A Virtual Vacation, is a way to daydream and live vicariously through other people's eyes and experiences in the hope that one day you may be able to physically be able to go and enjoy a country for yourselves.
Hopefully you can learn something, discover some hidden gems, and take away some ideas for when you do get there; in real life.

Typically, those have a duration of one month's worth of material in them.

But what about places where you can't really see yourself spending an entire month?
Almost anyone could travel around France or Spain or Italy or Germany, etc. and find plenty to amuse them for a month.
But is there a month's worth of things to do and see in Morocco, for example?

Maybe if you're planning a vacation with a much more relaxed pace. Spend a week here, another nine days there, maybe hang out for five days in a smaller city and really get a feel for local life.

But a Virtual Vacation tends to be splashy. On the move. Lots to do, lots to see. What's next?

With that in mind, I invented a new concept. One location, one big push to find out what makes a place unique and worth visiting.
Then wait for a lull in the geeklists and throw another one in there.

Feel free to do this yourself-- you can feature your own hometown or a location that you know and love, or some other place that you think has visitor appeal but maybe not a month's worth. If you know what I mean.

This mini-vacation will be to the lovely country of Denmark; although mostly on Copenhagen.

If you enjoy this vacation, please comment and add your thoughts and images to any topic that you see.

Denmark is located at the west end of the Baltic Sea, north of Germany and east of Sweden.

Official Travel Guide to Denmark

The major industries on the island are tourism, fishing, farming, and manufacturing. Many pharmaceutical products are produced in Denmark.

Denmark has one of the highest tax burdens in the world. The Value-added Tax (VAT) paid on consumer and commercial services and purchases, is 25%!

But it is a proud country and one of simple beauty.

Danish (or Dansk) is the native language, naturally.
English is widely understood and spoken, luckily.

Much like our Icelandic tour notes, Danish has some funny looking letters (vowels); specifically Æ, Ø and Å (lowercase æ, ø, å )
The letter A on its own is normally “ah” (the a in “Man”) while the letters of Æ make things sound more like “ay” (the a in ‘Ache’); Ø is pronounced more like a long E plus an R; think of the “ir” in “Weird”, and Å sounds like the ‘o’ in “Old”.

There are 40 different vowels sounds, so Danish is one of the most difficult languages to learn and understand...

J sounds like Y (Yet or Yellow) while Y sounds like ooh (Few).



Yes Ja — “Yah”
No Nej —“Nigh”
Thank you Tak
Many thanks Mange tak
Hello Hej — “Hi”
Goodbye Farvel — “Fav-ill” or Levvel — “Lee-ev-ill”

The best time to visit is the warm period from early May to late August/ early September.
High temperatures range from 15 - 20 degrees Celsius, with overnight lows of 7 - 13 degrees.
Expect a fair bit of rain from July to October (see also the "Fun Facts" item in the geeklist below).

Although Denmark is a member of the European Union, the Danes rejected the Euro as their form of currency. They continue to use the krone (crown), which breaks down into 100 øre in coin form.
The plural of krone is kroner.
The international monetary designation for the Danish kroner is "DKK" although you'll see "KR" on signs and price stickers.

Currently (2019) the exchange rate for 1 US$ is approximately 6 DKK, so you divide the Danish price by 6 to get the approximate US$ value.
(1 AUS$ = 4.5 DKK; 1 € = 7 DKK; 1 £ = 8 DKK; 1 CAD$ = 5).

External image

You've got to love a country that has holes in some of their coins!

Credit cards (VISA and MasterCard) are widely accepted.

As mentioned in the first list item, the 25% added sales tax to everything in Denmark makes quite a difference.

Base prices are reasonable, usually, however. A large beer at a club might cost 30 Kr (US$5) while a midrange hotel can cost you 600 – 900 Kr per night for a single room/ double bed.

A midrange meal will cost around 180 – 240 Kr. (US$30 - $40)

Add 25% tax, though, and your $5 beer is $6.25, your hotel goes from $150 to $187.50 and your $30 meal is now $37.50

The Danes are big lovers of Cheese, Breads, and Beer. They also enjoy pastries/ desserts, and being close the sea means that you’ll find plenty of delicious seafood.

The most well-known cheeses are Havarti, Blue, Fontina, and Feta.
The most popular breads are made from Rye and Pumpernickel (darker and typically sweeter than normal Rye bread).

The famous beer from Denmark is Carlsberg Lager. Tuborg is another well-known brand, but I prefer a Faxe (or a Faxe Strong) ale myself.

