Denmark Where should a tourist begin in Denmark?

I hope to travel there within the next few years. Not sure. I have on my list Copenhagen. When I can find out I will post the town that my heritage began. I know it is a small island on the western side of Denmark coast. I do not have the name currently. My Aunt does.

If you are going to Copenhagen (and everyone should go there at least once in their life) then you should also put Helsingör on your list. There you will find Kronborg Slot (castle) - known as Elsinor by Shakespeare buffs. It was the setting for Hamlet and well worth a visit.

The island is called Zealand, Sjælland in Danish. You should go visit Dyrehavsbakken (some just call it bakken, which means the hill)if you want to have fun. Bakken is better than tivoli, I think.

You should visit Rundetårn (which mean the round tower) you can look out over the city from there.

You should also try to sail in the canals. It's cheep. From there you can see all the sightseeings at once and it's a 1½ hour sailing. Try it. In Danish it's called kanalrundfart.

Don't worry, fart means speed here :P

There's 4 5-stars amusementparks in denmark. Tivoli in CPH, Djurssommerland, Fårup Sommerland and Legoland. All worth visiting.

You should go to Legoland! Since the danish were the one who invented Lego, I think every turist should come see the original! You should know that there is a lot of little islands belonging to DK, also worth visiting. Bornholm, is a little island a little away. You have to sail to get there, but It's still a part of little lovely DK(Denmark) :)
