TG Tips – Denmark

It’s about time I added a few entries for the country of my birth. Though I have not lived here for year, I often return and increasingly so for work as tourists begin to discover what a fantastic place for a holiday, either on its own, or part of a fuller Scandinavian experience, Denmark can be. Here then, is the start of the 2nd Cup of Tea guide to things to do in Denmark…

Accommodation

Hotel Koldingfjord, Fjordvej 154, 6000 Kolding. This is one of those few hotels that in themselves make a destination. The setting is fantastic (if just a little remote – you certainly need a car). The fjord is the few just feet away from the terrace (restaurant and bar), the staff amazingly attentive and the breakfasts are incredible.

A Destination in Itself - Hotel Koldingfjord

The hotel comprises several wings – perhaps for the very best experience, try to avoid the modern wing on the hill above – although the views from there are fantastic. For more details see their website here.

Restaurants

Strandparkens Fiskerestaurant – ‘Ved Vandkanten’, Brandsoevej 35, Skaerbaek, 7000 Fredericia. What an incredible place. Not much more than a shed by ‘the waters edge’ (as the name translates) with very few tables. My dinner here was one of THE best seafood experiences I have had anywhere in the world.

Upcoming Lobster Evening - YUM!

Upcoming Lobster Evening – YUM!

A mix of international flavours along with traditional – child hood favourite – Danish ways of cooking fish, the all you can eat fish buffet on offer that night was little short of sensational. As the place is tiny, make sure you book ahead using their website here.
