The Danes love their country. Don’t ever criticize it or the people while you are in Denmark. They are fairly welcoming to visitors as long as you love their country as much as they do. The Danes are also all about being modest and not being flashy. When in the country it’s best to try not to draw attention to yourself with over the top apparel. Denmark is one of the greenest countries in the world. When shopping for souvenirs, bring your own bag or be prepared to pay DKK1-5 for one. When throwing away trash, make sure you are clear on which receptacle to put it in as there are usually two separate containers- one for biological materials and one for burnable materials. If you aren’t sure where to put it, ask a local to help you.

Billund Airport is located in South Central Jutland and is connected by buses. Visitors can also utilize trains and cars to get to Denmark. There are 6 trains that go directly from Hamburg to Copenhagen each day. Denmark can be easily accessed by the German Autobahn on route E45.
