Travel insurance for Denmark: set off in search of a fascinating country
Have you decided to visit Denmark during your stay in Europe? If you have, it’s a good choice. Copenhagen is unmissable, but there are also many other riches waiting to be discovered in the course of your travels. Denmark also has some great attractions to visit, including the original Legoland theme park and the Roskilde music festival.
From Denmark, you can move throughout Europe in complete freedom with a Schengen Visa and set off with complete peace of mind by choosing travel insurance for Denmark that perfectly suits your needs.
Your Schengen Visa allows you to travel to and from Denmark in complete freedom
If you are traveling in Europe, don’t confuse the European Union with the Schengen Area. If you are not from one of the member countries of the Schengen Area, or a country with visa-free travel arrangements with the area, you will need a visa to visit Denmark. Rather than having to request a specific visa upon entering each country, you can take advantage of a Schengen Visa - once you have it, you will be able to move freely between the various countries of the Schengen Area.

Schengen Visa travel insurance and its advantages
Schengen Visa travel insurance is obligatory, but it also has a number of benefits if you want to travel with complete peace of mind. Healthcare costs can quickly add up when you travel abroad and the ability to be well-protected and repatriated if necessary will allow you to fully enjoy a stress-free trip.
Depending on your specific requirements, you can also include additional coverage options allowing you to be compensated in the event that your identity documents are stolen or that your children need to be cared for, among many other situations.
How to get to Denmark
By car: it is possible to reach Denmark from Germany, and there is a bridge connecting Denmark and Sweden.
By plane: when traveling from France and other countries, Denmark is easily accessible by plane thanks to Copenhagen Airport, as well as the one in Billund, 250 km from the capital. There are other smaller airports, mostly for domestic flights.
By train: you can travel by train when coming from various countries, but also during your trip around Denmark itself, with more than 2500 km of railway spread across the entire country. Tip: use a combination of buses and trains.
By bus: there are multiple companies serving Denmark from various European countries. It is useful to note that the domestic bus network is very advanced.
By bike: Denmark is one of the most cycling-friendly countries in Europe, so if you’re visiting Copenhagen, there’s no better way to see the city than on one of its city bikes. It was the first city to introduce such a scheme back in 1995 - an initiative now copied across the world.
Advice on health and vaccinations
There are no compulsory vaccinations for visiting Denmark. It may be advisable to be vaccinated against diphtheria, tetanus, polio and hepatitis B.
Denmark enjoys a temperate climate, with mild, windy winters and cool summers.
Spring is the perfect time for exploring Denmark. It’s rarely very cold in winter, but this season can seem quite long to visitors. The long days of summer are ideal for visiting the country, with temperatures of up to 25°C.
Denmark is a nice place to visit at any time of the year, with the combined appeal of its natural and architectural riches. Notable among the must-see attractions are:
- Copenhagen, with its famous The Little Mermaid statue, but also a wide variety of museums and iconic monuments, such as Rosenborg Castle and the Rundetaarn (Round Tower). Kids will love the city’s Tivoli Gardens amusement park and Copenhagen Zoo.
- Legoland: visitors of all ages will love this theme park - a delight for the whole family. Spend a few hours outside visiting the Lego countries!
- The Danish islands: the island of Møn invites you to enjoy a nature-filled stay on an island popular with many geologists. The island of Ærø is considered to be the prettiest of the islands of Funen; hire bikes and go admire the landscape at your own pace, visiting the traditional little villages along the way. The Faroes consist of 18 different islands. If you can, allow several days to explore them by boat, enjoying the magnificent scenery and traditional villages.
- Odense: Although it is a very touristy destination, the city of Odense has managed to maintain its authenticity. Take a walk through the small streets to discover its superb traditional façades.
- The castles: The castles of Kronborg and Egeskov are two attractions that mustn’t be missed. The two Renaissance buildings still retain their magnificence and magic, centuries after they were built.
- Cycling: With over 11,000 kilometers of marked cycle routes, most of which are on cycle paths away from the traffic or on traffic-free roads or tracks, cycling is the perfect way to tour Denmark and see parts of it regular travelers do not. A relaxing and yet healthy way to travel!
