Every traveler is charmed by the cultural and historical richness of Denmark, shaped among other things by the legendary Viking culture. You will undoubtedly be seduced by the beauty of the Danish countryside but also by the kindness, sympathy and warm welcome of its inhabitants. Take the time to discover this flat country with 1000 panoramas by renting bicycles and taking the many cycle paths and bucolic roads that run along the seaside. Calm, friendliness, gentleness and dynamism of its capital are the main qualifiers of Denmark.
