Camping in Denmark
102 in Denmark
The gateway to Scandinavia, Denmark is known as the country of fine dining, Lego and Hans Christian Andersen. Its upbeat capital, Copenhagen was once a Viking fishing village and is now the cultural and economical centre of the country, a hub of activity with busy cafés, fascinating museums and a thriving live music scene.
Camping in Denmark offers the best of Danish culture; there’s Funen with its pastoral feel, Zealand with its historic castles and manors and Jutland with its moors and fjords, not to mention the wild, windswept Faroe Islands.
Funen is the smaller of the two main islands and location of Odense, Hans Christian Andersen’s birthplace. It is in the island’s picturesque scenery that the author found inspiration for many of his fairytales, and a local museum invites visitors to celebrate his work. Continuing on the theme of great fiction, Denmark’s largest island, Zealand, is the setting of Kronborg Castle, a 16th century fortress and home to Prince Hamlet.
The Jutland coastline is shaped by the ferocious North Sea and offers a spectacular natural environment with bays, heathland and forests that are home to a variety of birdlife. If you’re camping in Denmark for a real back-to-nature experience, this is the island to do it.
