Denmark is a beautiful country in Northern Europe, which despite having visited three times, I still don’t feel like I know enough.

I have a Danish aunt, so have visited Copenhagen and Aarhus on multiple occasions. I loved both cities, as they are both very liveable and have a friendly vibe.

One day I would love to go on a proper Danish road trip, and explore more of the beautiful Danish countryside. That said, if you don’t have long in Denmark, Copenhagen is a great weekend destination.

You can spend three days in Copenhagen, discover the city by bike, and enjoy the beautiful architecture and unique vibe of the city.

Quick travel facts about Denmark

Where is Denmark? Denmark is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe.

How to get there: You can find the cheapest flights to Denmark via SkyScanner. You can also travel to Denmark overland from neighbouring countries, or via ferry and cruise from other European countries.

Currency: Danish Krone (DKK) – see the latest exchange rate here.

Electrical plugs in Denmark: Types C&F (the ones you find throughout most of Europe) – I recommend an international adapter so you can use it on multiple trips.

Capital city: Copenhagen

Best time to visit: The best time to visit Denmark ultimately depends on what you’re looking for. In my opinion, the best time to visit Denmark is during the summer months, when the days are long, the temperatures are warm and the landscape is gorgeous and green.

However, if you’re only planning on visiting Copenhagen, you could also visit in winter, since being a city, you can do pretty much everything you would do in summer also in winter. It’s just going to be very cold and grey while you do so!

How to travel around Denmark: Denmark is a fairly small country. You can easily rent a car and road trip around it, or travel via trains and public transport.

Visa requirements: Denmark is part of Schengen. Depending on your passport you can either travel to Denmark without limitations or for up to 90 days without a visa.
