World Heritage Sites - these are worth a visit

The Great Wall of China, the Taj Mahal and the Pyramids. All three sites have in common that they are on the World Heritage List. The list includes monuments or landscapes designated by UNESCO as sites to be protected, as they are of "unique universal significance."

In total there are a little over 1000 places, and Denmark has seven, eg Roskilde Cathedral. But while most have heard of or seen the Great Wall of China, the world hides several hidden UNESCO World Heritage gems spread across almost every continent.
