10 Best Countryside Hotels In Denmark - Updated 2024

| 4 min read

Denmark is an archipelagic country nestled in the north part of Europe. Smaller in terms of geographical area compared to its neighboring Scandinavian countries, Norway and Sweden, it does not disappoint visitors with attractions waiting in store for them. Breeze through the picture-perfect Nyhavn harbor in Copenhagen and be mesmerized by its 17th and 18th-century architecture. Foodies should not miss a chance to visit the three-Michelin-star Noma that has been awarded the top spot in “The World’s 50 Best Restaurants” several times now. Thinking of a holiday outside the capital city? If you are more into the countryside rather than bustling metropolises, destinations like Sorø, Mols Bjerge National Park, and Ærø Island are the perfect base for you. For a more in-depth guide, browse through this list of the best countryside hotels in Denmark.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) recent guest reviews, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and countryside location. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on April 12, 2024.
