Danish smørrebrød

Things to do in Denmark

Basing themselves in Copenhagen, our specialists ranged across the compact country to find the best ways for you to get to know the true Danish character. They’ve hand-picked the best experiences so you can get to know this compelling country and its capital. We’ve also partnered with the best Danish guides — people who know and love their country and are passionate about sharing it with you.

You might join them in a cooking class where you’ll learn to make smørrebrød, traditional Danish open-faced sandwiches. Or, make the most of being in arguably the most cyclist-friendly city in the world with a private cycling tour of Copenhagen, taking in key sights as your guide shares local insights.
