A safe place to bring kids

Denmark is a safe country. Danes are informal and relaxed, and children are normally welcome everywhere. It is not uncommon to see pushchairs left outside cafes and restaurants with sleeping children. This is a safe and common practice in Denmark and Danes are happy to let their little ones sleep in peace outside whilst keeping a close eye on them from inside. Danish restaurants are normally equipped with highchairs for children, so just ask for one, when you enter.
