Welcome to Denmark
Making the most of Braemar’s smaller size to bring you closer to five delightfully diverse destinations in Denmark, where a warm reception is guaranteed wherever you visit, this immersive and uplifting adventure is your opportunity to really get under the skin of one of the world’s most welcoming and most fascinating countries.
You’re in for a wholesome, simply unforgettable experience throughout this 10-night Danish exploration, beginning with a call into Aabenraa after your ship navigates Germany’s picturesque, size-restricted Kiel Canal [ReadMoreMob] You’ll be welcomed with open arms to Aabenraa, where you can enjoy a relaxing day soaking up this charming coastal city’s cosy atmosphere and admiring the fine 13th century architecture, or perhaps take a tour to Denmark’s oldest town, Ribe. [ReadMoreDesk]The following morning you’ll arrive at Hundested to a memorable Viking welcome and traditional battle reenactments on the quayside. A handful of attractions, such as Grønnessedyssen Karlstenen – one of the country’s largest megalithic tombs – and Knud Rasmussen’s House await you here, while Kronborg Castle – the setting of Shakespeare’s Hamlet – is within reach on tour. You can also marvel at Kronborg Castle from the comfort of your ship’s decks, as Braemar sails from Hundested to Rønne, on the beautiful island of Bornholm. Rønne is a joy to explore, with its charming cobbled streets and ochre-coloured half-timbered houses. It’s also your gateway to the friendly fishing town of Gudhjem and the dramatic ruins of Hammershus Slot.
In Copenhagen, your smaller ship will once again take your closer to the heart of it all, docking within easy reach of the city centre and the many delights of the Danish capital. Highlights including the famous Little Mermaid statue and the pretty Nyhavn waterfront district await just a short distance from the ship; while those who take time to dig a little deeper are rewarded with attractions such as the legendary Tivoli Gardens and the gems of ‘Royal Copenhagen’ – Rosenburg Castle and the impressive Christiansborg and Amalienborg palaces. Finally, there’s Fredericia, where your call is specially timed to coincide with the 170th anniversary of the Battle of Fredericia. You’ll be greeted by ceremonial cannon fire and friendly locals in traditional dress, ensuring your arrival into this historic town will be one to remember; and in the evening you’ll be perfectly placed to watch a celebratory fireworks display. During the day, you can head into the town centre – just 400 metres from your ship’s berth – to find old military ramparts and landmarks including the Foot Soldier Statue; or perhaps opt for a tour to nearby Odense, home of Hans Christian Andersen's childhood residence.
