Denmark’s biggest island is Sealand where the capital Copenhagen is located as well. Not many people may know that this island has a lot to offer beside of Copenhagen. The coastline is also called “Danish Riviera” and offers lovely beaches and cosy villages to spend some relaxing days close to the sea.
Beside of the beautiful landscape and fishing villages there are plenty of cultural highlights such as the Karen Blixen house (author who wrote “Out Of Africa”), the Louisiana Museum, one of the most unusual museums of its kind for Danish art.
The city of Helsingør is a picturesque city and the main attraction is the castle Kronenborg. This beautiful castle from the 15th century has been built by Fredrik II. and later on Christian IV. who let it being rebuilt. This castle was also known for its good parties on those years and the King of Denmark had its kingdom on both sides of the water, also the now Swedish side around Helsingborg. The chapel has a very beautiful architecture and an organ from the 18th century.
An architectonic highlight in Helsingør is definitely the Maritime Museum. The museum is build in a dry dock and goes down into the each, a modern and striking masterpiece with a descending floor. There are a lot of interesting things to do for families and it’s very entertaining as well. There can be found a lot of maritime items from old postcards and passports to ship models. There is even a tattoo studio which where people can have their own tattoo with just paint.
A very interesting point of interest is the statue of the “Little Merman” – which is a shiny silver sculpture unlike the famous female equivalent in Copenhagen.
