A Travel Comparison for Vacations, Honeymoons, and Tours Denmark vs. Sweden

Should you visit Denmark or Sweden?

Denmark and Sweden are both expensive countries in Europe, but they are comparable in price to each other.

Denmark is a small country, and most visitors spend the majority of their time in Copenhagen. The city is very cosmopolitan and international, and there's a lot for visitors to see and do. Whether you're interested in history, nightlife, or just soaking up the atmosphere, Copenhagen is a fun place to spend some time. It's often possible to include a trip to Denmark into a longer trip to Scandinavia or Europe. Many visitors pass through the country when exploring other areas.

Sweden is a much larger country. Many visitors spend time in the capital city of Stockholm, which is a fun city with a lot to see and explore. But if you really want to experience Sweden then you need to get outside of the capital city. Sweden's large size makes it a bit difficult and expensive to explore. There are trains, buses, and ferries, but the prices can be high. In some cases it's actually more affordable to find a domestic flight. Outdoor sports are very popular in Sweden, so if you enjoy being active, particularly with winter activities, then this is a fun country to visit.
