Hotels in Denmark

Hotels in Denmark

Copenhagen - not surprisingly – has already been established on the world stage as a popular big city. But explore Aarhus too, the European Culture Capital of 2017. Or stay in one of the lovely old towns along the west coast of Jylland and experience the unique and diverse nature for example in Skagen, Hvide Sande (White Sands) or Ribe. One is always close to the coast in Denmark, and the flat, green country also encourages many to hop on their bikes, which can be hired across the country.

Denmark is a small country, making it possible to visit multiple places on a holiday there. Temperatures are typical of northern Europe, and although summer is the high season, tourism occurs throughout the year. December, for example, is becoming more and more popular for tourists who enjoy Christmas shopping, or simply want to escape in the middle of a busy period.

Moreover, Denmark boasts a large and varied range of hotels, with everything from cabins to campsites to exclusive hotels, so you can find what best fits your own trip to Denmark.

Destinations in Denmark

  • The capital Copenhagen has earnt popularity amongst tourists, whilst also being one of the world’s best cities to live in. Copenhagen is a big city, but is manageable at the same time. It is home to two of the world’s oldest theme parks – one of which, Tivoli, is in the middle of the city – the famous free town of Christiania, as well as countless Michelin restaurants. See our Copenhagen guide here for tips on activities and recommended hotels.
  • Aarhus is Denmark’s second largest city, and is often referred to as 'The City of Smiles' or 'The World’s Smallest Big City'. Aarhus is 2017 European capital of culture, and cultural opportunities abound. The city has made an international name for itself with the art gallery ARoS, and don’t miss out on the modern Moesgaard Museum, located in natural surroundings on the coastline, south of the centre. If you want to stay in the centre, close to good shopping opportunities, restaurants, ARoS, and the living history museum ‘Den Gamle By’ then we recommend the environmentally friendly City Hotel Oasia Aarhus. Right out by the water, and next to a forest, Marselisborg Castle and Memorial park, is Marselis Hotel. See here for all of our hotels in Aarhus.
  • The island of Bornholm, which lies out in the Baltic Sea is unlike any other place in Denmark. It is a small stone island, that in Denmark goes by the name of the “Sunshine Island”. Especially during the summer, tourists flock here, but it always feels calm and peaceful. Partly due to the fact that many tourists choose to get around by hiring bicycles. Smoke houses can be found in every small fishing town, and it is a must to try the dish 'Sol over Gudhjem', whilst enjoying the view out over the beautiful town that the dish is named after. The coastline is dotted with beautiful rocky spoles, and suprisingly one can also find some of northern Europe’s best sandy beaches on the south coast. See for example Hotel Balka Strand.
  • The classic little fishing town Skagen is also a popular destination for Danes. The waves from the Skagerrak and the Kattegat seas hit against each other here, at the furthest north point of Jylland. Fresh fish is served at the harbour, and many attractions are located within short distance: for example, the desert dune Råbjerg Mile, and The Sand-buried Church.
  • Down along Jylland’s west coast, one can find many of Denmark’s most popular beaches. For example in and around Hvide Sande (White Sands), where we have both cabins on the beach and apartment hotels at a Water Park.
  • In southwest Jylland one can experience unique natural formations. The Wadden Sea National Park – Denmark’s largest is found here; a muddy area that floods twice a day. There is a wide variety of wildlife, especially birds. Staying in Ribe offers the experience of Denmark’s eldest town, which is close to the Wadden Sea National Park. From there – when the water is not at its highest - one can take a tractor bus, or drive over to the picturesque Mandø.

What is it like in Denmark?

Denmark always comes out on top in studies on the happiest residents. For some it is hard to understand, as Danes are not especially known for being smiling and open, but do not be fooled. Although it might be hard to see at first, Danes are generally good-natured people, eager to help tourists, whether asked in Norwegian, Swedish or English.

Danish cuisine is best known for smørrebrød. With a base of dark rye bread, different topping combinations are then placed over. It is almost a must to visit a traditional ’pølsevogn’ – hot dog cart – and order a hot dog with everything, although there are just as many shawarma and sushi bars in the city. During recent years, Danish food culture has been given a lift with several world class restaurants, serving so-called 'new nordic food'.

If you are travelling as a family it will not be a problem finding interesting things to do for those of all ages. Many hotels are well equipped for families with young children, and we are happy to help in finding these child-friendly hotels.
