Combine two of Denmark's finest cities - Copenhagen and Aarhus

Denmark is most popular for its capital city Copenhagen but you will be surprised at how much more the country has to offer. We have designed a sample itinerary that have you combine the wonderful city of Copenhagen and pair it with Aarhus to create a perfect combination to experience.

Whilst you catch up on all the famous sites in the capital you will then head out by train to Aarhus, a tiny historic city based around three hours north of Copenhagen. Here you will discover some great locations to visit including the ARoS Musuem, some coastal walks, castles, a theme park with the world’s highest freefall ride, and Michelin-starred restaurants. Plenty to keep you entertained!
