Travel with Respect

When it comes to conversing with Danes, most do not expect foreigners to speak Danish and if the Dane can not figure out where you come from in Denmark by your accent, they will automatically speak English. 'Taler De engelsk?' is the polite way to ask if they speak English, when speaking to older Danes. However, this is a somewhat dated way of asking and most may just ask "Taler du engelsk?" No respectful titles are necessary when addressing someone. The titles 'Hr' and 'Fru' have mostly disappeared from use in Denmark, and people are generally addressed by their first name regardless of the situation. Despite their disregard for formality, Danes are very polite and well mannered while in public. Be sure to practice good table manners while at restaurants, and make sure to learn the dozens of ways to say 'thank you' in Danish. Drinking alcoholic beverages in public is considered socially acceptable in Denmark, and having a beer out in a public square is a common warm weather activity there. But be sure to do so in moderation, especially during the daytime.

Travel Safe

Generally: Denmark is very safe. No risk of natural disaster or animal attack. Crime and traffic are only minor risks. In the traffic: Danes generally drive by the rules (except for the bicycles) but may not be very helpful to other drivers in ceding right of way, etc. Watch out for the bicycles in the cities, especially when turning across bicycle lanes; they have right of way. On highways, make sure that you only pass on the left, and be aware that Danes like to drive fast. Also, as a special note to North American drivers, it is illegal in Denmark (as in rest of Europe) to turn right on a red light. On foot in cities: As mentioned above, Danes drive by the rules, and they have every expectation that pedestrians do the same. Therefore, it is important to obey Walk/Don't Walk signals and avoid jaywalking in cities, simply because cars will not slow down since you're not supposed to be there. Also, take good notice of the dedicated bike lanes when crossing any street to avoid dangerous situations as bikers tend to drive fast and have right of way on these lanes. On the beach: Don't bathe alone. Don't get too far away from land. Don't jump head first in shallow water. Swim along the coast rather than away from it. In some areas undertow is a danger, but will mostly be signed at the beach. On many beaches, flags inform of water quality. A blue flag means excellent water quality, green flag means good water quality, red flag means that bathing is not advised. A sign with the text "Badning forbudt" means that bathing is forbidden. Obey these signs, as it often means that the water is polluted with poisonous algae, bacteria, or chemicals, or that there is a dangerous undertow. In the city: A few districts in major cities should be avoided at night by the unwary, or by lone women.In an emergency dial 112 (medical help/fire brigade) or 114 (police). This is toll free, and will work even from cell phones even without a SIM card.
