Best Places To Visit In Denmark

If you’re considering visiting Denmark, you’ll be rewarded with a country that is overflowing with a rich history, vibrant surroundings, amazing architecture, etc. Located in Northern Europe, here are the best places to visit in Denmark.

  • Copenhagen
  • Helsingør
  • Aarhus
  • Humlebæk
  • Roskilde

Copenhagen

When talking about the best places to visit in Denmark, it’s easy to start off with the capital city – Copenhagen. The city is a cultural and historical hub that you must explore when visiting Denmark. Castles such as Frederiksborg are full of history and are a tourist’s dream.

If you’re visiting Denmark with family, you can treat them to Scandinavia’s most popular theme park; Tivoli Gardens which is home to a variety of rides, concerts, and theatres. You can even stop for some ice cream (for the kids!).

We will give you a heads up, there are water rides which will wet your clothes but our dry-cleaning services can help you with that!

Helsingør

If you love literature, you’ll love Helsingør. The town of Helsingør is significant historically because of its Shakespearean past and is one of the best places to visit in Denmark. The Kronborg Castle is popular among tourists and will make you feel part of a fairytale! The castle was the setting of William Shakespeare’s play; Hamlet. Wherever you go in Helsingør, it’s full of culture from museums, churches, and elegant palaces like the Fredensborg Palace.

Aarhus

Aarhus is a must when visiting Denmark. Originally starting as a Viking settlement in the eighth century, the city today is a major attraction with a vibrant city atmosphere, and it was named a European Capital of Culture in 2017. You’ll want to make sure your camera is ready because there are plenty of colourful buildings that will be great for your Instagram feed! An iconic spot to visit in Aarhus is the ARoS Aarhus Art Museum. You don’t have to be an art-lover to appreciate the sculpture of this gorgeous museum!

If you want to have a relaxed day, you can always visit the parks in Aargus Botanical Gardens and picnic there with your family! If you make a mess on your picnic mat or drop food on your clothes, Laundryheap has got you covered!

Humlebæk

Humlebæk is a small town that is worth visiting in Denmark. The town’s main attraction is the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art which is celebrated by artists and lovers of art regularly. What makes this museum popular is that it displays the works of famous artists such as Pablo Picasso, Yves Klein etc.

After you’ve visited the museums, the town also offers must-try coffees at the Louisiana Café. If you’re visiting Denmark and humlebæk in the summer, sit back, enjoy your coffee and get your camera ready to take pictures of the views from the café!

Roskilde

We’ve mentioned Denmark’s rich history but one of the best places to visit in Denmark is Roskilde. Formerly Denmark’s capital city, Roskilde would amaze tourists who are keen to learn more about Vikings because you can visit the Viking Ship Museum and step back into time and relive the Vikings Era (don’t worry, it’s all educational fun!).  

Roskilde also prides itself on hosting a music festival, the largest in Northern Europe. If you want to just vibe and sing out loud at the festivals, you are in the right place!

Visiting Denmark should be on your bucket list. Book your flights, experience the vibrant cities, visit the beautiful parks, and explore the city’s history through museums and castles!

Laundryheap services are also available in Denmark. If you ever feel like your laundry is piling up and getting in the way of your adventure, visit our website or download the free Laundryheap app on iOS or Android so we can do your laundry for you!

Guide To Moving To Amsterdam

With a city full of breath-taking architecture, charming culture, captivating history, and delicious food, it’s easy to fall in love with Netherlands’ capital Amsterdam. If moving to Amsterdam is on your laundry list, here is a guide on moving to the City of Canals.

  • Housing
  • Education
  • Climate
  • Transport
  • Healthcare

Housing

Moving to a new country is a big step and certainly not easy. Amsterdam, unfortunately, is an expensive city to live in but we will guide you so you’re aware of your budget when moving to Amsterdam.

