Copenhagen — 8 nights

City of Beautiful Towers

Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen has morphed into the cultural, political, and economic powerhouse of the country.
Shop till you drop at National Gallery of Denmark and Illum. Nyhavn and Our Saviour's Church will appeal to history buffs. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Rosenborg Castle, explore the galleries of Visit Carlsberg Brand Store, wander the streets of Christiania, and take an in-depth tour of Amalienborg Museum.

Historic Walking Areas · Gardens · Castles
Known for its old-fashioned charm, Denmark often is referenced as a fairy-tale setting by visitors and locals alike. With quaint cobblestone streets leading the way to art galleries, museums, and historical sights, plus a modern and easily accessible public transportation system, Denmark seamlessly blends its rich history with modern advancements. Be inspired by the works of local legends, including the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, the symphonies of Carli Nielsen, and the astronomy work of Tycho Brahe, then play a bit at amusement parks like Legoland. Visitors often find themselves developing "hygge," the untranslatable Danish trait that encapsulates a sense of coziness and contentment, which is thought to have a great deal of influence on Denmark's standing as one of the happiest nations on the planet.
