Voyages Jules Verne

Denmark

Denmark is the smallest of the four Scandinavian countries but retains its own unique character and charm. The country is essentially rural, with undulating farmland, windmills and the occasional Viking burial mound. But for most it is the capital city, Copenhagen, with the unimposing yet imperiously iconic Mermaid gazing out across the harbour, that encapsulates the country.

Copenhagen is at once architecturally cutting-edge but also reassuringly old fashioned. Cobbled streets, bearskined soldiers, colourful wooden buildings and cosy cafes mix cheek-by-jowl with bold and angular Scandinavian modernism. It has a sophisticated tone and atmosphere, more synonymous with a small town than a capital city. Of late, Copenhagen has gained a reputation for cuisine of the highest standards and originality – gone are the days of a pickled fish diet.

Away from the capital can be found a number of quaint rural towns offering the visitor not only peace and quiet but also a chance to see traditional Danish life and the chance to delve into Viking myth and history in towns such as Roskilde. The Jutland peninsula lies to the north notable for the runestones at Jelling, and Aarhus known for its association with the Arts as well as many outdoor activities.
