known and loved. Although a travel to Denmark might seem more like a travel to a mystery land, the capital, Copenhagen, is probably one of the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. This city is home to almost 2 million people, more than ten percent of who come from other countries of the world. Copenhagen is the city where nobody can ever get bored. For those who like water and swimming, the capital of Denmark has the Copenhagen Harbor and numerous other beaches. You can indulge yourself with wind-surfing, diving, kayaking and go to some of the wildest beach parties that you have ever seen.

A travel to Denmark will also teach you to love the environment more. This country has a firm position regarding environmental protection, and therefore, you will find places to rent bikes everywhere in Copenhagen. According to Denmark travel guide, some of the other places to see in Copenhagen are the sculpture of the little mermaid, a sculpture that is almost a symbol of this country, and the numerous museums, where you can learn more about this mystery country and old, mysterious castles. Whenever you get tired of biking, you can take a break and enjoy some of the most delicious pastries of the world.

The Tivoli Gardens is another place to visit when you travel to Denmark. This place is famous for its outdoor activities, for its grandiose concerts and, most of all, for its different rides. This is a place for all ages and is recommended by Denmark travel guide.

Denmark is a place of many forests and castles and overall peace and serenity. However, if you want to be intrigued or transport yourself into a world of mystery, then you must visit the Kronborg castle. This is Hamlet’s castle. A good Denmark travel guide will tell you that every summer Shakespeare’s play is reenacted at this castle, so this could be your chance at a little mystery and great acting.

One place you do not want to miss when in Denmark is Lego land. Everybody has heard about the famous Lego and most of us have even played with Lego most of our childhood, so if you travel to Denmark it would be a shame not to visit Lego land.

Denmark is a quiet, romantic and mysterious county. It is the perfect location for a family holiday, as well as for a romantic one. This mystery country changes from year to year, but the essentials stay the same. Denmark was, is and will always be a place to relax, dream and enjoy nature. It would be a shame to miss out on all that.

Driving tips in Denmark by ANDY BURROWS

top  /  Featured Denmark Hotels  / Self-Catering in Denmark

Danish road rules Drivers must be at least 18 years and always be carrying their full, valid license and insurance documents with them in the car. Rental documents, international driving permits, passports - or ID cards - for tourists will suffice. The Danes drive on the right and seatbelts are mandatory for all passengers.
Tourists bringing their own cars into Denmark need to be aware of certain requirements. Drivers must carry a red warning triangle in case the car breaks down, have the letters of their country of residence on the rear of the car, or the new-type Euro plates, and right-hand drive cars need to have headlamp deflectors fitted.

Danish traffic police are very strict and on-the-spot fines for most motoring offences are common. This especially applies to speeding motorists, where radar traps are frequently used to catch people out and hefty fines implemented. Drink drivers are also harshly dealt with – the maximum permissible blood/alcohol level is 0.5mg/ml.

Danish road network Newcomers to Denmark will be surprised at the high quality of the roads here.

Although there are only three main motorways, they cover the essential parts of the country and many secondary roads are as good as motorways.  Motorways carry the European numbering system, denoted by the letter ‘E’, with E47 serving Copenhagen, the E20 running west from Copenhagen past Odense and onto the mainland and the E45 running north to south through the mainland.

All roads are free to drive on in Denmark, including the motorways, with the exception of the two major bridges, the Oresund and Storebaelt Bridges.


Parking can be tough in Copenhagen, where vehicles are only allowed to park for an hour in designated spots on the streets and only after the purchase of a disc – bought from petrol stations, post offices or tourist offices. Other cities are slightly more forgiving although go over time, forget to pay or park illegally and look out!

Unleaded petrol (all grades), diesel and LPG are all available in Denmark. Lead replacement fuel is a substitute for leaded fuel, which is no longer sold in Denmark. Most stations accept credit cards but automatic pumps generally only accept domestic debit cards. 

Danish road safety 

The national breakdown service in Denmark, known as Falck, is 112 and they can be called from any of the emergency motorway telephones 24 hours should you break down - all other essential services are also available on this number including police, fire and ambulance. For non-emergency car problems, Forenede Danske Motorejere (FDM) is the Danish motoring organisation who can provide assistance.

Even with perfect roads, accidents do happen and tourists should remain extra vigilant, particularly when near large cities during rush hour and in inclement weather.
