Cool and collected Denmark is one of Europe's leading liberal lights. Progressive politics, vibrant café culture, and a fervor for design and creativity pervade the capital of Copenhagen. That's where you're likely to land on cheap flights to Denmark from Australia, which is good news for anyone keen on sipping craft beers in old industrial depots, tasting New Nordic cuisine, and hopping bars in colorful Nyhavn. Break away from the city and the influence of the sea becomes clear. A whopping 4,500 miles of coastline is home to haunting rune stones and burial sites left by the Vikings, there are salt-washed headlands and evocative churches around Bornholm, along with maritime museums and beaches from Roskilde Henne Kirkeby.
The quayside homes of Nyhavn date to the 17th century. These days, they are mostly converted to slick cafes and buzzing bars.
A whole amusement park smack bang in the middle of Copenhagen, the Tivoli Gardens come complete with swashbuckling pirate ships and roaring loop-de-loops.
The Legoland Billund resort is the original Legoland attraction. Entertain the kids here with rollercoasters, miniature villages, and fairground rides.
