Love and tolerance ?️‍??

Back in 1989, our little kingdom made history by being the first country in the world to legally recognise same-sex couples. We've all come a long way since then, but one thing you can guarantee is that you will be experience tolerance, freedom and equality in Denmark. And not least at our many colourful celebrations throughout the year. Let's party! ?



Where to stay

It's easy - you can stay anywhere! In our cities, all hotels are LGBTI+-friendly and if you are looking for somewhere to stay outside of the big cities, you won't have any problem either! Go super Danish and stay in a summerhouse near the beach, or combine a city trip with a stay in the country - the best of both worlds!
