Travel Adaptor for Denmark
There are multiple socket types used in Denmark. Type K is the most commonly found so a UK 3 pin to type K adaptor should allow you to connect your appliances in many cases. If you want to be sure though a better option may be to invest in a worldwide adaptor
that is a single unit capable of connecting to multiple socket types.
Please be aware that whilst a travel adaptor will allow you to physically plug a UK 3 pin plug into a different socket it will not change the voltage or frequency of the supply. The mains voltage in Denmark is 230 V which is compatible with all UK appliances (UK voltage is currently specified as 230 V +10% / - 6%).
The frequency is 50 Hz which is the same as the UK.
Special considerations -
Type E was added from July 2008. Type F was added from November 2011. Type C wall sockets are prohibited in houses build after April 1975. All new sockets must be childproof. 400V three-phase power is very common; The plugs/sockets used are either IEC 60309-2, or the Danish IP20 - mostly know as "komfurstik" or "380V-stik". Type C plugs fit into Type K sockets, but the opposite is not true. Denmark"s connectors have standard pin diameter and spacing, but its outlets may have different housing depths which may interfere with some adaptors. Need another travel adaptor? Search by Country
