Denmark

Country Facts

Land of Lego bricks, Roskilde, the largest open-air music festival in Europe and legendary children's storyteller Hans Christen Andersen, Denmark has some of the most unspoiled natural landscapes in Europe. Ancient castles and Viking forts dot the countryside, while vibrant cities dish out some of the most progressive policies and sleekest designs in the world.

Gentle hills, deserted, sandy beaches and three islands, make up this creative, cultured land. To get under the Danish skin read Kierkegaard's philosophical works, listen to the pop group Aqua and watch 'Idiots' by Lars Von Trier.
