Regarding practice arrangements, Denmark is a very kid-friendly country, as many attractions, restaurants, hotels, major stores and regional trains offer you quiet spots, changing rooms and child seats.


Public playgrounds

Denmark is covered with well-equipped public playgrounds. These are great places to take your children and perhaps get to know some local Danish children. Public playgrounds are primarily in parks, but you can also find playgrounds in some forests.

A safe place to bring kids

Denmark is a safe country. Danes are informal and relaxed, and children are generally welcome everywhere. It is not uncommon to see pushchairs left outside cafes and restaurants with sleeping children.

It is a safe and common practice in Denmark and Danes are happy to let their little ones sleep in peace outside whilst keeping a close eye on them from inside. You can typically borrow highchairs for children in Danish restaurants, so ask for one when you enter.

Discounts for children at hotels

Many hotels in Denmark offer free accommodation for children under 12 years old when they sleep in their parents' beds. Check with your hotel at the time of booking to find out about discounts, rules and pricing.
