Denmark is one of the unique countries where every city has its interest and peculiarities. This is why some tourists travel to Denmark to see only specific cities.

Despite this, Copenhagen is worth visiting in any case, even if you have been there a dozen times, it will still have something for you.

The majority of smaller Danish cities have their airports, which have the tendency of being located not too far from city centers. These airports offer flights with cheap airfare to many destinations in Europe.

However, the main connections are with Scandinavian cities, Iceland and Great Britain. More connections are available at Copenhagen airport, which is the so-called Danish gate to the rest of the world.

Bornholm is not a very big airport, in fact, it’s rather small with connections only to 2 cities. There are 2 airlines, around 50 domestic and 7 international flights.

The mentioned destinations are non-stop. You can get to Denmark from any part of the world via a transit flight, which will have a stop in some other country before arriving in Denmark.

If you are trying to reach the main Jutland peninsular of Denmark, there are flights available to cities such as Esbjerg, Billund and Aarhus.

All airports in Denmark have car rental companies, some of which usually work 24 hours a day. This means that even if you arrive in Denmark in the middle of the night, you will still have a vehicle to get to your accommodation.

Danish airports also have ATM machines, but you have the responsibility of checking if your card will work in this country. You might have some serious financial problems if you stick the wrong card into a wrong ATM machine.

If this is your first visit to Denmark, you will definitely need some information about the transport, city site, maps and so on. The right place to approach is the information desk, which will provide you with the most important information about getting around in the country.

You get maps and booklets here, that not only enumerate the key destinations for tourists, but also cover their history and description.
