Guide to Denmark

Plan ahead

Part of the thrill of visiting Denmark is experiencing the culture and customs. To enjoy these to the full, it’s worth planning ahead to avoid any possibility of worry or hassle when you arrive. This approach is part of the SAS philosophy. We work hard to make sure your trips are as stress-free as they can be. This is why we’ve prepared the following tips and advice.

What to do and see

Denmark may be a small country but there’s a fantastic amount to do and see. There are beaches, amusement parks, wonderful art galleries and world-class museums. There are also fascinating historical sites. Apart from Viking ruins across the country, there are Stone Age tombs on the islands south of Zealand, and Bronze Age bog bodies on Jutland.

Denmark is also renowned for its remarkable architecture both old and modern. Do make a point of seeing some of the churches from the Middle Ages, the Renaissance castles and the beautifully neat 18th century villages. And when you’re in the cities, visit the breathtaking, award-winning modern buildings.

All of this comes in addition to the superb cuisine of Denmark. Whether you eat in the Michelin starred restaurants of Copenhagen or the many other restaurants and cafes throughout the country, you won’t be disappointed in the range and quality of the food.

To help you plan in greater detail, why not use the SAS guides to Copenhagen, Aalborg and Aarhus elsewhere on this website? They highlight specific places to visit and things worth doing.

And if you like the idea of touring in Denmark to absorb as much as you can of the country, don’t forget you can arrange internal flights with SAS. You could spend a few days in Copenhagen, for instance, and then catch an SAS plane to Aalborg or Aarhus. With cheap flights to Denmark on SAS, there is something for everyone.
