How to buy licences

All anglers between 18 and 65 years of age must have a fishing licence to fish in Danish waters. It’s easy to buy licences, issued either by day, week or season. Licences can be bought from post offices, tourist offices and fishing shops in Denmark. You can also buy and renew licences online.

Fishing permits

Fishing rights in most natural lakes and streams around Denmark are privately-owned and as well as your fishing licence, you will need a permit to fish in these waters. At many places, a boat can be rented with fishing rights included.
