Oudoor activities are the big thing in Denmark and camping is a popular family holiday accomodation. Going camping in Dermark you need to remember to take camping essentials such as: tent, sleeping bag, and materace. If you are staying in a cabin, or a caravan you will have to pay for the provided bed sheets, so it is better to bring your own (being me I would do that for higenic reasons).
You should take pots and pans with you, but there is no necesity to take a cooker, as most (if not all) campgrounds have a kitchen that you can use.
Camping grounds have bathrooms but don't provide toiletries so bring your own, as well as towels.
It is hard to tell what you should take when travelling to Denmark. I always thought that a Scandinavian country would have cooler weather that involves warm clothes but I was surprised. The weather changes are pretty big, so don't forget to take a variety of clothes - short sleaves, long sleaves, jackets, and cardigans. Also it can get very hot in the summer so don't forget your sunscream, or you can get a pretty bad sunburn (just like me!).
If you are travelling to Denmark for active holidays don't forget comfortable shoes - that's the key!
February is generally the coldest month of the year, with an average temperature of just below 0 degrees Celsius. July is the warmest month with an average of approx. 17 degrees celsius.
The fours seasons are distinct in Denmark so dress accordingly. Warm clothing is needed for the late autumn, winter and early spring. In general, people dress informally. You can check the weather forecast on www.dmi.dk. And don't forget your umbrella when going to Denmark, as it rains quite often.
Miscellaneous: I found out it's best to bring ones own sheets to youth hostels. Of course one can rent them there too, but they are really expensive (I once rented one that costed as much as the stay for the night! and that's about twice as expensive these sheets would have been in a shop!)
Luggage and bags:
I brought a large suit case, a small suit case and a small purse.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: It was winter so I had a winter coat, pants, shirts, socks, shoes and my trademark combat boots.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I brought Shampoo, Conditioner, soap, deoderant, make up, girl stuff...
Photo Equipment: A small camera will do.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: You'll need a swimsuit, sandles, shorts for summer, etc.
Miscellaneous: Always have your purse stocked with maps, phone numbers, ID, Passport, a little emergency cash...
Basic garb, but make sure you have a rain coat, wind breaker, and a sweater in the summer.
Walking type tennis shoes are best for travel in my opinion.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: I always bring my own first aid kit. It is a necessity with three children. Basics are band-aids, antibiotic ointment, peroxide, burn cream, tweezers, pain reliever, safety pins, sterile needles, benedryl, and anti-nausea, anti-diarrheal pills.
Photo Equipment: Our digital camera does video spots as well as terrific photos
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: I highly recommend the camping cabins in Skagen. These cabins are well maintained, clean, and inviting. This campground is located not far from the lighthouse. (Right now the name escapes me.)
Miscellaneous: It is very windy in Skagen. Plan for wind chill even in the summer.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Denmark really never gets too warm so make sure to bring warm clothing with you, and a light rainjacket would probably be of some use. We went towards the end of May and had incredible weather. 22C/71F and blue skies 5.5 out of 6 days!
Luggage and bags:
Something small and easy to carry.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: The weather is similar to that of England, very unpredictable! Bring an umbrella, essential at any time of the year, good walking shoes and comfortable clothing. Remember that the summer here is not often too hot so pack a sweater!
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There are many nice beaches around the Copenhagen area and the coountry side is stunning. If you have a few days to spare grab your tent and head for the great outdoors.
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: An umbreally is good to have with you in the summer time - because eventhough it looks to be a dry day - sometimes the sky opens up and let the rain come...
Miscellaneous: If you go there by car, rent a house and plan to stay for a while - bring as much food and drink as you can. It's really expensive there. I was shocked especially about broccoli prices ;-)
