Spring Temptations in North Zealand

The light is on its way, and soon, the heralds of spring will begin to bud and sprout in the woods and bushes. We have never longed for spring's arrival as much as we do this year. It's time to do something good for ourselves. We want to go out and we crave close experiences that can be felt and provide energy. They are just around the corner.

In North Zealand, the sky is high, and there is room to move in the forest and on the trails. Dive into nature and get inspiration for great walks and bike rides with a view of art, culture, and vital history. Visit the many small farm shops in North Zealand, Denmark, and try the local restaurants and shops. Spend a night under the canvas or come inside and indulge in a hotel stay.

Spring at the Museums: Explore North Zealand's Culture and History

North Zealand boasts a plethora of museums worth visiting during spring. In addition to the already open ones, many also kick off the season in April. Some year-round museums include the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Frederiksborg Castle, and Nivaagaards Painting Collection. These museums house exceptional collections of art and cultural history, providing a deeper understanding of the significance of art and history.

A trip to a museum just north of Copenhagen, can also be an excellent opportunity to spend time outdoors. Many museums in North Zealand have beautiful parks and gardens where you can stroll around and enjoy nature and art in the open air. It's a delightful way to spend a sunny spring day.
