Despite its small size, Denmark has a lot to offer tourists, so you should already include it in your list of possible destinations. The spectacular natural landscapes, the enormous historical and cultural heritage and the many tourist activities that you can do here are just some of its attractions. Of course, if you plan to travel to this Scandinavian country, do not focus only on Copenhagen. There are many places that are worthwhile!
To prove it, today at Vuela Viajes we are going to tell you about some of the most beautiful towns in the whole country. Would you like to join us?
We are going to start our tour of Denmark by Ribe, which is considered to be the oldest town in the whole country. Located in the south of Jutland , a peninsula with enormous appeal, Ribe maintains its charm and architectural unity. In fact, its churches and monuments remain intact. In addition, some typical Danish elements that have disappeared elsewhere are preserved here. The most remarkable building is the Cathedral. As a curiosity, this town was one of the first in the country to be Christianized.
Located on the island of Ero, Ærøskøbing is undoubtedly one of the most picturesque places in all of Denmark. Here you will find cobbled streets, a beautiful square and romantic 18th century houses with colorfully painted doors. In addition, you will love the vibrantly colored beach huts located on the shores of the town.
We return to the Jutland peninsula to tell you about Ebeltoft, a well-preserved town that is considered the capital of the mountainous region of Molst. Its curiously crooked wooden houses, its cobbled streets and its local craft shops stand out. Also, it is important to note that here you can visit the Jylland 1860 frigate, the oldest warship in the country.
Located at the gates of Copenhagen, Dragør remains practically intact. And it is that this old fishing village (it had been one of the most important fishing ports in the country) preserves its narrow and cobbled streets and its colorful houses from the 18th century covered with straw or red tiles. Best of all, you can get there on foot from the Danish capital. On the other hand, you should know that every August a festival is held that celebrates its important seafaring past.
Nor could Skagen be missing from this list, a spectacular coastal town located in the northernmost point of Denmark. Due to its unique location and natural beauty, it attracts many tourists and artists. In fact, today you can find numerous art galleries, as well as hosting the house-museum of the poet and painter Holger Drachmann. In addition to its beautiful beach, the town stands out for its bustling port.
Another place that cannot be missing from this list is Maribo, a picturesque town located on the island of Lolland that dates back to the 15th century. It is known for its unique lakeside location as well as its jazz festival . Without a doubt, it is the ideal place to enjoy nature and music in its purest form.
Situated on the Baltic island of Bornhol, Svaneke is very close to Sweden. In this fishing community, the cobbled streets host beautiful colored wooden houses that reach a beautiful and bustling port . You will love its circular Romanesque church, its beautiful windmills and the Water Tower, a tank with an extra shape.
Knowing that we left many beautiful villages in the pipeline, we are going to end our tour of Denmark by telling you about Saksun, a small town located in the Faroe Islands. Surrounded by high mountains, it has a museum and a beautiful church. Of course, what is most striking are the roofs of the houses, covered with grass.
