Denmark Travel Information


Denmark Flag The Kingdom of Denmark is a country principally located in northern Europe. The Danish mainland, is a peninsula (Jutland) bordered to the South by Germany, that lies between the Baltic Sea and North Sea. The country also includes several islands in the Baltic Sea, a pair of which (Amager and Zealand), connected by bridges, accommodate the Danish capital, Copenhagen. Additionally, the Kingdom also incorporates two offshore territories, namely the Faroe Islands and Greenland. Both of these territories are represented in the Danish parliament, but also have considerable autonomy, and have elected to opt-out of the European Union.

The total population of Denmark, as of 2007, was estimated at 5.5 million. About 1.8 million people live in or close to the Danish capital, Copenhagen.

The economy of Denmark is modern and highly developed (although the economies of the Faroe Islands and Greenland are based on fisheries, and both require financial support from Denmark). Denmark (apart from the Faroe Islands and Greenland) is a member of the European Union, and of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism (ERM), but at present Denmark has not joined the eurozone, and maintains its own currency, the Danish krone (Faroese króna in the Faroe Islands).

    You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when traveling in Copenhagen and throughout the best of Denmark.

    Rick Steves covers the essentials of Copenhagen and the best of Denmark, including Roskilde, Frederiksborg Castle, Legoland, and Ærø Island. Visit Copenhagen's Tivoli Gardens or appreciate the historical, classical architecture of the Cathedral of Our Lady and Copenhagen University. You'll get Rick's firsthand advice on the best sights, eating, sleeping, and nightlife, and the maps and self-guided tours will ensure you make the most of your experience. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves Snapshot guide is a tour guide in your pocket.

    Rick Steves Snapshot guides consist of excerpted chapters from Rick Steves' European country guidebooks. Snapshot guides are a great choice for travelers visiting a specific city or region, rather than multiple European destinations. These slim guides offer all of Rick's up-to-date advice on what sights are worth your time and money. They include good-value hotel and restaurant recommendations, with no introductory information (such as overall trip planning, when to go, and travel practicalities).
