    At Legoland just about everything is constructed from Lego bricks—more than 50 million of them. Among its incredible structures are scaled-down versions of cities and villages from around the world (Miniland), with working harbors and airports; the Statue of Liberty; a statue of Sitting Bull; Mt. Rushmore; a safari park; and Pirate Land.Some of the park's other attractions are more interactive than the impressive constructions. The Falck Fire Brigade, for example, allows a family or group to race eight mini fire engines. The Power Builder Robots allow children and adults to sit inside robots as they program their own ride.

    The Aalborg Historical Museum contains the well-preserved underground ruins of a medieval Franciscan friary, including a walled cellar and the foundations of the chapel.

    Rising gracefully over the center of town, the Århus Domkirke was originally built in 1201 in a Romanesque style but was expanded and redesigned into a Gothic cathedral in the 15th century. Its soaring, whitewashed nave is one of the country's longest. The cathedral's highlights include its chalk frescoes, in shades of lavender, yellow, red, and black, that grace the high arches and towering walls. Dating from the Middle Ages, they depict biblical scenes and the valiant St. George slaying a dragon and saving a maiden princess in distress. Also illustrated is the martyrdom of St. Clement, who was drowned with an anchor tied around his neck. He became a patron saint of sailors. Climb the tower for bird's-eye views of the rooftops and streets of Århus.

    The baroque Cathedral Church of St. Botolph is dedicated to the Anglo-Saxon patron saint for seafarers. The stone church, which stands on the site of an older wooden church built in the year 1000, has been rebuilt several times in its 800-year history. The church is a fascinating juxtaposition of austerity and splendidly ornate woodwork, paintings, and gilded statuary, including a quadruple clock face installed in the church tower from which eight gilded cocks crow the hour. By turns Protestant and Catholic, this Reformation- era church bears the marks of the religious turmoil that plagued the region.

    In the 19th century the tiny island of Fanø (30 km [19 m]) northwest of Ribe—plus a 12-minute ferry from Esbjerg—had an enormous shipbuilding industry and a fleet second only to Copenhagen's. The shipping industry deteriorated, but the maritime heritage remains. Today Fanø is a summer oasis for legions of Danes and other northern Europeans. Silky sand beaches unfold along the west coast, buffered by windswept dunes and green reeds. Cars are allowed on the beach, and it's well worth taking a ride along the flat sandy coast between the ferry port in Nordby, Fanø's capital, and the traditional town of Sønderho, 13 km (8 mi) to the south. Spinning along the white sandy expanse is like crossing a desert; only the dark blue sea off in the distance reminds you of your island whereabouts. The beach is so level and wide that the military used to train here. In the off-season, when summer visitors have returned home, the Fanø shore becomes a tranquil retreat, hauntingly silent save for the rustle of reeds and the far-off squawk of a bird.

    At Denmark's nothern tip, you can literally stand with each foot in a different sea. The North Sea meets the Baltic Sea here—the water can be calm on one side and quite choppy on the other. Many a ship found its end here where the two seas clash, so don't go swimming in these dangerous waters. To get to the tip, take a tractor trailer called "the Sandworm" from the nearby parking lot, or walk for about a mile along the beach.

    Next to Budolfi Kirke, the 15th-century Monastery of the Holy Ghost is one of Denmark's best-preserved monasteries and the only one that admitted both nuns and monks. The building was erected in several stages in the 15th and 16th centuries, and the duty of the first nuns and monks to live there was to look after the sick and aged. Coincidentally, the building is now a home for the elderly. During World War II, the monastery was the meeting place of the Churchill Club, a group of Aalborg schoolboys who earned world fame for their clever sabotage of the Nazis—their schemes were implemented even after the enemy locked them up.

    The favorite local landmark is the magnificent 17th-century Jens Bang's Stone House, built in 1624 by the wealthiest merchant in town. It was rumored that because he was never made a town council member, the cantankerous Bang avenged himself by caricaturing his political enemies in gargoyles all over the building and adding his own face with its tongue sticking out in the direction of town hall. The five-story Renaissance building has been the home of Aalborg's oldest pharmacy for 350 years. Note that the Aalborg tourist office is directly across the street.

    In the center of the old town is a narrow cobbled street named, as the story goes, for an aristocratic maiden accused of being a witch, then beheaded. Now its fame as nightlife central is second only to that of Copenhagen's Strøget. Despite the flashing neon and booming music of about 30 bars, nightclubs, and restaurants, the street attracts a steady stream of visitors and appeals to all ages.

    The imposing marble-and-glass structure of the North Jutland Museum of Modern Art was designed by architects Alvar and Elissa Aalto with Jacques Baruël. The architects skillfully laid out the interior to allow the natural Nordic light to flood the spaces, and a series of interior grids and partitions permit curators to tailor the space according to each exhibition, many of which are drawn from the museum's acclaimed permanent collection of 20th-century Danish and international art. The extensive grounds contain a manicured sculpture park and an amphitheater that hosts concerts and other performances. The structure, which dates to 1972, underwent a total renovation in 2014-15.

    Just north of Aalborg at Nørresundby (still considered a part of greater Aalborg) is Lindholm Høje, a Viking and Iron Age burial ground where stones placed either in the shape of a ship or in triangles denote where men were buried and oval or circular groups of stones show where women were buried. In total, there are about 682 graves dating from AD 400 to shortly before AD 1000, when the site was completely covered by sand drift, which preserved both the graves and a freshly ploughed field. At the bottom of the hill there is a museum that chronicles Viking civilization.

    The Ribe Domkirke stands on the site of one of Denmark's earliest churches, built around AD 860. The present structure, which dates from the 12th century, is built of a volcanic tufa stone, transported by boats from quarries in Cologne, France. Note the Cat Head Door, said to be for the exclusive use of the devil. The 14th-century brick bell tower once clanged out flood and fire warnings to Ribe's citizens and today affords sweeping views of the town's red-slate rooftops and surrounding marshes.
