I found that wandering around was eye-opening in so many ways. Yes, it's a small country but Copenhagen and Aarhus are world-class cities. Great food, unbelievable museums (I particularly liked the royal museum) , the shops are unique, and Danish design is justly famous. The royal library (the "Black Diamond") is a great experience though I had no idea what I was doing there aside from just looking around. Restaurants are good but as said upthread, incredibly pricey. Small bars and cafes embody hygge (coziness). Many if not most people speak English which can be helpful as Danish is a very difficult language to learn aside from the pleasantries.

And the Crown Prince is one hot daddy.

Sweden is my favourite as I used to spend holidays there with family but I've spent time in all three.

Norway and Sweden are pretty similar in terms of culture, language and food. Denmark is, unsurprisingly, like Norway and Sweden mixed with Germany. The Danish language isn't as mutually intelligible as standard Swedish and Norwegian though the Malmö and Copenhagen dialects are becoming increasingly similar. Swedish/Norwegian are comparatively easy languages if you're an English speaker with, perhaps, a knowledge of some German. Danish pronunciation is a bit more difficult to master though I've never tried to learn it too much.

Despite their liberal reputations, all three countries are pretty insular and place a lot of societal importance on tradition. That said, food-wise, Swedish pizzas need to be seen (and tasted) to be believed. They'll put anything and everything on them. Everything.

Swede here. Culturally we’re pretty similar. The Finns are the most stereotypically silent and reserved, while the Danes are more outgoing. Swedes and Norwegians fall in between. Ex-pats tend to find Scandinavians a bit hard to get to know, but once you get to know people we’re friendly enough. Swedish, Norwegian and Danish are very similar languages, while Finnish is a completely unrelated language with no intelligibility with the other three. Icelandic is related to the first three, but has diverged more so not as intelligible.

Sweden is a bit more diverse than the other Nordic countries, while Danes consider themselves more “continental”.

Of the capitals, Stockholm and Copenhagen are by far the best travel destinations. Both are beautiful cities with lots of culture, great food and pretty good party scenes. I personally prefer Stockholm, but that’s subjective. Oslo and Helsinki are quite a bit smaller and there’s not as much to do. Reykjavik is basically a small town.

Norway have the most spectacular nature by far, so if you’re outdoorsy, it’s a great travel destination. But Sweden and Finland also have a lot of good hiking and skiing. Denmark is mostly flat farmland. Iceland is a different planet.

All of the Nordic countries are gay friendly, but my experience is that Finland and Norway is a bit more conservative than the rest.

I visited the three countries. Copenagen and Stockholm are beautiful and look rich. Their national food wasn't in general my thing, but I liked the smoked herring marinated in differet kinds of sauce. The Danish pastry is very delicious with the ideal degree of sweetnes, softness and crunchiness. Oslo, on te other hand, seemed less rich athough it is more expensive. Bergen is very beautiful though, only you have to visit in the right time of the year. In the look department, I haven't felt much difference among the three countries, maybe because I'm not really into the nordic look. I found the hottest were the racially mixed. Rest to say I respect a lot these countries and I find them the most humane and respectful cultures in the world. An ex was a Swede and had the kindest and most honest character I had a contact with.

I moved to just outside Stockholm from the US last year. I moved from the Pacific NW so the reservedness of the Swedish culture doesn’t bother me and I have found people far friendlier than anticipated. Also, the metro area is quite diverse. Through my Swedish language courses and rowing club, I’ve met people from all around the world.

Compared to the US the fitness level is insane. I think it is because people love their sweets - Fika has become a ritual and I’m learning to take my bullor seriously.

Swedish pizza can be weird as fuck. I cannot support the bananas. Copenhagen has become one of my favorite food cities. They have a really great food scene I find reminiscent to US west coast cities. Stockholm feels much more entrenched in tradition. While food isn’t necessarily bland, it can be rather simple in preparation which can be good and bad. Beyond the pizza weirdness, there is a lot of great ethnic food in Stockholm if you know where to go.

All of the countries are gay friendly, Sweden and Denmark probably more so.

The Norway coastline is stunning and a must-see trip, but I have found the majority of the Scandinavian peninsula beautiful - there is so much hiking, skiing and sailing to be had.

Swedish pastries/baked goods like semla, sticky chocolate cake, cardamom buns, cinnamon buns, etc. are divine.

Lots of pastries have their own day in the calendar year. Sweden has a big 'fika' culture and social institution of daily coffee and (sometimes) cake. Asking someone to go out for a ’fika’ would be a typical first date in Sweden.

I have lived in Denmark and have visited Norway and Sweden. In many ways, they are similar. But the differences: Danes don't particularly like silly rules. They will wait for a red light to change before crossing the street -- in an abandoned area -- but, if a sign says "no parking," they think that doesn't apply to them (as long as no one is inconvenienced). They really live by the value that "I want to live a good life, but I can only do that if my neighbor has a good life, too." The actually practice democracy -- everything is decided democratically. For example, in a school, the faculty run the classes but everyone -- including the janitor and the matron -- decide if the building needs new paint or repairs. I've had the best sex in my life in Denmark. Period. Many of the men are gorgeous and not in a self-conscious way. The Swedes are too rule-bound and the Norwegians are somewhat annoying. But the Swedish men are gorgeous, too, and my favorite sex partner was Swedish. If you want a little fun, as a Dane or a Swede or a Norwegian to tell you the joke that starts "There was a Dane, a Swede, and a Norwegian on a boat that was sinking..."

Stunning modern architecture and design, as well as lovely historical castles. The Danes walk the walk about the environment, ergonomic design, food. You can't go wrong.

