Denmark is known as the “Kingdom of fairy tales” because of its strong fairy tale atmosphere. This small Nordic kingdom is not only one of the birthplaces of global children’s literature, but also has many cultural symbols and traditions associated with fairy tales. Let’s look at it from a different Angle.

First, literary inheritance
The Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen is one of the most famous fairy tales in the world. His fairy tales have been translated into more than 130 languages and are widely circulated around the world. Through his works, people can feel the strong fairy tale atmosphere of Danish culture. In addition, there are tens of thousands of fairy tale books and manuscripts in Danish libraries and museums.

Second, urban landscape
In Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, there is a very famous tourist attraction – The Hague Castle. The castle is where Andersen lived and wrote, but also an important source of inspiration for his work. The architectural style and palace gardens of the Hague Castle, as well as the “Little Mermaid” sculpture nearby, express the strong fairy tale elements of Denmark. In addition, there are many other fairy-tale related cityscapes and buildings in Denmark, such as Rosenberg Castle, Onke Palace and Ferrelsberg, to provide visitors with a rich and colorful travel experience.

Third,traditional culture
In addition to Andersen’s fairy tales, Denmark has also retained many traditional cultural activities related to fairy tales, such as Christmas markets, “ghost festivals” and so on. With the theme of hot sugar water, tall candy poles, colorful balloons and cheerful music, these festive activities make people feel a fairy tale world full of wonderful experiences and beautiful emotions.
In short, Denmark is known as the “kingdom of fairy tales”, not only because of Andersen’s works, but also because of the strong fairy tale elements in Danish culture. From the perspective of literature, urban landscape and traditional culture, Denmark is a country worth visiting.