Risalamande is a family-sized bowl of rice pudding topped with fruit sauce and with a single whole almond mixed in. If you get the serving with the almond then you are lucky (at Christmas time, you'd get a special present or a surprise)

Wienerbrød-- literally "Bread from Vienna". Flaky pastries that we call "Danishes".

Hindbærsnitter are thin cookies around a strawberry filling and topped with a white icing. Think "Pop-tarts", only made with real ingredients.

Here are some "Fun Facts" about Denmark in general

Copenhagen is home to about 600,000 people, but there are about 2 million if you include the surrounding area.
Denmark consists of a series of over 400 islands, most of them small and uninhabited.

The Danish flag is one of the most easily recognizable. It holds the World Record for the oldest continuously used national flag (since 1307AD).

External image


The Danish monarchy is the oldest continuing monarchy in the world and has existed for over 1,000 years.

Denmark was the literary home of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

In Denmark, it rains or snows about every second day. On average, Denmark has 171 days with precipitation of more than 0.004 in. (0.1 mm). In 2009, Denmark had 184 days of precipitation. It is also very windy, and electricity is often generated from wind power turbines.

Denmark has more than twice the amount of bicycles (4.2 million) than cars (1.8 million).

Greenland, which is closer to North America than it is to Europe, is a territory of the Kingdom of Denmark.

Denmark actually has a place to surf called Cold Hawaii, and it is one of the best beaches in Scandinavia for surfing.

External image


Probably the world’s most popular toy, LEGO, comes from Denmark. It is an abbreviation of two Danish words— leg godt— meaning “play well.” Over 320 Billion bricks have been sold since it was introduced in 1958.

About two-thirds of all Danes have a surname ending in –sen.

Danish polar explorer and anthropologist Knud Rasmussen was the first European man to cross the Northwest Passage (in the Canadian Arctic) by dog sled.

Denmark has many cities and towns not named Copenhagen, but they aren't very well-known.

One that you may have heard about is Aarhus/ Århus.

Den Gamle By is an area of town with 75 authentic historic buildings and a large cast of “re-enactors”; a gateway to Danish social history since the 1700s – and a fun day out.

The attraction creates living snapshots of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries and lets you interact with the period as much as possible.

The Domkirke is an impressive brick cathedral with a beautiful interior.

Eat, drink, shop, and party in The Latin Quarter, named after the more famous Paris attraction.

The queen (Margrethe II) has a palace on the grounds of Marselisborg Mindepark but you can visit it if she's not there.

A bit further afield, the coastal village of Ebeltoft is a 45-minute day trip that takes you through the Mols Berge National Park.

External image


Receiving its municipal charter at the start of the 14th century, Ebeltoft is the oldest market town on the Djursland Peninsula.
You'll take loads of pictures in this area, guaranteed.

Before we get to Denmark's capital city, I simply must include a listitem about its most famous export to the world.

External image


As many of you already know, the original LEGO Land was started in Denmark.
As you travel by road north from Germany (the Hamburg area) you reach a point where the road goes west or east. East will eventually take you through Middelfart (sometimes I'm like a 12-year old boy-- sue me!) laugh and onward toward Odense and eventually to Copenhagen.
West gets you to the coastal town of Esbjerg, but starting eastward and then cutting north again brings you to Vejle where you head back around to the west and over to the Legoland Billund Resort.

External image


Or you could also fly directly to the nearby airport. That's right; Legoland is so popular that they can sustain an airport for the region.

You can stay at a hotel right close to the site (just over $200 per night for a single room; add more per child along for the stay)

If you plan to stay for a day or two in the area, then one of those two towns mentioned earlier is probably a fine choice to look for more reasonably-priced accomodation.

You'll have to look far to the right side of the map-- almost in the big purple area of Sweden-- to find Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark.

External image


External image

Copenhagen: One of the prettier cities in the world

The city-- also known as "Greater Copenhagen" or Storkøbenhavn-- is divided into 9 districts. One of those, Frederiksberg, is actually an independent town (centered around the Frederikborg Castle) completely surrounded by the rest of Copenhagen and with its own municipal government.

External image


In the map above you can see the location of the airport (district of Amager) as well as a ferry terminal (to/from Oslo, Norway) on the right side in the district of Østerbro.
Various train lines snake out from the central districts of Vesterbro and Indre by to the suburbs.
You might also notice a series of major roads. They are designated "E", "O", or just numbered. E roads are "European Routes", eventually leading to other countries. O roads are ring roads, although Copenhagen hasn't got a full ring since it is surrounded by water on the east side.
The numbered roads are just the main thoroughfares within the city or leading to another Danish town or city.

