Cities in Denmark

Denmark offers a number of charming cities. These are just a handful of the most popular among visitors:

  • Copenhagen (København) — Denmark’s capital and biggest city, with a metropolitan population of 1.2 million and a plethora of cultural activities and fascinating shopping influenced by Danish design traditions.
  • Aalborg — An ancient port town and industrial center with a historic and beautiful city center, notably the boisterous street of Jomfru Ane Gade, which has some of the country’s most lively nightlife.
  • Aarhus — With a population of 300,000 in its metropolitan area, Copenhagen is the biggest city on the Jutland peninsula and Denmark’s second largest city. Aarhus, being an educational center, provides numerous cultural activities as well as a lively and varied nightlife. Aarhus is also a center for food manufacturing and conferences, and it is one of the finest locations to dine in Denmark. One of the country’s most famous attractions is the magnificent Old Town open air museum, which has recreated old historic timber-framed buildings from all around Denmark.
  • Esbjerg — Denmark’s fishing and offshore oil and gas center, and just a 15-minute boat journey from the quaint island of Fanø. Esbjerg is adjacent to the vast Wadden Sea National Park.
  • Nykøbing Falster — You may visit the ancient abbey, the castle, or head off to the magnificent chalk cliffs of Møn or the island’s excellent beaches, which are sheltered by a lovely fjord.
  • Odense — Funen’s major city and Denmark’s third largest city, as well as the birthplace of fairytale writer Hans Christian Andersen. The ancient historic town center has quaint meandering cobblestone alleys with fascinating streetscapes of medieval listed buildings as well as contemporary architecture. The surrounding landscape is particularly interesting, featuring the open-air museum The Funen Village.
  • Roskilde — It is a beautiful city half an hour from Copenhagen, with a world heritage listed church and a fantastic Viking ship museum.
  • Skagen — This quiet fishing village, located at the farthest northern tip of the continent, comes alive during the summer. It’s the location to see two seas collide at the “point of Denmark,” cycle around the beautiful surroundings, and eat delicious seafood. It is one of the most popular summer getaways in the country, especially for the wealthy and famous of Copenhagen.
  • Sønderborg — Discover Danish mindset in a city where Denmark ultimately gave up on its superpower aspirations, and walk around Grsten’s ancient castle or royal palace.

Other destinations in Denmark

  • Anholt — This isolated island, located more than 45 kilometers from the closest mainland and about halfway between Sweden and Denmark, provides the biggest desert in Northern Europe as well as one of Scandinavia’s largest seal populations.
  • Ertholmene —This tiny collection of islands, administered by the Ministry of Defence, comprises Denmark’s most eastern territory and is home to a significant bird sanctuary as well as historic defense facilities.
  • Femø — It is most known for being one of the earliest strongholds of the women’s rights movement, but it today draws lesbians and feminists as well as embracing all women.
  • Fanø — a 16-kilometer-long and 5-kilometer-wide island with an unusually great variety of natural habitats on a small scale: sand, heath, meadow, and pine wood
  • Hirsholm — one of six tiny islands 7 kilometers northeast of Frederikshavn, known for its huge bird population but also for its beautiful beaches and a comparatively significant number of World War II-era bunkers
  • Kongernes Nordsjælland National Park — a fresh new national park encompassing ancient monarchs’ hunting areas
  • Læsø — Get away from it all on this isolated island in Denmark’s “desert belt,” where you can horseback ride through the sand dunes and visit unusual farmhouses with seaweed roofs.
  • Samsø — Denmark’s “greenest” island has lately gained worldwide notice since the island’s heat and electricity usage are entirely generated locally from renewable sources. Samsø is host to the yearly music event Samsø Festival, which bills itself as Denmark’s “hyggeligste” festival (i.e. most cosy).
  • Stevns Cliff — a 65 million year old limestone and chalk cliff that extends over more than 12 kilometers along the coast and rises to 41 meters above sea level
