Destination Information for Denmark

The Scandinavian country of Denmark is made up of the large Jutland Peninsula, to the North of Germany, and several islands. The two main islands are Zealand and Funen, in the Østersøen Sea between Jutland and Sweden. Denmark is a modern, forward thinking country, with a well-preserved and interesting cultural heritage. The people of Denmark are extremely patriotic and proud of their Viking past. The country’s capital, Copenhagen, is on the island of Zealand, and is a large metropolitan city.

With museums, shopping, restaurants and a distinctive Danish style of architecture, this is a popular choice for an European city break and an excellent base from which to explore the Viking heritage of Denmark with several museums and burial grounds on Zealand. For visitors looking for a more relaxed Danish destination, the seaside town of Skagen is popular with locals and tourists alike. If the weather happens to be sunny, the long stretches of white sandy beaches are definitely the place to be!

Additional Health Risks Information for Denmark

Denmark is generally considered to be a safe country to visit, with crime levels remaining low. Petty crime such as theft and pickpocketing is more common in busy areas such as large cities, and as with many European destinations the terrorism threat level is currently elevated. Tourists and visitors to the country should be vigilant about personal safety at all times.

The road quality and driving standards in Denmark are good. Cycling is a very popular way to get around, and there are plenty of places across the country to hire bicycles. Make sure you always wear a helmet and have appropriate safety gear, especially if you are not used to the roads and in busy areas.

If you require medical treatment while in Denmark, hospitals and clinics here are of a high standard. The emergency number to call for an ambulance or other assistance is 112. Visitors from other European countries are entitled to state provided medical care, but you should also take out suitable travel insurance to cover repatriation or other treatment if necessary. Tick-borne encephalitis is endemic in Denmark; consult a travel health specialist to check if a course of the vaccine is needed.
