Denmark is a secret utopia of tidy cities, picturesque countryside, efficient infrastructure and commendable public services, and is a country whose only fault is lack of winter sunshine.
In terms of entertainment, museums, festivals, architecture and shopping will easily distract the most enthusiastic of visitors and for those looking to take it easy, the outdoors offer endless opportunities for country walks and seaside breaks.
Ideal for family vacationers, Denmark is of course home to every kid's dream, Legoland, but there are also several highly rated interactive museums and activity centres geared to keep little ones amused.
Denmark's capital Copenhagen is a remarkable city with well preserved medieval streets, renowned art galleries, Michelin-starred restaurants and a healthy business centre. Finding something to do is never a problem and if all else fails, just admiring the streets with a hotdog in hand is an enjoyable way to spend a few hours.
