Getting around Denmark can be done using various methods. Long-distance bus services operate, along with a national rail service, although national train tickets can be expensive. The only way to reach some of the smaller islands is by ferry, and domestic flights are also run – however if you are not in any rush then the trains can work out cheaper. The roads are toll free, in general, aside from the two major bridges – the Storebæltbroen between Zealand and Funen, and the Øresundbroen between Copenhagen and Malmo. The fact that Denmark is spread across various islands make the country a very beautiful place to visit, combining glorious coastal views with beautiful inland The national language is Danish, although English is widely spoken, particularly in the larger cities. German is commonly spoken as well. The currency is the Danish krone, although in some beach resorts in Jutland and on Bornholm Island, places will accept the Euro. Denmark is quite an expensive country, with all consumer sales including a 25% sales tax, which is included, by law, in the display prices. If you are from outside the EU/Scandinavia, it is possible to get some of your sales tax refunded when you leave.
