Denmark might be a small country by land but Denmark certainly fills any travellers cultural interests with grand historic values. Denmarks archaeological treasures dates back to the Eem interglacial period to the fascinating history of the Viking Age and beyond.
One of the most prolific Viking chieftains, Holger Danske (Olgier the Dane), now resting in his chamber at Kronberg Castle, is embraced as Denmarks historic and legendary heroes. There are many legendary sagas of Olgier the Dane as a Knight of Charlemagne, his battles against Saracen giants and inheriting his sword by Arthurian knight, Tristan. You simply cannot visit Denmark without visiting Kronberg Castle which is on the UNESCO World Heritage Sites list.

The Danes have an impeccable talent for the grand design of things. Whether it’s architectural or interior, danes have truly perfected the art of dimensional design and have an impressive ensemble of architectures and interior designs to show for it.
The Grundtvig Church, an expressionist design with Gothic architecture is one in many of Denmark’s structural masterpieces.
Travelers with a love for art, architecture and design will find everything their heart desires in this small culturally rich country.
Denmarks shores and famous “chalk” cliffs are also very popular among visitors to Denmark.
Møns Klint, a 6km stretch of cliffs made of chalk overlooking an aqua blue transition to the deep blue sea is a natural landmark that sets itself aside with uniqueness from many other beautiful coastlines.
