Our recommendation for your vacation in Denmark
Since the prospects for a holiday in Denmark are steadily improving, I am confident that I will soon be able to stroll along the sea in Copenhagen again. This works best on the island of Amager. Amager Strandpark is the closest beach to the center – what a lucky coincidence that my hotel was right across the street. The island can be reached via three bridges and there is almost five kilometers of the finest sand. Although I was there at the end of June, there was unfortunately no bathing weather at 18-20 degrees (except for a few die-hard Danes). But that didn’t matter, because walks along the beach were no less beautiful. And the view of the open sea is always great. When I think about it, I get wanderlust! On the horizon you could see the bridge to Malmö and Sweden seemed within reach. This really made me aware of being in Scandinavia. Only the cool wind, which whistled a lot here every day, was a bit annoying, but you also know that from the German coast.
