This beautiful route showcases the very best of Denmark, with nice views over to Sweden. There’s always a lot of vintage cars on the road in good weather. Starting just north of Copenhagen, this is a short trip of only 50 kilometers but it can take up to 90 minutes to complete. Coastal road 152 boasts beautiful scenery with up-market housing, plus forests and beaches. Famous museums like Karen Blixen museum, Louisiana museum for modern art, are also on the route. There is also ample good food in restaurants, pubs, and small food stands nearby. The road is easy to follow – just keep going straight ahead! Take your time and take a few stops, it is not a race track. End the trip with a visit of Kronborg Castle, scene of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Visit the beautuful centre of Helsingor. See also Teknisk Museum in Helsingor of you are interested in historical transport, with a lot of classic cars, though a 911 is missing! You can easily continue your Scandinavian trip further north to Sweden by ferry. Or take the way back by highway to Copenhagen, it only takes only half an hour. Watch the speed limit though, of course!
