Officially the Kingdom of Denmark, this country is home to the oldest still-existing kingdom in the world and spans across numerous islands in addition to its major landmass of the Jutland. To truly experience this country at its best, explore each of the islands and the Jutland thoroughly via rental car; you’ll love the seamless meeting of old world castles with new world design sensibilities.
Denmark witnesses four distinct seasons without many extreme weather conditions; summer spans from about June to September. A rain jacket is recommended regardless of your travel dates.
Danish is the official language of Denmark, though a vast majority of the population also speaks good English, and you’re also likely to come across speakers of German and French as well.
Denmark is located in the Central European Time Zone, UTC+1.
The currency is the Danish krone, which is more or less pegged to the Euro at 1 Euro to around 7.5 kroner. ATMs are widely available in most towns and all large cities, though you may find that they are closed at night.
As a member of the Schengen Agreement, Denmark accepts visitors from many countries visa-free for up to 90 days - regardless of time spent in a previous Schengen country. If you do need to apply for a visa, you can do so at a Danish consulate; if there isn’t one in your area, you can often also apply at a Swedish or Norwegian consulate instead.
With well-maintained roads and a surprising amount of landscape variety in this quite flat country, driving is a real joy in Denmark. Just keep your eyes open for ample bicycle traffic along your travels, and expect to have to park your car outside of the city centers, which are peacefully maintained for pedestrians. Book your rental today to experience Denmark beyond its city centers. You won’t be disappointed!
