Things to See and Do in Denmark
Denmark is made up of over 400 islands, so stunning waterways and fjords are part of the landscape here. The largest island is Zealand in the east, where the capital city Copenhagen is located. This city has pastel-coloured buildings, great outside bars, Tivoli Gardens and the must-see statue of The Little Mermaid. Jutland, the large peninsula that borders Germany, is perfect for outdoor pursuits, such as kayaking, hiking and camping. There are also beautiful beaches here, and a rugged coastline to walk along. The large town of Aarhus in East Jutland is full of life and has a choice of museums, Michelin-starred restaurants, unusual architecture and great shops.

A Holiday by Car in Denmark
There is something for everyone in Denmark, from visitors who like art, culture and local food to business travellers who are seeking new ideas. Car rental is cheap and easy with National, and you can add on a satnav to your booking to help you find your way around this beautiful country. Go camping, hostel-hopping or stay in 4-star hotels – there is a wide range of cheap and luxury accommodation in most regions. When driving in Denmark, it's good to know that buses have priority and cyclists often have the right of way. Cycling is very popular and there are many dedicated lanes to look out for. There are no toll roads to worry about, but there are two toll bridges that are quite pricey.
Famous Road Trips to Take in Denmark
One way to make a trip to Denmark memorable is to book car hire and take a leisurely drive across the country. A trip that is recommended for the family is a route that takes you 260km from Copenhagen to the original Legoland in Billund. You will drive across the spectacular 18km toll bridge, which links east and west Denmark, on the way. Stop off in Odense for a while – it's the birthplace of Hans Christian Andersen and there are cobbled streets and Viking history to experience. A driving holiday gives you the freedom to take as long as you like getting from A to B, so you can take life at your own pace.
