DENMARK – THE HAPPIEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD LIVE HERE
It’s no secret that the people of Denmark are among the happiest people in the world. This is confirmed once again by the so-called “World Happiness Report”. In 2016, Denmark was in first place and in 2019 in second place in the ranking. This is led exclusively by Nordic countries – despite mostly dark and long winters. The decisive factor for the perceived happiness of the residents is the self-perception – that is, their own feelings regarding personal happiness, freedom and factors such as life expectancy, income, social network, etc. No wonder then that Denmark is such a popular travel destination, especially for families – after all the country especially for its family friendliness known. No matter how happiness is measured in countless studies – you can be sure that Denmark is always at the forefront.
Perhaps it is because students and families in Denmark receive a lot of support from the state, perhaps because no place in Denmark is further than 52 km from the sea or because the Danish lifestyle is just so “hygge”. The word is unique in the Danish language and describes a convivial feeling of warmth, joy and coziness that one feels when one enjoys “the good life” with his family and friends to the fullest. Hygge!
In any case, Denmark is worth a visit, regardless of whether you are planning a city trip to Copenhagen or Aarhus or prefer a holiday home on the beach with the family. Denmark offers many opportunities to relax, experience cultural events or be active. Experience it for yourself!
CLIMATE – TEMPERATURE – TRAVEL TIME
Denmark is characterized by a moderate maritime climate. The summers are mostly warm and the winters are mild. Of course, climate change is also noticeable here – in 2018 Denmark also had to suffer from the drought summer, accept crop losses and due to the acute risk of fire, a barbecue ban on charcoal grills and open fires was issued even in the high season. Between June and August, the average maximum daytime temperature was around 21 degrees, in winter around 2 degrees Celsius. The winter is generally relatively mild, with little snow.
The best travel time is between May and August. In May and June the water is of course even colder than in late summer, but the weather is relatively stable in these months and not too much rain is to be expected. On the island of Bornholm, incidentally, are most sunshine hours in Denmark counted, so it is very attractive for bathing. Most rain usually falls between October and January.
