Flights from Australia to Denmark will disembark at Copenhagen Airport (CPH).
Once the seat of Viking raiders, the Danes are proud of their history and also have a fondness for their monarchy which dates back more than 1000 years. An Australian – now Crown Princess Mary – marrying into the Danish royal family has piqued more interest in this Scandanavian destination. Denmark is the birthplace of Lego and Carlsberg beer; unemployment is low, education is free and the Danes are reknowned to be a happy lot.
With a 7,314 kilometre coastline, you're never far from the water but almost 40 per cent of the population live on one of Denmark's 406 islands: Zealand. Copenhagen is the suave capital of cool. Its understated but beautiful approach to furniture, fashion, architecture and graphic design make this a very attractive place to be. Add excellent transport, helpful locals and many Michelin-starred restaurants and you might stay longer than planned.
Two noteworthy sites accessible on day trips from the capital are near Roskilde – the Viking ship museum and the Lejre Experimental Centre. If you're keen to see more of the country, hiring a car and touring the Margueritruten is recommended. This is a 3,500 kilometre scenic route passing 100 Danish attractions, marked by brown signs with a white daisy.
