Car hire in Denmark with SIXT

SIXT makes car hire in Denmark convenient, pleasurable and easy. The country is one of contrasts, with long summer days and equally long winter nights, so choose your model based on when you’ll be visiting. In warmer weather you can strike out into the countryside, perhaps in tough yet comfortable MPV. Exploring the country’s main cities like Copenhagen, Aarhus and Odense is a good idea when it’s colder, in a roomy saloon with climate control. All our vehicles are only 3-month-old on average – we offer affordable luxury, providing premium cars from brands like BMW and Jaguar at affordable prices. You’ll be assisted by fluent English speakers at all our branches.

We make it easy for you to tailor your car hire in Denmark to suit your individual needs and preferences. If you’re on holiday you can get a long-term rental, and if you’re only in Denmark for a quick business meeting or two, we offer daily rentals, as well as anything in-between. Models available include the abovementioned saloons and SUVs, plus compact and economy cars and multi-seaters like minibuses. You can book the extras you need in advance – perhaps a sat nav unit or child seats for the younger ones.

Best places to visit in Denmark

  • Copenhagen: Explore the landmarks in the Danish capital. Amalienborg Palace is its historical centre and residence of the royal family. Or drive about 10 min out of town to the world’s oldest amusement park at Bakken. The Glyptoteket museum contains ancient and modern art, and Rosenborg Castle houses Denmark’s Crown Jewels. Of course, there’s also Copenhagen’s famous Little Mermaid sculpture.
  • Aarhus: Set on the Jutland coast and a major fishing centre in Medieval times, you can get a sense of local history and culture by visiting Den Gamle By (the Old Town), comprising around 75 16th-century buildings of all descriptions. By contrast, the ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum boasts modern art and ultra-modern architecture. The 12th-century Aarhus Cathedral is another important historic landmark.
  • Odense: Known as Denmark’s “garden island”, this is a bit of a global pilgrimage site, as the Hans Christian Andersen’s birthplace. There’s also a commemorative museum bearing his name. Or take about a 15 min drive to Egeskov Castle, the most well-preserved moat castle in Europe, built in 1554. To explore authentic historical Danish rural life, drive about 2 miles to the Funen Open-Air Village.
