Denmark – Gay Guide

Denmark: Worldpride & EuroGames 2021 in Copenhagen

As a Scandinavian country on the North and Baltic Seas, Denmark, and particularly its capital Copenhagen, is a regular favourite of the LGBTQ+ community. Composed of a large peninsula and an archipelago of islands, the Kingdom of Denmark is an ideal destination if you want to enjoy nature. Are you a big fan of bike riding? Danish cities are ideal for this, and the colourful city of Copenhagen is a haven of peace and quiet. As for the Danes, in addition to being fervent defenders of the environment, they are also known for their hospitality and open-mindedness. What a great way to plan your trip to Denmark.

General information about Denmark

The Kingdom of Denmark is a Scandinavian country with a population of approximately 5.8 million. Its territory consists of a peninsula and its surrounding islands, but also the Faroe Islands and Greenland. The largest city is the capital Copenhagen, followed by Aarhus. Denmark has a land border with Germany, but is connected to Sweden by the Øresund bridge, which you can reach by train or car. The Danes have one of the most advanced welfare systems in the world and are regularly in the top three countries with the happiest people.

Like all of Scandinavia, Denmark is a forerunner in the protection of LGBTQ+ persons. In 1989, it was the first country in the world to allow same-sex couples to sign a registered partnership together. In 1999, adoption of a spouse’s child for gay couples also became possible and since 2009, adoption by a same-sex couple is legal. Gay civil marriage became legal in 2012 and the ability to change gender was adopted in 2014.

Denmark is an integral part of the European Union, but its currency has remained the Danish krone. 10 Euros will give you about 74 DKK.

For citizens of the European Union, Switzerland or a member country of the European Economic Area, a national identity card or passport is sufficient, as Denmark is a member of the Schengen Area.

For travellers coming from Canada, the USA or Australia, there is an agreement with the EU which allows you to be exempted from visa requirements for stays of less than 90 days. However, please note that during 2022, you will have to get your ETIAS before any departure. This is an electronic travel authorisation that must be done online before the trip, which will cost €7 and will give access to the Schengen area. Here is the link for more information: ETIAS.
