While exploring Denmark's picturesque towns and charming villages, you'll feel like you've wandered into a fairy tale. Time appears to stand still among the strikingly colourful houses and traditional architecture, making you realise how Hans Christian Andersen drew inspiration for his renowned stories. In addition to the museum in his hometown of Odense, homage to the most famous of Danes can also be observed throughout Copenhagen, from the iconic Little Mermaid statue to his many lodgings in and around the bustling Nyhavn Harbour. If fairy tales aren't your thing, then why not uncover the Viking roots of Denmark's royalty, experience the drama of Kronborg Castle or unearth 70 million-year-old fossils along the white sandy beaches and chalk cliffs of Møns Klint. And if all else fails, a trip to Billund, the birthplace of those famous brightly coloured building blocks, will unleash the child in everyone!