If you are driving to Denmark then you'll likely be coming from Hamburg, Germany to the main part of Denmark, called Jutland. There is a road (#8) that connects to a ferry crossing the the Baltic Sea (a strait called Sydfynske Øhav), cutting off a fair bit of distance travelling north and around the Little Belt sea, but like most ferry ports in the world, it's bound to be slower in the end.
You will eventually have to be on the E20 road on the center island of Funen, and there is a bridge on that road crossing "The Great Belt" seaway to get you to the island (Zealand-- Danish: Sjaelland) that Copenhagen is on.

External image

The Great Belt Bridge: Funen to Zealand

There are also several trains that take you there from Germany, and on to Sweden as well.

The two things that most people know about Copenhagen are related: The author Hans Christian Andersen and The Little Mermaid statue

External image


What you might not know is that it is quite small, and you can walk right up to it. Assuming there aren't already 1,000 people there in front of you:

External image

It's been voted "One of the World's most disappointing landmarks"

The Danish name for the statue, by the way, is "Den Lille Havfrue".
If you do want to experience it for yourself, you should go to the district of Østerbro, which is considered to have the most "posh" residences and surroundings, with eye catching architectural styles.

Also while you are there you can also visit the nearby Kastellet, which is a star-shaped walled citadel surrounded by moats/ canals.

External image

Kastellet

The district of Christianshavn, not too far south, is home to the waterside Copenhagen Opera House, and also the Royal Library-- colloquilly known as "The Black Diamond"-- photo opportunities of their own.
Since you're here, climb up the circular stairs on the outside of the church spire of the Church of Our Saviour. It has always been regarded as something of a manhood test to climb up and touch the globe on the summit, nearly 100 meters up in the air.

External image


South of Christianshavn is Amager (also where the airport is). It's sort-of split up into three parts; the Eastern part is modern and has plenty to see and do, while the other two parts are a bit more industrial.
You might think that a public square called Amagertorv might be located in Amager, but it's not. It's in Indre By!

External image

The hustle & bustle in Amagertov Square

Also in this district are the very popular Tivoli Gardens.

The Tivoli Gardens (and amusement park)

Rumor is that Walt Disney visited here and decided to build Disneyland afterwards.

Frederiksberg is considered to be a "must-see" district. Not only does it have the Copenhagen zoo, and an enormous park and garden, but the castle is a huge tourist draw.

External image

Frederiksborg Castle

External image

External image

The Palace and Gardens

Nørrebro is the most multiculural district, sometimes nicknamed "Little Arabia". Visiting the funky shops, enjoying cheap food, and mixing with the local people is a good way to kill an afternoon. Vesterbro is the "hip" place to live and work.
The Northern Suburbs and Vestegnen are not very touristy at all, athough there are some museums and golf courses/ parks dotted around these districts.

Staying on the main E20 road (whch passes the airport, called Kastrup), just to the south of Copenhagen itself is another smaller island (well-connected with short bridges) that will take you to a much more spectacular tunnel and bridge that crosses over to Malmö, Sweden. It is a toll bridge/ tunnel, however, so have your wallet ready.

Headed to Sweden? Why not drive?

That does it for me, but do you have any of your own thoughts that you would like to share or even a listitem of your own featuring a different part or a different aspect of Denmark?

Maybe you live in Denmark and could give us a short summary of what life is like there (and pictures are always nice to see on a Virtual Vacation...).
Or maybe you've already visited and can tell us about something that you saw or did, or ate, or stayed, that was really enjoyable (or not so enjoyable/ overpriced).
A firsthand account, good or bad, is always appreciated.

You can also leave a comment on the main list, or on any previous item, about whether or not you'd like to go to Denmark some day and what you'd like to see. If you know about a festival or some attraction that isn't as well-known then here's your chance to get creative and to share!

By far the most unique and incredible experience I had when I visited Denmark was checking out Kronborg Castle in Helsingør, the castle in which Shakespeare set his play Hamlet.

During the summer, they perform Hamlet inside the castle! You have to follow the actors from room to room! If you're a Shakespeare purist, the show might probably not be for you; the language has been condensed and simplified for the tourist crowd. But I think every other production I'll ever see will pale in comparison with this one!
