The first days in Denmark

Posted by on February 23, 2014

On an early Sunday morning we started our North Cape tour. Driving 7400km in less than four weeks. We knew that we daily had to drive about 350km. But it should be worthwhile, because we would see Scandinavia from south to north. Besides that do sightseeing and go to a campsite around 4pm daily, where we had time for leisure.

Our first day ended after a long trip through the Netherlands, Germany and Denmark in Arøsund. A small town along the coast of Denmark where we were able to swim in the see. Mid July and the weather was very nice.

The second day we had our first stop near Holckenhavn. There we had lunch while enjoying the great view to the Storebaelt Bridge.

After crossing the Storebaelt Bridge over The Great Belt we took the road to Trelleborg where we visited Vikingeborgen Trelleborg. This museum has a Viking Fortress, ring-fortress and exhibitions about the Vikings. The Viking Fortress was built in 980 and is the oldest fortress of Denmark. Next to that also on the UNESCO’s World Heritage Tentative List. It was interesting to see this museum and get information about the early settlers of Denmark.

Finally we went to a campsite in Ishoj, near Copenhagen. The next day we would go to Copenhagen for sightseeing and after that stay another night in Ishoj before going to Sweden.
