Denmark is a Scandinavian country comprising the Jutland Peninsula and numerous islands. It’s linked to nearby Sweden via the Öresund bridge. Copenhagen, its capital, is home to royal palaces and colorful Nyhavn harbor, plus the Tivoli amusement park and the iconic “Little Mermaid” statue. Odense is writer Hans Christian Andersen’s hometown, with a medieval core of cobbled streets and half-timbered houses.
We visited Copenhagen Denmark in the summer of 2016 while cruising through Europe on a Scandinavian Cruise (Princess Cruises, Emerald Princess). We explored the Rosenborg Castle, Christianborg Palace and the Amalienborg Palace, visited the Little Mermaid statue and cruised through the canals of Copenhagen.
