Visitors with disabilities are encouraged to speak to the Assistance Centre at any of the airports in Denmark – they will be happy to provide extra care or information you may need. Please see the links below.

Copenhagen Airport

Billund Airport

Aarhus Airport

Aalborg Airport  

All Danish airports are supporters of the sunflower lanyard for people with hidden disabilities. They allow airport employees to easily identify someone who might need extra care or attention. These can be picked up at the information desk and most check-in counters.

Bus, train and metro

Buses across Denmark should have a wheelchair ramp that can be found by the middle doors of the bus

DSB (Danish State Railways) has a list of stations and their accessibility options. Most train stations have lift access, but it’s always a good idea to double-check, especially if you’re planning trips outside of the big cities. Please read the information on accessibility and tickets here.

The metro in Copenhagen is fully accessible to wheelchair users, with stations having lift access and easy access to the carriage.

Harbour buses in Copenhagen are wheelchair-accessible and a fun way to explore the city.

Extra help and support

Access Denmark has an extensive list of places, buildings, and outdoor areas that have met a set of criteria, meaning it is suitable for persons with extra needs. They cover seven types of users: wheelchair users, hand, arm and walking impaired persons, visually impaired and hearing impaired, those with asthma and allergy, those with cognitive needs and people with reading difficulties. You can access their list here.

If you need to rent a wheelchair or another device to assist you during your holiday in Denmark, contact one of the following services: Senior Shop on +45 39 43 05 50, or Dansk Plejeteknik on +45 58 85 34 40 (these sites are only available in Danish, but call or email and they'll be able to help).

Danish wheelchair users gather and register information on wheelchair accessibility at attractions and restaurants all over Denmark. The result is the biggest accessibility database of its kind in Scandinavia. This excellent resource is in Danish; ask the local tourist office of your destination for help accessing its information. You can also download the app “Lige adgang” which will provide you with information about accessible places in Denmark (in Danish).

Public bathrooms

This handy website will let you know of the nearest accessible toilets around you, or close to whatever address you want to search, all across Denmark.

Further information

Please note that although many Danish cities have cobblestones, many are made wheelchair accessible with larger flat and level stones.

All attractions have thought about accessibility. However, many historic sites have limitations because they are protected sites.
