When you visit Copenhagen, see the statue of the Little Mermaid and "spend" Hans Christian Andersen's tour, you must know that in Denmark you can get lost in the crowd of Santa Clauses, that you can dive with sharks and descend through the highest sand dune in Europe. Copenhagen is also the capital of Denmark, and a combination of contemporary architecture and historical artifacts.

Wattenmeer is a natural whole that covers 900km2, from southern Denmark to Germany and the Netherlands, and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
