Electricity in Denmark
Electrical appliances run at 220V/50Hz. Electrical outlets use a two-prong plug typical for continental Europe. Most laptops will automatically work with 220-230 volts (check the back of your laptop for power input markings).

Tipping
All bills include gratuity, and it is not needed to add a tip. A tip will of course always be appreciated.

Drinking water from the tap
The water from the tap is sufficiently clean for drinking – and well tasting. You should try it out.
