Denmark ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ฐ

Our thoughts on Denmark after touring there in 2017 and 2022.

Strengths: Travelling north from Germany along the western coastline of Denmark we discovered Tonder and Jelling and already we liked Denmark. The countryside of north-western Denmark reminded us of Holland. Copenhagen is a highlight as you would expect so you’ll need a few days. Mind you finding an overnight stop close to the city is not easy. Making our way south through the linked islands for the Rostock ferry we discovered several interesting towns.

Weaknesses: Researching Denmark indicates there are not many stellplatz once your off the main tourist routes. Campsites are relatively easy to find, but theyโ€™re our last resort due to the cost. Anecdotally it appears wild camping is generally discouraged although we found free dedicated parking in Ribe and Hirtshals in 2022.

Opportunities: Denmark sets itself apart from its German neighbour in both culture and architecture. Having found limited places to stay we used farm stays a few time and can definitely recommend them as a cheaper option than some campsite. As we travelled north through Jutland in 2022 we found the marina stops in Aarhus and Aalborg the most convenient.

Threats: Nothing jumps out other than the proliferation of speed cameras. LPG is limited particularly in northern Denmark so plan ahead if you have a pump-in system like ours..
