Regularly voted as "the happiest place on earth" in terms of health and prosperity, Denmark offers a lively mix of centuries-old culture and modern amenities.

In today's Denmark, fierce Viking history and medieval architecture are starkly contrasted with the Denmark of sleek design, a progressive social welfare system, and a tolerant "no worries" attitude.

Top Denmark attractions include its 600-year old capital, Copenhagen offering unique shopping experiences in one of the world's largest pedestrian malls, and the famous fun and enchantment of Tivoli Gardens.

Tourists to the city-by-the-sea must not depart before also getting off a shot of the much-photographed and often vandalized Little Mermaid statue.

More family-friendly attractions? Copenhagen is a kids' travel paradise starting with the Copenhagen Zoo, the Experimentarium science center, and the Children's Museum (tour a Viking ship!) located within the National Museum.

tivoli gardens, mon klint and the old city of Ribe
Major tourist attractions in Denmark include beautiful Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, the dramatic
chalk cliffs at Mons Klint (on the southeast coast) and the city of Ribe - Denmark's oldest.

Other must-sees around Denmark are the Egeskov Castle and grounds; a trip back in time to cobbled streets and half-timbered houses in Denmark's oldest city, Ribe; and the spectacular white chalk cliffs at Mons Klint.

For beer lovers the Carlsberg Visitors Center in Valby offers a bit of history and tasting tours of the national brew.
