From Fredericia, guests can also pay a visit to other historical sites within Denmark.

The Jelling monuments are a set of standing stones and burial mounds that mark the site of where Viking King Harald Bluetooth christened Denmark over 1,000 years ago. A museum nearby shares the legacy of the Vikings.

Odense is the birthplace of Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, whose stories inspired The Little Mermaid and Frozen. The city is on the island of Funen, and features museums and activity centers that tell the history behind the fairy tales.