Depending on your lifestyle, there are ways to get by. If you’re living alone, a one-bedroom apartment will cost you between €900 – €2,000 monthly but if you’re planning to share accommodation, it will cost you €400 – €1,200 per month.  Unsurprisingly, rent is the biggest expense.

To lower costs, we recommend booking an Airbnb for a few months until you find the right place to live, finding apartments in Amsterdam does take time.

We also suggest looking at Laundryheap, it’s cheap, convenient and will save you cost when it comes to laundry.

Education

With a city full of vibrant nightlife, it is no surprise Amsterdam is popular with university students. If you’re a student wanting to experience the University of Amsterdam, let’s guide you on the essentials!

When compared to the United States, tuition fees are affordable and there are options for living on campus which is perfect for meeting new people! The benefits of scholarship programs significantly reduce the cost of tuition.

For students, we do offer laundry services in Amsterdam. You enjoy your weekend fun; we’ll take care of your laundry!

Climate

Settling into a new environment and climate takes some time, so it’s best to come prepared as Amsterdam isn’t always sunny. You don’t want to get a cold or the flu when arriving, so pack the winter essentials. The canals are gorgeous, but they can be extremely freezing!

If you’re moving in with a big family or kids, the climate in the spring and summer welcomes plenty of outdoor activity and a chance to relax in the park.

Outdoor activities will likely mean your laundry needs doing but no stress, we’ve got that covered!

Transport

Amsterdam is known for its fantastic cycling infrastructure but with an efficient and reliable public transport system, finding your way around the city is easy! To guide you through Amsterdam, the local train network operated by NS is your friend when commuting. In the Netherlands, be sure to apply for an OV-chipkaart which is a national smart card for paying your transport fees.

We’ll give you a heads up; in the winter, train stations tend to be busier so make sure your daily house chores are done in an efficient way as the busier journeys do make you tired later!

Like with other places around the world, there are shops in and around train stations so if you need your coffee fix, you are in luck.

Healthcare

Health is wealth and the Dutch do know how to take care of themselves. Living in the Netherlands would mean you have basic insurance that covers GP visits and hospital stays but it will only cost you €100-€120 and a small percentage is from your employer.

To register with a healthcare provider, be sure to get in contact with the local council to receive a citizen service number and register for health insurance and a local doctor.

Additionally, we recommend getting a borderless multi-currency account to manage your health insurance fees. When it comes to fee organisation, this is just what the doctor ordered!

Whether you’re moving to Amsterdam by yourself, with family or with your spouse, relocating is a difficult yet exciting chapter. Get used to the locals and get to know the city.

Travel hacks for friends 

Photo by Artem Beliaikin from Pexels

Traveling with friends is an experience unlike any other. Not only do you get to experience a completely new part of the world, but you get to do it with your besties. These hacks will make traveling with your friends the ultimate experience. 

  • Plan the logistics together
  • Create a group chat
  • Consider renting a property 
  • Create a kitty 
  • Don’t overpack 
  • Make plans together 
  • Be flexible 
  • Communicate 
  • Stay present
  • Have fun!

Plan the logistics together 

Whether you are traveling with 1 or 100 of your friends it’s important that you plan the logistics of your trip together. This includes, your destination, the length of your holiday, transportation, and accommodation. It’s important that you plan the initial logistics together so that everyone has a say in the holiday plans and is aware of the important details. Once you have sorted the initial logistics, you can divide the arrangement of the tasks between you.

Create a group chat

If you don’t already have a group chat with your friends, make one. A holiday group chat will allow you to discuss arrangements without needing to be physically together. This will ensure that everyone stays up-to-date on the holiday plans, and you can discuss ideas for what to do on the holiday. Try to keep your group chat solely holiday-related so that it doesn’t become congested with general chat.

