Be an Explorist in Denmark

Leave the bucket list at home and become an Explorist in Denmark instead. Take the scenic route, step into unfamiliar territory and get lost in the Land of Everyday Wonder – you never know what gem you might stumble across. Get to know our quirks, customs, different towns and neighbourhoods – not to mention our extraordinary food scene. So what are you waiting for? It's time to explore Denmark!

How to find wonder in the things you see

It might happen while you're cycling with Danes in Copenhagen for the first time. Or watching the black sun murmurations over the Wadden Sea National Park. We have plenty of things to do and see in our little Danish island. Need a starting point? These are the unique and unusual things to do in Denmark!

Heading into the city or into the wild?

If you're thinking of starting in our capital, Copenhagen, here's a handy guide for things to do in each distinct neighbourhood. If it's the peace of our nature you're after, we've gathered all the highlights to do here for you too!

Danes heart design!

From iconic buildings to world-famous furniture, seeing the way design is blended into Danish life is a good way to re-focus on the simplicity and beauty of daily life. In other words, come and stare at pretty things. There's plenty to see and do!
