Must see wrecks in Denmark
It is always best to ask local divers for recommendations on which wrecks are the most interesting to see near where you are staying, but here are some of our favorites:
- Vapper, an Estonian cargo ship that was sunk by torpedo in 1940.
- SMS Undine, a German defense ship that was launched in 1902 and sank during World War I, under the attack of a British submarine.
There are also many great places for beginner divers to gain experience, like at the Amager Strandpark dive park, or at near-surface wrecks like that of the HMS Defence.
Other things to see and do in Denmark
Looking for a place to take the whole family? Look no further than the historic Legoland Billund Resort — the first ever Legoland amusement park. Fun fact: Denmark is the birthplace and current headquarters of The Lego Group (lego.com)!
If you’ve Googled Denmark, you’ve probably seen a picture of the iconic, colorful, waterfront buildings of Copenhagen’s Nyhavn (“New Harbor”). It’s a great place to go for a walk, enjoy coffee at a local cafe, and take in the history of Copenhagen.
The Moesgaard Museum focuses on archaeology and ethnography. It comes highly recommended by both us and the nearly 2,000 people that reviewed it positively on TripAdvisor! It really is a very well put together museum and often hosts special exhibits, like the “On The Steppes Of Genghis Khan – Mongolia’s Nomads” exhibit in 2018.
Should you go diving in Denmark
If it’s wrecks you seek, then you should already be packing your bags. If you ask us, Denmark is definitely one of the most underrated diving places in the world. Plus, it’s just a great country to visit in general. It may not be the warmest place to visit, but the sights it has to offer (both under and above water) more than make up for the lack of consistent beach-side weather.
