Denmark is located on the Jutland peninsula and many islands in the Danish archipelago: Fyn, Zealand, Falster, Lolland, Bornholm, and others. the Kingdom also includes the Faroe Islands and the island of Greenland. Denmark is located southwest of the Scandinavian Peninsula and is separated from Sweden and Norway by straits.
Denmark has several regional air carriers operating regular and charter flights within the country and abroad. For example, Danish Air Transport, from Copenhagen to Bornholm island (flight lasts 40 minutes), to Karup – 50 minutes.
Comfortable and modern Danish trains run right on schedule. S-tog electric trains, adapted for people with disabilities and passengers with strollers or bicycles, run between the center of the capital and the suburbs. Regular regional trains and high-speed Lyn and IC high-comfort trains travel long distances.
The bus service is well developed: you can get anywhere in the country (even to the islands – in this case, ferry crossings are included in the ticket price), and sometimes much faster than by train. With early bookings and choosing night and morning flights, tickets are much cheaper.
Metro and public transport work from 5:00 (Sundays from 6:00) to midnight. There are also night buses that run every half hour from 1:00 to 4:30. They run from the bus station at Radhuspladsen to most urban areas and suburbs. Tickets are common for both metro and buses. Copenhagen is divided into three transport zones.
Hotels in Denmark
Danish hotels are mostly clean, tidy, corresponding to the price category and “stars”: the classification is standard, European, from 1 to 5 *. The largest selection of hotels is in Copenhagen, but decent accommodation can be easily found in any city.
Those who want to plunge into the past prefer historical hotels, equipped in old mansions and even castles, and connoisseurs of modern interiors prefer designer hotels, each of which has its own original concept.
Denmark ski resorts
When choosing a ski resort, many travelers do not even consider Denmark, since they do not even know about the mountain possibilities of this country. However, local regions have enough hills for small descents. Yes, you can’t talk about professional recreation here, but the ski resorts in Denmark are perfect for beginners. The main advantage is that you can ski here all year round. So in the small town of Silkeborg in Jutland, a special nylon track was opened. When there is no natural precipitation, the slopes of the track are artificially moistened. There is a separate slope for children, where you can ride a real sleigh.
The coastline of Denmark is more than 7 thousand kilometers and boasts magnificent sandy beaches. A short summer is not a reason to deny yourself a vacation. There are more than seven hundred beaches in the country, slightly less than half of them are marked with the Blue Flag sign. Denmark’s beaches are very clean and well equipped.
Amager Beach is located near Copenhagen and can be reached by public transport. Funen Island beaches are popular for families. Not far from the town of Esbjerg, there are picturesque beaches surrounded by sand dunes. Falster Island has a beach that has been named the best in Denmark for three years in a row. There is a beach in Sejero Bay, where beginner windsurfers and kiters love to gather.
