Yosemite National Park - California
California is a favorite destination for many Danes, and there are also many exciting experiences to get. Once you have visited the big cities, shopped through and taken selfies by The Hollywood sign, do not deceive yourself for a ride in Yosemite National Park.
USA has countless national parks, but Yosemite is one of the most famous. The park is large and insanely beautiful with waterfalls, large forests and high mountains. An obvious place to go hiking and enjoy the magnificent landscape, which is very different from the Danish.
Taj Mahal - India
The Taj Mahal is Indians answer to a fairytale palace. Outside the Taj Mahal, there is noise, chaos and large crowds, but when you enter the palace complex, there is a completely different atmosphere. There are still many people, but it is calm and people are affected by the beautiful palace and the atmosphere it exudes.
Here you can dream away to another time with beautiful clothes, servants and secret adventures. Although there is a lot of talk that the Taj Mahal is threatened by the pollution of the area and large amounts of rubbish, it is definitely a place worth visiting.
Pamukkale - Turkey
We understand well why the unique hot springs at Pamukkale in Turkey has been added to the UNESCO list. The 17 lakes are spread over several floors, and the deposits from the limestones look like large icicles.
But just because the area looks like something from the movie 'Frozen', make no mistake; the springs are almost 100 degrees hot and not easy to dip your toes in. The whole area is protected so you can not get very close to the lakes, but of course there is a path around the whole area where you can enjoy the unique view.
Giant's Causeway and Causeway Coast - Northern Ireland
It knotted rocky landscape by Northern Ireland Giant's Causeway looks almost like building blocks stacked by giants. There are about 40.000 columns, and most are hexagonal, giving them a man-made look.
However, they have been lying there since the ice age, and it is believed that it is lava that has been cooled by the sea water. As the pillars are available in many heights, both children and adults feel like climbing them - and fortunately you can do the same.
Although Giant's Causeway is technically located in Northern Ireland in Great Britain it is clearly the easiest to fly to Dublin in Ireland and then continue north from there. Dublin is also an exciting city, so that's just a plus.
Bryggen, Bergen - Norway
Last but not least on the list of world heritage is Bryggen. Bryggen is a bit reminiscent of Nyhavn in Copenhagen, is an area in Bergen, Norway second largest city. The old brightly colored houses light up all year round and are reflected in it havet.
The old houses are still home to shops and cafes, and you get a sense of how busy an area it must have been when it was built.
As in Nyhavn, it is full of happy people in the summer, and it is a good place to settle down on a warm summer day.
