Denmark is a beautiful country with lots of great, long and wide beaches along the North and the Baltic Sea. We thought, that this sounds like a great destination to visit and get around in 3 weeks.

We had a plan! From Germany into Denmark up the west coast all a long the North Sea. First stop was the island Römö. It’s the island north of Sylt, with great and wide beaches. During daytime you can drive your car on the beach and park for the day right by the sea. At night you will have to find a place to camp on the mainland. It was lots of fun, watching wind- and kite surfer.

For the night we stayed in a beautiful little old town called Ribe. The following day we continued our trip along the coast to Nordjütland, Jammerbugten, the north of Denmark. We stayed in Lönstrup. Time for walks and no car! Take a walk through the nature park and visit the Rubjerg Knude Lighthouse. It’s a must see! 10 days we toured around the north to Hjörring, Hirtshals, and Skagen. Skagen is a beautiful town with great restaurants and shops. It’s the spot where the North Sea meats the Baltic Sea. Again a must see.

A couple days later we followed the roads south a long the Baltic Sea to Aarhus, Kolding, Odense and stayed at the island Fyn. The landscapes and beaches on Fyn are different to the areas we have seen before. Still with beautiful little bays and beaches.

The next days we spent on the island Sjaelland, that’s where Copenhagen is located. Take your time for sightseeing, and visit Helsingör with the Kronborg castle, Frederiksborg castle in Hilleröd, the Viking museum in Roskilde, or the church in Kalundborg. After all the driving and touring around it’s time for Copenhagen, an amazing beautiful city, very pulsing, with great restaurants, bars, art galleries, museums, and good shopping. Spent three to four days in Copenhagen and make new friends.

After staying a couple days Copenhagen it was time to relax and Falster was the place. It was the last region we toured before we took the ferry in Rödby back to Puttgarden, Germany.
