Embark on a fairy tale adventure

Birthplace of renowned fairy tale author Hans Christian Andersen, a visit to Denmark can feel like you’re entering into a children’s storybook. Even the country’s metropolitan capital of Copenhagen is home to some magical sights, such as the Little Mermaid statue, the historical district of Nyhavn, the Tivoli Gardens, and the enchanting Amalienborg Palace.

But, outside of the city’s limits, you’ll find towns and villages brimming with captivating charm, such as the mediaeval city of Odense. Viking enthusiasts can dive into Denmark's Viking past by visiting Ribe, the country's oldest town.

If you’re looking to step back in time and visit a Danish village, plenty of local businesses and tours may require cash payments. We want to make sure you can make the most out of your trip to Denmark, which is why we monitor the exchange rate daily to offer you our most competitive price.

Sell your leftover Danish krone

We’ll buy back your Danish krone notes if you have any left after your holiday.

You can sell your currency in-store, so just pop into your local John Lewis Bureau de Change branch with a valid form of ID and your krone banknotes.
