Love and tolerance 🏳️‍🌈💕

Back in 1989, our little kingdom made history by being the first country in the world to legally recognise same-sex couples. We've all come a long way since then, but one thing you can guarantee is that you will be experience tolerance, freedom and equality in Denmark. And not least at our many colourful celebrations throughout the year. Let's party! 🎉



Meet the locals

Get a local's eye view of the best things to see and do in Denmark's major cities.

Even more LGBTI+ events 🌈🌈🌈

We Danes like to party. And especially if those parties celebrate equality, diversity and freedom. Come and join us on these special dates.

Where to stay

It's easy - you can stay anywhere! In our cities, all hotels are LGBTI+-friendly and if you are looking for somewhere to stay outside of the big cities, you won't have any problem either! Go super Danish and stay in a summerhouse near the beach, or combine a city trip with a stay in the country - the best of both worlds! 

Where to go

We've got colourful cities with stories to tell - and even a second city with a rainbow that you can walk through right at the top of it. That's commitment, people...

What to do

As you know by now, Denmark is open to the world. But that's not all...we also have a great design and architecture heritage, score points for gastronomy, offer some seriously stylish shopping options and have some glorious nature experiences.
