As Europe’s oldest kingdom and birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen, it’s tempting to refer to Denmark as a “fairytale country” – and one of the most iconic sights of the capital, Copenhagen, is The Little Mermaid statue.

Kronborg castle is a sea fort guarding the sound between Denmark and Sweden, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site and supposedly the setting for Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

Islands such as Sealand and Mon – which is also home to the Liselund landscaped park – have sandy beaches, and there is a nudist beach just north of Copenhagen called Bellevue.

Our articles include a green guide to Copenhagen and hints on how to visit on the cheap, as well as how to learn Danish, and insight on what it’s like to live in Denmark as an expat.
