Scandinavian charms on the shores of Denmark

The Kingdom of Denmark draws travelers to its charming Scandinavian towns, colorful harbors, picturesque islands and lavish castles and palaces. Sitting on a peninsula, the country is almost entirely surrounded by water, so there's no shortage of scenic coastline and summertime fun. Whether you head to the capital city of Copenhagen for culture immersion or spend a relaxing holiday on the west coast with incredible views over the North Sea, you'll find a Denmark vacation rental that suits your vacation style. Once you've booked your stay, it's off to admire stunning gardens or take the kids to action-packed theme parks.

Things to do

Exploring Denmark's royal grounds

If your Denmark vacation rental is near Copenhagen, you'll want to spend some time exploring the top sites in the capital city. Tivoli Gardens is a popular stop for the whole family to enjoy, with an aquarium and all sorts of entertaining rides and games available. The picturesque setting is full of colorful flowers and grassy spots for lounging. With both the Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces in the city, you'll have your fill of royal history, while the Renaissance Frederiksborg Castle, just outside of town, offers guided tours of its museum, filled with paintings and an assortment of historic artifacts.


Touring Denmark by bike and boat

Sightseeing tours are a great way to immerse yourself in the culture of this Scandinavian gem, with all sorts of different options offered around the capital city. Copenhagen is a bike-friendly town, so plenty of cycling excursions are available. Alternatively, opt for walking tours that will lead you to some of the top culture highlights of the city. Guided boat rides along the canal are a great way to enjoy the outdoors in summer, while snapping photos of the famous colorful buildings that line the waterway. You can also grab a canoe or kayak to paddle around on your own.


Springing into the warm season in Denmark

Spring and summer bring life and color to Denmark, as the warmer temperatures invite visitors to the city for bike rides and festivals. You can expect average summer highs in the 60s here, perfect for cycling or hopping on boat rides along the colorful canals, while evenings stay cool enough to call for sweaters. The peak months of July and August bring the most travelers, especially to the capital city, so be sure to book your Denmark vacation rental early, if you plan to visit in summer. The spring months, although a bit chilly, offer a reprieve from crowds.

Natural features

Off to the islands and parks of Denmark

Denmark's peninsula location means lots of gorgeous coastline to explore, on hikes or boat rides, with everything from soaring sea cliffs to sandy beaches along the water. A series of offshore islands, including the remote Faroe Islands, can be reached by ferry or plane. A couple of parks on the west coast of Denmark offer perfect spots to enjoy some of the coastal scenery. The National Park to the north is full of lakes and sand dunes, while Wadden Sea National Park, a large habitat of marshes and islands, gets regular visits from seal species and migrating birds.
