How is life in Denmark?

Danish citizens have a 'corona passport' system, where they can access cafes, restaurants and cultural offerings if they can show that they have had a negative corona test in the past 72 hours.

There may be different restrictions in place in different parts of Denmark, so check before travel in case they affect your trip. People are expected to keep their distance from each other, and face masks are mandatory in all indoor public spaces, including shops.
