Denmark in detail


  • Road Rules If you’ll be driving or cycling, brush up on the rules of the road. Cyclists often have the right of way, and for drivers it’s particularly important to check cycle lanes before turning right.
  • Punctuality Trains and tours run on time and aren’t a minute late. Danes operate similarly in social situations.
  • Queuing When you go to a Danish bakery, pharmacy or tourist office – just about any place there can be a queue – there’s invariably a machine dispensing numbered tickets. Grab a ticket as you enter.
  • Toasts As you raise your glass and say ‘skål’ (cheers!), make eye contact with everyone.
