Denmark

Sail down the beautiful rivers

Overview

If Denmark has a pop symbol, it must be the bicycle. The two-wheeled wonder has steered itself into Danish consciousness during the oil crisis, usurping physical and cultural space from the automobile. Somewhere in the midst of Danish art, music, poetry and film one will most likely find a bicyclist – a symbol of freedom, health, and positive energy.

Denmark’s origins are in its Viking past and it reached its crescendo between the 13th and 17th century, after a series of relinquishments and lost battles diminished its territory. While Denmark capitulated during World War II, the Danish Resistance helped several thousand Jews escape Germany and funneled them to safety in Sweden.

Denmark has three UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the Jelling archaeological relics, Roskilde Castle and Krongborg Castle. Hans Christian Andersen, the legendary writer is probably Denmark’s most famous citizen and the Little Mermaid is immortalized in Copenhagen’s consciousness, while Karen Blixen, who wrote Out of Africa, has her own house-museum.
