Denmark – The country of full of bicycles, where you can get to experience the Vikings lifestyle, enjoy millions of gastronomic alternatives, bike rides around Copenhagen main streets, get lost in their fairytale castles under a hyggeligt (cozy) atmosphere.
Sara Lopez, a Spaniard living in Denmark, shares with us the most interesting places in this country.
In general, one of the most special corners of Denmark is its capital: Copenhagen, where we can find the most enjoyable colorful places:
Busy gastronomic streets full of bars and restaurants with a view to the canal. It is undoubtedly one of the most popular areas in the city, for both residents and tourists.
Nyhavn (new port) was built at the end of the 17th century as a canal that allowed direct access to the sea from the old city of Copenhagen. As time passed, it became the area where fishermen and sailors lived and due to the city’s expansion to the sea that eventually absorbed the Nyhavn, it became part of the center of Copenhagen.
The canal is full of bars and restaurants. Although the cuisine in this area is expensive, there is always time to have an espresso or a delicious Vaffelbagerem ice cream.
However, this canal is much more than cuisine, it also offers daily cruises crossing the capital through its channels.
At the beginning of the channel there is an anchor in memory of all the Danish sailors who lost their lives during World War II.
Tivoli is the oldest amusement park in the world, located in the heart of Copenhagen, in the Vesterbro district. It remains practically the same as when it was inaugurated, although modern and increasingly sophisticated attractions have been incorporated over the years, the initial spirit remains intact.
The park is like wonderland, the gardens and attractions are very different from what we are used to see in a modern amusement park.
Denmark is not only Copenhagen, leaving the capital we can find many of the charms Denmark hides. Many of them are in Århus, where the first largest open-air museum in the world and the second largest university in Denmark are.

It opens every day, in winter from 10 to 17 and in summer from 10 to 19. Although it is more worth going in summer since special events are held to recreate the Danish past customs.
