What To Do On Your Holidays In Denmark
Famous for its Viking ship, Denmark has become known as an oasis in Europe. With its beautiful and astonishing treasures of nature, Denmark is rapidly becoming a must visit holiday destination. When visiting Denmark, you will experience their history and culture. Although it is the smallest Scandinavian country, Denmark is full of castles, museums, historic towns, Viking sites, white sandy beaches, and many unspoiled islands to be explored by nature enthusiasts.

Let us start with the well-known Aalborg tower. The tower is a modern building and is a popular attraction for people of all ages. The main appeal of the tower is the spectacular views of the North Jylland countryside and the Limfiord to the north of the city. It is the perfect place to visit on a fine day, as the views extend as far as the North Sea and as Far East as the Katteegat. The tower has a whole load of facilities ranging from a kiosk to a cafe and restaurant that will surely satisfy every visitors needs.

For those interested in Denmark's religious establishment, the Aaby Kirke is a highly recommended attraction. It is a popular church with one long nave, three-sided chancel at the east, and a west-end tower. The Church has an old world origin as it was built in 1872 and 1873 as a replacement for a previous Romanesque church. The inside designs are one of a kind, it features an unusual red and yellow brickwork to produce a stripped effect in the walls.

How about touring around the world's renowned Tivoli Gardens? The Tivoli Garden is much more than just a central city park. This relatively small area in the heart of the city is actually one of the world's most thrilling entertainment complexes. The Tivoli Lake reflects the incredible trademark fireworks display that light up the sky over the gardens twice a week. The garden is a romantic place for lovers who want a nice and relaxing walk.

Those looking for a different kind of holiday should try checking out the intriguing Erotica Museum. The museum exhibits erotic paintings, postcards, photos, films, magazines, sculptures, sex toys and many sensual objects. It was established 30 years ago when Denmark first liberalized pornography. The Museum showcases serious erotic themes. It traces erotic history from ancient times to the present day. The museum, besides its name, works and demonstrates erotic themes in a higher sense of knowledge.

Another great hotspot is the Veile town. The town has a perfect combination of historical sites along with the modern setting. It is a popular town known for the forested hills that rise up to the north and south of the town and fjord. The town is an ideal place for a nice walk and bicycle tours as the surrounding hills and valleys are just nearby. The Put and Take Lake is also a major attraction in the town. Also, the St. Nikolai's Church from the mid 13th century can be visited in the town.
