Denmark (Eyewitness Travel Guides) (Paperback)

Denmark, a small-sized yet complex nation, has relatively few guidebooks compared to some of the more popular and well-travelled countries to its south.

The guide is quite well-organised, the publishers have divided Denmark into a number of regions and these are colour coded. Not exhaustive on Copenhagen, but then you can get the Eyewitness Top Ten to get more info. Also has calendar of events that's useful.

 

Top 10 Copenhagen (Eyewitness Travel Guides) (Paperback)

The Top Ten for Copenhagen, as mentioned above. 128 pages, published Sept 2007, so it's right up to date at the time of writing.

Copenhagen's a fun city, and if you're going, this is a really useful companion!

Lonely Planet Scandinavian Europe (Scandinavian Europe,8th Ed)

No Baltic States, but more up-to-date (Feb 2007) than the one below. If you're basically doing a swing through Scandinavia, this will give you the basic material, but without the extra visual glitz I like in the Eyewitness series.

"Written by an opinionated team of eight savvy writers. The only guide with in-depth coverage of Iceland and the Faroes, plus information on Tallinn and St Petersburg. Filled with feedback from travellers and tips from locals."

As it's basically designed for budget travellers (still expensive in Scandinavia!), there's a bit of wastage for those on tours or travelling a step up, but I still think it's worth taking, especially for the handy maps.

Lonely Planet Scandinavian & Baltic Europe (Scandinavian and Baltic Europe, 5th Ed (Feb 2001)

A bit old now, I used this when I did the original Northern Capitals tour, which in my case included the Baltic States, as it was the only one at the time that covered the area. It does cover a huge area and was useful during the short time spent in the individual capitals, but I admit to missing the Eyewitness illustrations and 3D maps. More budget orientated.

NB, Latvia and Lithuania are included in this book (but I did take separate guides for Moscow and St Petersburg).

Not enough for you?
