Traditionally the Danish Christmas tree is the common spruce type, also known as Norwegian spruce. In more recent time, the common spruce has made way for the Normann spruce as it lasts a bit longer and results in fewer scattered needles on your living room floor by New Year's Eve.
Families fortunate enough to live close to the woods try to pick and cut their own tree. But of course, most Danes have to buy their Christmas tree just around the corner.
The whole of Denmark gets into the festive spirit this time of year. Towns and cities around Denmark, such as Aarhus and Odense, are ablaze with Christmas lights and good cheer. Christmas markets, exhibitions, music in the streets; Christmas in Denmark is truly magical.
New Nordic cuisine has really boosted Denmark's status as gourmet food capital of Scandinavia, and this year Denmark is home to 28 Michelin Stars at 24 star-studded restaurants. You can read all about Denmark's Michelin-starred restaurants in the recently published Michelin Nordic Cities Guide.

The landscape in Mols Bjerge Nationalpark was created by gigantic ice tongues and tons of water, which has resulted in tall peaks with great views, deep dead ice holes and spectacular wildlife. When having explored the many opportunities in the nationalpark, you can walk the cosy streets of Ebeltoft with their cobblestones and half-timbered houses covered in hollyhocks.