Consider renting a property 

If you are traveling with a big group of your friends it may be more cost-effective to rent a whole property rather than book individual hotel rooms. Look into the properties available to rent and compare the price, per person, to the price of individual hotel rooms. Renting a whole property comes with the added bonus of having communal areas to yourselves so that you can plan what the days ahead hold. In addition to this, if you are holidaying on a budget, whole properties come equipped with kitchens so you can save money on eating out

Create a kitty  

One of the more awkward parts of traveling with friends is deciding what to do when it comes to money. If one of your friends pays for dinner, and another friend pays for drinks, and a different friend pays for brunch, it can all become incredibly confusing trying to figure out who owes each person what. Instead, create a kitty before you go on your holiday. Everyone puts an agreed amount of money into a pot, either physical or an assigned person’s bank account, and that is the money used whilst on the holiday. It is the fairest way to ensure that everyone is paying equally towards the holiday.

Don’t overpack 

When traveling with friends there is always somebody who overpacks and can’t carry their luggage. You don’t want to be that person, so pack your suitcase smartly. Take clothing that is weather appropriate and can easily be transferred from day to night. When it comes to toiletries and electronics, such as cameras and chargers, divide the items up between yourself and your friends. There is no point everyone taking their own shampoo and charger if you can share.

Make plans together 

A holiday with your friends should be filled with spontaneous fun and laughter, not a rigorous schedule of things to see and do. That being said, make plans with your friends and schedule a handful of activities to fill your days. Do activities that are both fun and unique to where you are going- something that you can’t do at home. Make sure that all plans are discussed and signed off with every member of your group before anything is booked. You don’t want to isolate any of your friends who may not want to do certain activities. 

Photo by Max Ravier from Pexels

Be flexible 

Although you should plan certain activities, remain flexible whilst you are on holiday. Be open to changing plans depending on what others in your group would like to do, and remember that this holiday is supposed to be a fun experience for you all. Spontaneous activities, or even just having a lazy day, can create the ideal situation for life-long memories with your besties.

Communicate 

Holidays are supposed to be relaxing, but when you are with a big group 24/7, even if that group is made up of your best friends, it can become overwhelming. Don’t feel guilty about needing some time on your own to gather your thoughts, simply find a quiet area to relax. Before you go, however, communicate with your friends how you are feeling and what you are going to do. This will both make them aware of where you will be, and also ensure that they know what headspace you are in.

Stay present 

Whilst you are away stay present rather than on your phone. You are supposed to be enjoying time away with your friends, not updating the world on what you are doing. Take your phone with you to take pictures and videos, but limit your screen time and your friends’ screen time. Enjoy spending time and making memories together, and update the world when you get back. 

Photo by KoolShooters from Pexels

Have fun! 

The most important thing to remember when traveling with friends is to have fun. Going away with your friends is supposed to be fun, spontaneous, and exciting, so don’t sweat the small stuff, and open yourself up to new experiences. Most importantly, have the best time with your best friends.

Must-see sights

There are many beautiful sights in Kuwait City but these are our top three picks: 

Kuwait towers 

Kuwait Towers are an integral part of the Kuwait City skyline and one of the most recognisable landmarks in Kuwait. The Kuwait Towers are made up of three slender towers, with the main tower reaching 187 meters high. You can marvel at the towers from below, or travel up and enjoy a meal in the tower’s restaurant, which offers panoramic views of Kuwait City. 

Grand Mosque

Kuwait City’s Grand Mosque is the official Mosque of Kuwait.

Top delicacy 

Machboos is considered the national dish of Kuwait. The dish consists of a bed of rosewater and saffron basmati rice, topped with slow-cooked mutton or chicken. The dish is finished with a drizzle of garlic sauce named Daqqus.

Nightlife

Nightlife in Kuwait City is very different from Western nightlife, as it focuses on friends and food. Rather than drinking alcohol, nightlife in Kuwait City centers around smoking hubble-bubble, a technique where smoke is drawn through a fruity mixture of flavours into a water bowl filled with cold lemon water, which cools the smoke before entering the pipe you draw on.
