Time in Denmark is one hour ahead of GMT/UTC, the same as in neighbouring European countries.
During the northern hemisphere summer, Denmark is one hour ahead of London, six hours ahead of New York, and eight hours behind Sydney.
Clocks are moved forward one hour for daylight saving time from the last Sunday in March to the last Sunday in October.
Denmark uses the 24-hour clock system and all timetables and business hours are posted accordingly.
Klokken, which means o’clock, is abbreviated as kl (kl 19.30 is 7.30pm).
The Danes number their weeks and refer to them as such – eg schools break for winter holidays in week 7 or 8; many businesses are closed for summer holidays in weeks 29 and 30. It might be hard to wrap your head around – www.ugenr.dk can help.
