Which plugs and sockets are there in Denmark?
In Denmark the plugs and sockets are type E and K.
Type E: This type is of French origin. This socket also works with connector C and with connector F if it has an additional pinhole.
Type K: This type is of Danish origin. This socket also works with connector C, connector E, and connector F.
What voltages and frequencies are there in Denmark?
You can use your electrical appliances in Denmark if the standard voltage in your country is between 220-240V (as in the UK, Europe, Australia and most parts of Asia and Africa). Manufacturers take these small deviations into account. If the standard voltage in your country is in the range of 100V – 127V (as in the US, Canada, and most South American countries), you will need a voltage converter in Denmark. You can also consider a combined plug adapter / voltage converter.
Do I need a travel adapter for Denmark?
Yes, for Denmark you need a travel adapter for special cases. C-type and K-type connectors are used. Type C is compatible with the local plugs common in Germany, but the coverage is not 100%. If you want to be on the safe side, please purchase a travel adapter in advance.
As a rule, however, you can get by without a travel adapter. To charge a cell phone, for example, you will often find a type C connector in Danish bathrooms. This is the two-pin connector that every radio or hairdryer in our home has.
Get a travel adapter to be on the safe side.
At Amazon or on other shopping sites, possibly also on ferries, you can buy adapters very cheaply.
