Baltic Sea culinary - Denmark

Denmark is a fairly small country in terms of both population and geographical area. Don't let this fool you.

Ask the locals:

There are plenty of variety to experience in both cuisine, nature, and cities. Most Danes are able to understand and speak English, and will happily help tourists in need of directions or suggestions if asked politely. Many also understand German - and otherwise gesturing is always entertaining.

Asking the locals about great places to visit, is a good way to find hidden gems and explore the variety of Denmark. Many people will point you to their favourite restaurant, cafe, or speciality shop where you can discover a wealth of both Danish heritage and of the many cultural influences that have left a mark on Danish society and culture.

What to expect:

As stated above Danish cuisine is a mix of traditional Danish heritage and foreign influences. You can easily find the robust traditional Danish cooking, you can find imported dishes, a mix of the two, or some of the very creative reinventions of traditional Danish dishes.
