Tourist Information




Copenhagen Traditions:


Each year - particularly in the summer, Copenhagen is home to many festivals, ranging from Visual Arts, Film, Design, Historical, Football, Food & Drink, Rock and Jazz. Which ever your preference, the importance of any festival is of course to enjoy, relax, mingle, eat, and drink!


Electrical Power:


Denmark, like most other European countries, has 220-volt AC, 50Hz current and uses two-pin continental plugs.
Visitors from the UK will need an adaptor for electric appliances, whereas North Americans need a transformer in order to use their 110/125V appliances


Communications:


Public pay phones accept coins or pre-paid 'telecards'. If making international calls, you should use 5-20 DKK coins. Alternatively, the 'telecards' are available in the amounts of 30, 50 and 100 DKK and you can purchase these in convenience stores and post offices.

International Calls
First you need to get an international dial tone by dialling "00" and waiting for a higher pitched continuous tone. Then you can dial the international number, starting with country code, area code and local number.

Tips and Taxes:


Tipping is not required, as service charges are automatically added to bills in restaurants, taxis or hotels. If service has been exceptionally good, however, it is common to tip.
If you are a citizen from a country outside the EU and Scandinavia, you can claim a VAT refund. In order to achieve the VAT refund the minimum purchase per shop is DKK 300/EUR 40. VAT can be refunded at the Airport upon presenting a completed VAT refund form.


Medical Emergencies:


You should seek medical advice before traveling and ensure that all appropriate vaccinations are up to date. The standard of healthcare is high. A reciprocal healthcare agreement exists between UK and Denmark by which British nationals are covered for emergency treatment whilst visiting Denmark.
