In the peace and quiet of this little country of Denmark, it’s difficult to imagine barbaric Vikings strutting around with their swords and spears. Tourists of all kinds will find Denmark a great destination with everything from sandy beaches, fjords and coves to scenic country side with ring forts and castles and centuries old monuments to savor. Denmark is best visited during August but April to October is quite acceptable as the weather is hospitable during this time.
Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark and this city is on the islands Amager and Zealand. Copenhagen is famous for houses with spires and copper roofs and this city has even received the nickname as the city of copper roofs. Copnhagen enchants tourists with its cobbled streets and the Little mermaid that can be found at the entrance to the harbor among other things.
The city of Copenhagen is one of the most tourist friendly cities in the world and offers a lot of sights that are of aesthetic or historical value such as parks, monuments, gardens and old build buildings and as every other city famous among tourists does, Copenhagen also has its own amusement park called the Tivoli. The city has a wide network of rail links that are quite inexpensive and provide for an excellent mode of public transport for the tourist as well as the locals.
There are many tours one can take in the city of Copenhagen that includes Vikingland tour which will take you to a Viking ship Museum where samples of ships built by the Vikings are kept.
