Don’t Dis Denmark

Denmark can be one of the most exciting places to visit on vacation, depending on what you’re into. Take a closer look at why Denmark is quickly becoming a top travel destination.

Why Travel to Denmark?

Denmark is really cool, literally. Because of it’s northern location it sports an average temperature of only 60 degrees Fahrenheit in August! This means that if you’re into being cold, it’s a good place to visit. The winters average around 32 degrees Fahrenheit in January.

Another interesting element of Denmark’s location is the amount of sunlight it receives. In summer, the sun can rise as early as 4:00 a.m. and stay up till 10:00 p.m., while in the winter, you may only see sun from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (unfortunate if those are your work hours!).

Denmark is one of the greenest countries in the world. The Danish government has made the preservation of the environment one of the most important issues. Because of these national policies, they have some of the cleanest cities in the world, and the air is fresh and crisp nearly everywhere. Denmark has also offered families tax exemption if they could generate their own electricity using wind turbines. Many people have elected to go this route, because it not only saves them money, it is good for the environment. Wind power also is used by many business as well.

Denmark is filled with all kinds of interesting small cities. Of the 20 largest cities in Denmark, only six cities have a population of over 100,000. This means that in almost any part of the country, you can find interesting cities that will have historical value, interesting attractions and a relaxed attitude towards visitors.

Still don’t have the urge to travel to Copenhagen? The last reason to visit Denmark is simple. The people who live there are the happiest in the world. It only takes one visit to find out why. Why not give it a chance on your next vacation. Who knows, you may travel to Denmark for a vacation, but end up staying longer than you had planned!

    You got the climate wrong.

    Instead of average temperaures you should consider daytime temperatures, which are usually above freezing the whole year. And the standard daytime temperature in August is 68F.

    There is ususlly not falling that much snow – and it mostly soon melts. Only about once or twice each decade do we get real snow for any significant length of time. Skiing is far from a national passtime and ski jumping is all but impossible due to the general flatness of the country (in addition to the lack of snow). If skiing is your thing you should rather go to Norway.
