Canadians must have a valid passport to enter the country, and it must be valid for at least three months after departure. Work and student visas are required, and students will be required to show proof of funds for their trip. Business visas are not required and tourist visas are required only for stays of longer than 90 days.

Since the country is part of the Schengen area, a group of 26 European countries that common visa rules, you are permitted to travel within the countries without additional travel visas or documentation.

An international driving permit is recommended, but not required. Denmark is known for its dedication to the environment, so bicycles often take precedence over cars, and cycling is one of the best ways to explore Copenhagen.

The official currency of Denmark is the Danish krone (DKK). ATMs are widely available, and credit cards are accepted at most businesses. The best time of the year to visit is during the summer (June to August), when the average temperature is about 20°C.

Copenhagen is at the centre of the tourist industry in Denmark. Simply walking the streets, taking in the sights and enjoying the local cuisine is enough for most travellers. If you plan to explore the city in detail, be sure to check out Tivoli Gardens, Christiansborg Palace, the National Museum of Denmark, the National Gallery of Denmark, Nyhavn, the Round Tower, Amalienborg Palace and the Open Air Museum.

Other places to consider adding to your travel itinerary include Kronborg Castle (the setting for Shakespeare’s Hamlet), Egeskov Castle and the Hans Christian Andersen Museum.
