Denmark

Denmark is another place that must be seen.

There are a number of must sees in Denmark:
• Copenhagen (Little mermaid on River in Copenhagen; Amalienborg palace)
• Frederiksborg Palace (Located in Hillerod; 36 minutes (39 km) from Copenhagen)
• Kronborg kastle (Located in Helsingor; 40 minutes (47 km) from Copenhagen; Less impressive than the Frederiksborg Palace)
• Legoland Billund (3 hours from Copenhagen)

One can easily spend 2 days in Copenhagen. One of the two days should be spent visiting Frederiksborg Palace and Kronborg Kastle.
Other locations:

The second oldest amusement park is Tivoli Gardens. There is a short distance from Copenhagen and a place to stop if you have a family or simply a fan of amusement parks.

Skagen is in the north tip of Denmark and is popular place to see.

How to reach there from Sweden?

You can travel to Denmark from Sweden on the Oresund Bridge. It can be reached via all modes of transportation.

The Netherlands

When you think of Netherlands, you think of two things: Amsterdam and Windmills.

Amsterdam

Amsterdam is an amazing city.

Some of the must-sees in Amsterdam:
• Old City Centre (Most popular tourist area and includes Red Light District)
• Canal Ring
• Van Gogh Museum
• Rijksmuseum (top class museum)

Windmills in Netherlands

Just outside of Rotterdam is a town called Kinderdijk, which has a host of old fashion windmills. Kinderdijk is 1 hour and 15 minutes located from the Netherlands.

If you want to stay closer to Amsterdam, the best location would be Zaanse Schans, which is only 20 minutes from Amsterdam.

Itinerary

I would spend 3 days (2 if in a rush) in Amsterdam with a side trip out to Kinderdijk.

Belgium

While Belgium is a small country, there are a number of places to visit.

  • Brussels
  • Bruges (Beautiful city with waterways like Venice – “Venice of the North”)
  • Gent
  • Giethorn
  • Antwerp

Note: Picture is of Bruges

Of the locations, I would put a focus on Bruges and Brussels. I would try and spend a day or two at these locations. If I planned to spend more time in Belgium, I would then visit the other locations.

Bruges is a little over an hour over Brussels.
