Denmark is a popular holiday destination for Scandinavians as well as those from further afield. The country's major airports receive domestic flights from Denmark and the rest of Scandinavia, along with international arrivals from Europe, North America and Asia.
Copenhagen, the Danish capital, has two airports, Kastrup and Roskilde. Copenhagen Airport Kastrup is the larger and busier of the two and convenient for those coming from Malmö and southern Sweden, as well as in Copenhagen. Cheap flights make the city is the perfect place for a budget break, and there are activities for all tastes, whether it's thrills at the Tivoli amusement park or a leisurely sightseeing cruise on the canals.
The second-largest city in Denmark is Aarhus, which has its own small airport 25 miles (40 kilometres) away. Arts, culture, history and shopping are all part of the experience in Aarhus, where historic buildings rub shoulders with modern architecture.
Billund Airport is served by a number of airlines. Some visitors arriving at Billund go to Aarhus, 60 miles (95 kilometres) away, but the main attraction in Billund is the original Legoland theme park connected to the airport, where kids and adults alike can enjoy the rides and the jaw-dropping sculptures made from thousands of small, plastic bricks.
