Good to know about Denmark

Denmark has a very homogeneous population who all speak Danish. Most Danes speak English fairly well and will be able to help you find your way. Some Danes speak other languages too, such as German.

Geography, flora and fauna
Denmark is a lowland and has a coastal climate. This means that summers don’t get hot; it can often mix with sun and rain. In the past the weather has ranged from very hot sunshine to thunder and strong rain. So be prepared… The nights of July will usually hover around 10-15 C degrees.

Regarding wild life Denmark is also mild and gentle. It is good to be aware that some ticks might be around, due to the forested area and mosquitoes due to the near-by lake. Repellent can prevent some of the bites and tea tree oil ease what cannot be prevented. We will have kits on site to help with removing any possible ticks coming to visit us.

Currency and credit cards
Danish Kroner is the only currency in Denmark, however credit cards are very widely accepted; Mastercard and Visa are common. You will find ATM (cash machines) in many towns and railway stations.

As the site for the People’s Dance to the Sun is rural, there are no shops near to the camp. We advice you to plan for your needs prior to the Ceremony (opening hours in Denmark are usually s between 9:00 and 17:30; banks from 10:00 to 16:00 Monday-Friday), to avoid leaving the camp during our time together. Some people have volunteered to shop for food and other items for the camp that might be needed; in cases of emergency, they can bring back necessities.

In Denmark there is no in-country prefix to the phone numbers or area codes. All numbers have eight digits in them. The country code for Denmark is +45.

Health insurance
Denmark is part of EU and if you live in EU your normal health insurance will be covered. If you live in a non-EU country, we advice you to check whether you are covered.
