Denmark Mailing Address Formats and Other International Mailing Information

for mailing letters or packages to or from Denmark,
such as postal rates to (or from) Denmark, finding Danish addresses, Danish postcodes, etc.

When mailing an envelope or postcard, leave at least the bottom 16 millimeters (5/8 inch) blank on both front and back. (The postal service's reading and sorting machines might need this space to print bar codes on your mail.)

Chris Herborth's Example:

Thanks to Peter Mogensen, we have an entry for Danish addresses:

Peter Mogensen                  Name
c/o Fictional Company           Office or whatever (optional)
Niels Bohrs Alle 23, 1330       Street address
floor 13                        More address (optional)
Dalum                           Local area or village (optional)
5230 Odense M                   Zip code and postal district
Odense                          City (optional)
Danmark                         Country (optional)

The city is optional, only the postal district is relevent, so a minimal address would be:

Peter Mogensen
Niels Bohrs Alle 23, 1330
5230 Odense M
