Number of overnight stays of tourists in Denmark in 2019, by country of origin

In 2019, German tourists spent the most overnight stays in Denmark, aside from domestic travelers. Visitors from Germany notably accounted for roughly 16.8 million overnight stays that year. The second and third most common origins of tourists in Denmark were Norway and Sweden. In 2019, over 2.3 million overnight stays were made by Norwegians, whereas 1.7 million bookings were registered by Swedes.

International tourism

In 2019, a record-breaking 56.1 million overnight stays were registered in Denmark, of which 28.9 million were made by international tourists. Compared to the rest of Scandinavia, Denmark is by far the most visited country, and the expenditure from international tourists is expected to reach around 62 billion Danish kroner by 2028.

The coronavirus outbreak

According to a similar forecast for 2028, the expenditure of domestic tourists is estimated to exceed that of international tourists. Danes are expected to spend 85.4 billion Danish kroner while traveling in their own country. Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus and the following lockdown of the country in March 2020, the number of tourists dropped drastically, resulting in strikingly few overnight stays. This was particularly the case in March and April 2020, but as of May 2020, the number of overnight stays started to recover.
