Denmark may be compact, but it’s rich in art, culture, elegant architecture, cutting-edge design, and the Scandinavian sense of hygge, a feeling of contentment and wellbeing. This could be pastries and coffee in a favorite Copenhagen café, sampling craft beers with friends in colorful canalside Nyhavn, or a sunshine-filled day in the enchanting Tivoli Gardens amusement park.
Luxury cruises to Denmark take you to Copenhagen, the cool, cosmopolitan capital, and the seaside town of Skagen, perched on the northern tip of the Jutland peninsula. Experience culture, cuisine, and shopping in Copenhagen, and in Skagen, embrace vast skies and sandy beaches, rolling countryside, and a thriving art scene. Explore Denmark in luxury on a European cruise with Celebrity Cruises.
Copenhagen is known for its edgy, eclectic culinary scene, with several Michelin-starred restaurants to try. Visit Market Hall to try fish cakes and smørrebrød, open-face rye topped with pickled herring or roast beef, downed with a glass of snaps, or aquavit. Sample hot dogs and meatballs from street food stalls, and explore the many cafés in search of the best cinnamon pastries. Denmark has a great craft beer industry, too, with microbreweries all over the country.
Denmark has one of the oldest monarchies in Europe, and it’s studded with magnificent palaces and castles. In Copenhagen, admire Amalienborg Palace, home of the royal family, and Christiansborg Palace, the seat of Parliament. The 16th-century fortified Kronborg Castle features as Elsinore in Shakespeare’s Hamlet, while the grand Frederiksborg Castle is home to the Museum of National History. From Skagen, visit Voergaard Castle, which showcases beautiful renaissance design and a valuable art collection.
The fishing town of Skagen, where vast skies meet blue seas and endless white sands, has been famous for its artistic community since the late 19th century. Visit the Skagens Museum to admire impressionist-inspired works and intricate portraits of local people, and tour the home of two notable painters. In Copenhagen, feast your eyes on stylish Danish design, from chic-but-casual clothing to covetable retro furniture, home items, lighting, and contemporary, Viking-inspired jewelry.
Cruises to Denmark last 12 days and sail round-trip from either Southampton or Amsterdam. Itineraries explore the best of Scandinavia, stopping in Copenhagen and Skagen, along with Helsinki, Stockholm, Tallinn, and Visby. Some itineraries may also call at Oslo or Warnemünde in Germany.
On a Denmark cruise with Celebrity, you’ll enjoy the comforts of a sophisticated, contemporary ship during your Scandinavian adventure. On Edge-series ships, enjoy craft cocktails in the leafy, light-filled lounge, Eden, or celebrate the long, light summer evenings with dinner in the Rooftop Garden.
