Denmark Travel Requirements

Travellers Essentials

Money Matters
The Danish currency is the krone, or crown (5.80 kroner equal U.S. $1; 1996). The National Bank of Denmark (1818) is the bank of issue and is the center of Danish finance, with head offices in Copenhagen. In addition, several large commercial banks have branches throughout the country. The country also has nearly 460 saving bank branches.

When To Go
Considering its northern latitude, Denmark has a fairly mild climate all year round. Still, the winter months - cold and with short daylight hours - are certainly the least hospitable. Correspondingly, many tourist destinations come alive in late April, when the weather beings to warm up and the daylight hours start to increase and by October they again become sleepers.

May and June can be delightful months to visit: the earth is a rich green accented with fields of flowers, the weather is comfortable and you'll beat the rush of tourists. While autumn can be pleasant, it's not nearly as scenic because the rural landscape has largely turned to brown and the air quality suffers as many farmers burn crop waste in the fields.

High tourist season is July and August. There are open-air concerts, lots of street activity and basking on the beach. Other bonuses for travellers during midsummer are longer hours at museums and other sightseeing attractions. The last half of August can be a particularly attractive time to travel, as it still has summer weather but far fewer crowds.

Getting There
The vast majority of overseas flights to Denmark arrive at the Copenhagen International Airport. A few international flights, mostly coming from other Scandinavian countries or the UK, land at small regional airports in Εrhus, Aalborg, Esbjerg and Billund. There are daily bus and rail services between Germany and Denmark's Jutland peninsula.

It's also possible to arrive from Norway and Sweden by ferry. Other boat options are the daily (high season) and weekly (berg bashing) ferries running from Germany (Kiel and the island of Sylt), Iceland (Seyρisfjφrρur), Norway (Oslo and Larvik), Sweden (Helsingborg, Limhamm and Malmφ), Poland (Swinoujscie) and the UK (Harwich and Newcastle). There are no departure taxes when leaving Denmark.

Getting Around
Denmark has an efficient and well-run transportation system. Domestic air travel is convenient between main cities and it's possible to pick up heavily discounted fares on specified flights. Most places are serviced by regional buses, many of which are timed to connect with trains. There is a good, reliable train system with reasonable fares and frequent service.

Driving is on right-hand side of the road, seat belt use is mandatory and all drivers are required to carry a warning triangle. A huge network of bike paths link the country, so cycling is a practical way to get around, both within towns and also from town to town. Ferry networks link all of Denmark's populated islands, although the more adventurous might like to charter a yacht and mosey around at their leisure.

The international telephone access code is 45. There are no city or area codes. To place an outgoing international call, dial 00 plus the area code and number. For directory assistance, dial 118.
