29 May, the Danish Prime Minister announced that the Danish borders will reopen for tourists from Norway, Germany and Iceland from 15 June.

Upon entry, tourists must document their booking of a stay in Denmark of minimum six nights. It was previously announced that tourists were not allowed to stay in Copenhagen and Frederiksberg municipalities, but this was changed 12 Friday allowing for stays across Denmark. 

The Danish authorities will do spot checks with corona tests at the Danish borders as well as in popular holiday areas. Informative materials on safe behaviour while visiting Denmark will also be made available by the authorities.  

The borders remain closed until further notice for tourists from the rest out Europe and the world.

The authorities’ recommendations for how to protect yourself and others:

  1. Wash your hands frequently or use an alcohol-based hand rub
  2. Cough or sneeze into your sleeve
  3. Limit physical contact
  4. Be diligent with cleaning
  5. If you are older or have a chronic illness, avoid crowds of people and advise others to be aware of your condition
