Among the places to visit in Denmark is the St. Laurence’s Church. It is located on the northern part of the country.

History suggests that churchgoers in the 18th century actually had to dig their way right through the entrance door in order to enjoy their Sunday service. This church was named after St. Laurence, the patron saint of seafarers. In 1975, it finally gave way to sands, and as of now, only the Church tower is visible.
A newly opened museum, the Maritime Museum of Denmark, located in Helsingor, is a place that you definitely have to visit. It was designed by the very famous architect from Denmark, BjarkeIngels. This museum can bring you down deep underground, seeing the Hamlet’s castle, in Kronborg. This site has been considered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, allowing visitors to enjoy the country’s fascinating maritime history.
How about standing beside actual giants? The ‘Man Meets the Sea’ monumental sculpture by SvendWiig Hansen should be included in your list of places to visit in Denmark. This creation serves as a guard to the West Coast of Denmark, just near Esbjerg. These giants have been attracting visitors since their building in 1995.
For exciting activities, why not stay and witness the championships for champagne opening?
