The Best Travel Experiences

A Day (and Night) at Tivoli: These 150-year-old pleasure gardens are worth the airfare to Copenhagen all by themselves. They offer a little bit of everything: open-air dancing, restaurants, theaters, concert halls, an amusement park -and, oh yes, gardens as well. From the first bloom of spring until the autumn leaves start to fall, they're devoted to lighthearted fun. The gardens are worth a visit any time but are especially pleasant at twilight when the lights begin to glint among the trees. See chapter 4.

A Week Down on the Farm: The best way to see the heart of Denmark and meet the Danes is to spend a week on one of their farms. Nearly 400 farms, all over the country, take in paying guests. Stick a pin anywhere on a map of Denmark away from the cities and seacoast, and you'll find a thatched and timbered farm, or perhaps a more modern homestead. Almost anyplace makes a good base from which to explore the rest of the country on day trips. You join the host family and other guests for meals. You can learn about what's going on at the farm, and pitch in and help with the chores if you like. Activities range from bonfires and folk dancing to riding lessons or even horse-and-buggy rides. Although there's no official agency to arrange such holidays, many visitors seeking this kind of offbeat accommodation often surf the Internet for farms that advertise their willingness to receive guests. Another way to hook up is to decide what part of Denmark you'd like to be located in, then contact the nearest tourist office that keeps a list of farms willing to accept paying guests.

On the Trail of the Vikings: Renowned for 3 centuries of fantastic exploits, the Vikings explored Greenland to the north, North America to the west, and the Caspian Sea to the south and east from roughly a.d. 750 to 1050. Their legacy lives on in Denmark. Relive the age at the Nationalmuseet in Copenhagen, which displays burial grounds of the Viking period, along with the largest and richest hoards of treasure, including relics from the "Silver Age." Even Viking costumes are exhibited. At Roskilde, explore the Viking Ship Museum, containing five vessels found in a fjord nearby, the largest of which was built in Ireland around 1060 and manned by 60 to 100 warriors. At Jelling, see two enormous mounds (the largest in Denmark), one of which was originally the burial ground of King Gorm. And if you're in Ribe, check out the Museum of the Viking Age, where a multimedia room, "Odin's Eye," introduces the visitor to the world of the Vikings through a vivid sound and vision experience. See chapters 4, 5, and 9.

In the Footsteps of H. C. Andersen: To some visitors, this storyteller is the very symbol of Denmark itself. The fairy tale lives on in Odense, on the island of Funen, where Andersen was born the son of a shoemaker in 1805. His childhood home, a small half-timbered house on Munkemllestrde, where he lived from 1807 to 1817, has been turned into a museum. You can also visit the H. C. Andersen's Hus, where much of his memorabilia is stored (including his walking stick and top hat), and take a few moments to listen to his tales on tape. But mostly you can wander the cobblestone streets that he knew so well, marveling at the life of this man--and at his works--that, in the words of his obituary, struck "chords that reverberated in every human heart," as they still do today. See chapter 8.

    Frommer's Denmark

    Useful for planning four days in Copenhagen. Frommer's always does a good job! This is preferred to the competitors' books because it covers all price ranges, is organized, is up-to-date and much more comprehensive.
