What to pack for Denmark

A coat

Though it can be warm in summer, Denmark tends to be cool for the majority of the year. Be prepared with a fleece jacket or warm coat, essential for sightseeing and strolling the windy streets or waterfront towns.

Pants or leggings

If you’re tapping into the local culture whilst in Denmark, you’ll more than likely find yourself on a bicycle. Pants or leggings will prove more comfortable and manageable than a long skirt or something short.

Waterproof shoes

Denmark’s climate can be unpredictable. Whether you’re travelling in winter, summer or anytime in between, periodic wind and rain makes a pair of waterproof shoes very handy.

A small digital camera

Blend in with the stylish ways of the Danish locals by leaving your oversized DLSR camera at home. A more compact camera will also save space in your handbag, which you can fill with a few more souvenirs.
