City of Beautiful Towers

Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen has morphed into the cultural, political, and economic powerhouse of the country.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Nyhavn and Stroeget. National Museum of Denmark and National Gallery of Denmark will appeal to museum buffs. Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Rosenborg Castle, wander the streets of Christiania, pause for some photo ops at The Little Mermaid, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Frederiks Kirke (Marmorkirken).

City of Smiles

Located on the sea, Aarhus blends a world city with a small-town feel. Home to a young population, the city has a reputation for producing internationally known pop and rock musicians.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Helligaandskirken and Risskov Kirke. Do some cultural sightseeing at Den Gamle By and Moesgaard Museum. Step out of Aarhus with an excursion to LEGOLAND Billund in Billund--about 1h 15 min away. There's lots more to do: engage your brain at Botanical Garden and the Greenhouses, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Elev Kirke, see the interesting displays at Kunsthal Aarhus, and get your game on at Eventhall.

To find ratings, maps, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Aarhus online road trip planner.

Traveling by car from Copenhagen to Aarhus takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can fly; or take a train. December in Aarhus sees daily highs of 44°F and lows of 35°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
