Driving Tips

Driving Tips

Driving in Denmark is a real pleasure with its well-maintained and well-signposted roads while local drivers generally follow the rules of the road and are considerate to others. We recommend driving part of the 3,500 km long Marguerite Route. Marked with daisy signs this scenic route passes over 100 major attractions.

More tips for enjoying driving in Denmark:

  • Drive on the right in Denmark and remember that Kilometres are used for distances and speed limits.
  • Unless otherwise indicated give way to the right.
  • Dipped headlights are required during daylight hours.
  • Danish motorways are toll-free but tolls are required on the Oresund and Storebaelt Bridges.
  • Cycling is very popular in Denmark. Be cautious of cyclists at junctions where they usually have priority.
  • Children less than 1.35m in height require appropriate child seats.
  • Parking is widely available in Denmark and is generally with pay and display meters. In Copenhagen, it is advisable to park on the outskirts and then use local transport.
  • You are responsible for any repair costs incurred if you drive your rental vehicle off paved surfaces.

Top 4 architectural sites

  • The Little Mermaid, Copenhagen and Han at Helsingor
  • Copenhagen Opera House
  • Roskilde Cathedral

The Little Mermaid is one of Copenhagen's most instantly recognisable landmarks. This bronze statue by Edvard Eriksen sits near the city's promenade and is based on the fairy tale by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. She now has a brother in the seated form of Han located in the harbour town of Helsingor. This stainless steel sculpture closes its eyes for a split second every hour. The Copenhagen Opera House designed by Henning Larsen is one of the most modern in the world. Also considered the best equipped in the world this soaring building sits on an island in the harbour. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site Roskilde was the first Gothic cathedral to be built of brick. Its slender spires dominate the skyline in the city of Roskilde on the island of Zealand.

Top 4 Natural Sites

  • Himmelbjerget - The Mountain of Heaven
  • Mons Klint
  • Skagen
  • The Limfjorden

Denmark is a flat country and at just 147 metres Himmelbjerget was once considered its highest natural point. 19th-century scientific surveys revealed that the nearby Mollehoj is slightly higher but Himmelbjerget remains a winner for its scenery and history. The Mons Klint are an impressive stretch of chalk cliffs that fall dramatically into the Baltic Sea off the island of Mon. The Skagen Odde Peninsula has long been a favourite holiday spot with its beaches, dunes and wild landscape while the Limfjorden is a shallow inlet of the North Sea that has played an important part in Danish mythology since Viking days.

Important Film locations

The 1997 Danish-British-American thriller Smilla's Sense of Snow saw many scenes filmed in Denmark including at the Hotel d'Angleterre in Copenhagen. Copenhagen also features in the dark Scandi TV thrillers The Killing and The Bridge. The Oresund Bridge between the city and Malmoe was a major player in the plot of The Bridge. In the stunning film Out of Africa (1985), a house at Rungstedlund played the part of Karen Blixen's family home.

Crossing Borders

Crossing Borders

Cross border rentals are allowed to some European countries but many countries, such as Great Britain, Bulgaria, Slovenia or Estonia are restricted. Crossing a restricted border invalidates all insurances.



Urmet K.

The whole rental process was very positive. The staff was friendly and a pleasant surprise was that we got a better car than we had booked. So very positive experience.

Mette H.

Sixt Hellerup's customer service is top-notch. A very competent employee helped me find the perfect car for my driving needs. Thanks for the excellent treatment.

June R.

My husband and I arrived at the counter and were met by a young lady named Laurla (I think that is how it was spelled). Laurla (Italian is I think her first language) spoke wonderful English and went over the rental contract carefully and then walked us to our car. We needed some help getting used to the silent start-up but overall the experience with staff, the vehicle was excellent. We would recommend your company to anyone who is travelling to Copenhagen.

V K.

I have rented a car from sixt Hellerup several times. The service has always been excellent. customer focused and very professional and friendly staff. They have offered also free upgrades several times when the original car was not available. 5/5 !

Mari K.

Nazariy M.

Ordered online, was quick pick up and was able to drop off at the garage after hours. Professional staff and no problems with a USA drivers license. Great job!

James P.

Very good service. Vehicle provided was perfect for my needs. The vehicle was very clean (like new). The service at the airport was second to none, very polite, professional and gave me all information required. 100% would use SIXT again.

Jakob V.

Sixt do really know how to treat the good customers the best way! Thank you for your always great service!

Jakub K.

I Like this car rental very much, staff is always friendly and quick, cars are very clean and in a good shape.

Torben S.

Nice team. Good quality of cars. They will even upgrade you if you're lucky.


TIP: get the insurance from the counter… they are very very particular about every micro scratch on the vehicle. Normally from a. Rental car company they could consider such things as wear and tear… but here they are very very careful. I would not take the risk (even though I usually don’t get the add on’s)


Other than that the staff and location was nice and the car was new.

Dries D.

Car was reserved, staff waited for me even though flight was delayed and as consequence was outside of their normal opening hours - thanks! Quick pickup and drop off procedure, convenient!

Pablo R.

Everything has been OK. New car. Smart staff. Thanks.

Fernando G.
