Buildings, Denmark

In Denmark you can experience fabled castles with interesting architecture and beautiful towers, surrounded by moats with drawbridges. Some castles are open to the public and can be seen on a guided tour or on your own. Often you will find that museums and restaurants have been established on the castles. Furthermore, you can experience noble manor houses, large estates, historic convents, mediaeval castles, castle ruins and old redoubts. The many cathedrals, chapels and other special churches, like f.x. the characteristic round churches in Bornholm, are worth a visit. Many of the idyllic water and windmills have been restored, and when the wind is right, flour is being milled here. Equally, many of the old farms have been brought back to their original state. A part of the lighthouses, water towers and belvederes today house interesting exhibitions. Furthermore, you can experience sculptures, which are many metres high and are visible from a distance of many kilometres.
