Denmark is a Scandinavian country, located above Germany. It is a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentary system of government. The country is a member of the European Union, although it has not joined the euro.
The Danish Krone is the currency of Denmark (DKK). Most businesses accept credit cards, but it is always useful to have cash with you. It is not customary to leave a tip since the bill in restaurants already contains a service charge. In any case, tip around 10% if you are satisfied with the service.
The official language of the country is Danish. Learn some expressions in Danish: “hej”= hi; “tak” = thank you; “undskyld” = sorry. “Hygge” is a word that only exists in Danish, which describes a sense of well-being and comfort.
Be punctual, the Danes by rule are not late and like every minute of their time to be productive. Be polite and friendly, the Danes do not like conflict.
Do not be too formal. The Danes are more relaxed people, who usually address each other by "du" (you) and not “Mr." or "Ms."
It is normal to see people dressed in a less formal but conservative way. You can wear a suit and tie or opt for a slightly more relaxed style, while keeping the class and professional look.
When meeting someone for the first time, greet him or her with a handshake. If you are invited to someone's house, bring a bottle of wine and a bouquet of flowers to show your appreciation, and remove your shoes as you enter.
