Things to Do in Denmark: The Best Places to Visit, The Best Restaurants & Top Events
If you’re visiting to Denmark, or just moved here and are wondering what things you should do first, we’ve got you covered. In this article, we’ll list some of the best places to visit, the best restaurants to eat at, and the top entertainment events and activities in Denmark.
Places to Visit in Denmark
Denmark’s stunning archipelago stretches the entire length of the country. This seaside, rocky region has more than 100 islands and islets, some smaller than a few blocks, and each with a unique history and charm. If you visit the archipelago, make sure you head to Holmen, a beautiful islet in Copenhagen harbor, where the Royal Life Guards meet for their daily training.
The festivities last all summer, but events happen throughout the year, including an annual singing competition and the Yule Ball. There is also a scenic walk around the island. Denmark’s royal capital, Copenhagen, is home to more than 9,500 acres of parks and gardens.
During the summer, the Christiania district becomes a melting pot of cultural groups from all over the world and an escape from the chaotic city.
Best Restaurants to Eat at in Denmark
If you’ve never lived anywhere in the world where veganism is not only accepted, but encouraged, I’d recommend giving The Danes a chance. All of the places we mentioned below have a fully vegan menu and even use organic products.
Bock Brauhaus Schloss Bock
Located in Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest city, Brauhaus Schloss Bock is one of the most famous and most popular restaurants in the country. They also have a large following of tourists visiting the town.
Opened in 1994, this is a traditional German restaurant, so prepare yourself for a lot of bock beer and traditional German cooking. They offer German-inspired dishes with a Scandinavian twist.
You can get your meat fix at the restaurant’s Hofbrau Bock for those interested in meat.
Top Events and Activities in Denmark
Walking Tour of Copenhagen Old Town
Who doesn’t love being in Copenhagen, and especially walking around the old city? Walking tours of Copenhagen Old Town (Havn) allow you to experience the city at your own pace, and also allows you to discover how Copenhagen used to look like, since Copenhagen was built in a series of narrow, winding, and long alleyways. The tour takes an average of 2 hours and 15 minutes, and you can get there by taking the train to Tønder. Why choose this tour? You’ll learn some of the most interesting stories about the city’s history. You’ll also learn how to enjoy and appreciate the city, while walking around it.
The Trine Dyrholm Film School
Come for the classes, but stay for the film nights, which have become a large part of Trine Dyrholm’s film school. These film nights are a great place to meet someone new. Although apps like MegaPersonals.co are very popular in Denmark, sometimes it’s best and easiest to go out and meet someone in person if you’re looking to hook up, and this film school is one of the best places to do just that.
