Frequently-asked questions about Denmark. We don't use Euros, you don't need to tip, and nobody in her right mind would want to be a weather forecaster. There, that about covers it...

Denemarken is onderdeel van de Schengen overeenkomst, dit betekent dat er geen paspoort controle meer is tussen de Schengen landen in Europa. Je bent echter wel verplicht om een identiteitsbewijs (bijvoorbeeld paspoort) te alle tijden bij je te dragen in Denemarken.

Of je nou op zoek bent naar het perfecte city break hotel, een gezellige traditionele Deense 'kro', een camping omgeven door natuur of bijvoorbeeld een vakantiehuis aan zee, hier kun je jouw ideale accommodatie in Denemarken vinden. 

The Danish krone is the official currency of Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. The currency sign is “kr.” and the ISO code is “DKK”.  

You can check the current currency rates on this website.

There are no restrictions on the amount of currency you are allowed to import or export, but anything over €10,000 (approximately 75,000kr) must be declared. Read more about the regulations at the Danish Tax Authority’s website.

Service charges are included in hotel, restaurant and taxi bills. If you feel you’ve received great service however, feel free to tip. How much you tip is entirely up to you, and there is no set etiquette for this in Denmark.