I was in Sweden and Denmark in the summer of 2010 and can't wait to go back Covid has destroyed my travel plans. Copenhagen had my favorite parks and is a great city to walk though. I was amazed at the quality , freshness and taste of produce. Stockholm is a physically beautiful city though a little chilly. Both cities are very clean compared to US cities. After going there it motivated to move to Seattle, the closest big city we have to Scandinavian cities. I'm of Danish descent and it was a sentimental journey as it reminded me of my beloved Danish grandmother. As noted by previous posters the people for the most part are good looking and fit. In Copenhagen if you weren't walking you were commuting by bicycle. Since I was traveling on the cheap in Stockholm I stayed at cheap hotel run by Iraqis in a neighborhood that had a lot of middle easterners.

Spent two weeks in Copenhagen and a couple of days in Stockholm and Helsinki. I liked Stockholm the best, then Copenhagen and Helsinki. Copenhagen is easy to get around, decent food, but insanely expensive. Went to a popular Thai restaurant and pad Thai was $25. Nothing else with it. The locals go to the convenience store and buy booze to get drunk then go to the bars because drinks are so expensive. VAT is added to everything. In Helsinki there are ferries that take the locals to Tallin, Estonia for weekend binge drinking because booze is so much cheaper. Tallin, is a beautiful little city with great food and lovely sites. You can see Helsinki in a day. Small, compact little city. People are friendly, but reserved. Get some booze into Danes and they’re your best friends. I like all the water and islands in Stockholm. Swedes are matter of fact in their approach to strangers but not unfriendly. Didn’t get to Norway. I will say this about the Nordic countries that I visited. I never once felt unsafe anywhere. Can’t say the same thing for here in the US.

Danes are nice to your face. In that way, they remind me of Germans. The Norwegian and Danish languages are not the same, but close enough that they can be understood by a Dane speaking to a Norwegian and vice versa. Sweden has always had the reputation of being the most racism free and egalitarian country in Europe. This hasn't been the case for many, many years. All three countries are fucking cold in winter. If you can read Swedish, Danish, or Norwegian, you can pretty much read the other two and follow what's going on. As a country, I prefer Denmark, but as for people, I love the Norwegians. I can put up with Swedes if I have to.

My Swedish friends complicate everything. If they feel happy they feel guilty, or so aware that pleasure is fleeting they seem to miss it when it's there.

Norwegians I know are less troubled by the world - they have their priorities and focus on being decent, honest, kind and good friends and family members. Very patient and understanding.

And Danes (I know fewer) remind me of Germans without that Deutsch-Obsession. They keep their truths to themselves, seem more detached, and behind their fine manners I wonder what they're really thinking.

R47. I can speak for Gothenburg, where I lived. It is very hard to make friends. Very provincial. They are not interested in talking to strangers. They are superficially pleasant but you will never be invited to their gatherings. It helps if you have a Swedish friend/partner. Even if you have a Swedish partner, it can take 1-2 years to find a job (ie convince a Swedish business to hire a non-Swede).

The only exception is when they are drinking heavily, which is common. The Swedish government has made it harder to buy alcohol from the state stores (fewer hours, not open on weekends).

Finns are not Scandinavians, something the Swedes, Danes and Norwegians like to point out.

Swedes tell Norwegian jokes the way Americans tell Polish jokes or Canadians tell Newfie jokes

But Norwegians have fewer neuroses,

Swedes are more likely to feel their country is the best place on earth.

Danes are more sophisticated/polite, and they have more interactions with other Europeans because geography, so there's that influence.

In all three countries, the interiors of buildings look like Ikea--all blond wood and modern design.

As others have mentioned, Norway and Sweden are cold AF in the winter and it gets dark at 3PM too. Summers, OTOH, are lovely and it stays light till 11.

I'm Norwegian. I feel we are similar to Swedes, but less so Danes. Not only in proximity, but also in language and way of life. In general I think Norwegians and Swedes are colder and more stand offish than Danes. I also think Sweden and Norway are both more conservative than Denmark (though Norway is definitely more conservative tham Sweden). Denmark is very liberal, they like to go out and they have more of a friendlier attitude. Norwegians and Swedes spend more of their lives inside (maybe the cost level has more to do with it idk). That's why owning a house is so important here in Norway. Billions are spent every year renovating homes. Simply because we spend so much time there. Of course there are regional differences. I'm talking more in general. I feel we are more similar to Swedes than Danes in way of life and how we live.

When it comes to language... that's a whole different issue. I don't understand Danish when they talk because they cannot pronounce words properly, the letters just flow into each other which makes it very hard to understand. I have no trouble at all understanding Swedish even though Swedish is supposed to be further from Norwegian than Danish. The Norwegian and Danish written language is almost the same. But how they talk make it impossible to understand when you talk with them. I usually have to ask them to talk slowly or repeat themselves to understand it.

Which has the best gay culture and pro-gay laws? Denmark is more liberal than both Norway and Sweden though they are all equal when it comes to pro-gay laws.

Hottest men? Sweden

R25 Norwegians know we have the ugliest capital in Europe. It is very overrated and expensive, yet lots of people want to live there for some reason. A tiny 30 m2 apartment will cost at least 3, if not 4 million kroner. I get that Oslo has more culture, nightlife, restaurants, concerts etc. Also, really Norway's only gay scene. But again, despite all that I'm not sure it's worth it. I live in a small town a two hour drive southwest of Oslo. I can take daytrips to Oslo whenever I feel like. I have friends living there. But I prefer living here. You can buy a house here as a single person, good luck doing that in Oslo. I'm single and I prefer to be alone. So I don't really crave the culture in Oslo that much. My small town has everything I need anyway, restaurants, nightclubs, bars, movie theater etc. I also live 5 minutes away from the beach, which is nice in summer. I do miss the gay scene in Oslo, but the older I get the less I miss it.
