    Denmark wildcamping / LPG etc (INFO)



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Hi

    Just been in Denmark for 2 weeks and "wild camped" every night. When I was asking for information I heard from many sources that "wild camping" isn't allowed and is illegal. Well - thats wrong ish.

    Wild camping, as in "camping", as in getting out chairs/tables/BBQ etc is illegal.

    Wild camping, as in simply "overnight parking" is permitted unless it says otherwise.

    (We only ever "park overnight")

    There are many signs with a tent/caravan crossed out - this means "no camping" - overnight parking still is fine.

    There are some signs, fewer, with a motorhome crossed out, or "no overnight parking", or similar where its clear you can't stay.

    But generally, absolutely no problems whatsoever anywhere.

    In addition there are many water/waste points (free) - enough for us anyway - though these aren't listed in "All the Aires" or bordatlas or camperstop! Weird - only found these last week and glad we did! Details here: Vand / Wasser / Water

    Probably got another 10 days in Denmark before thinking about coming home.

    So don't let the formal "no wildcamping" put you off Denmark - just use your eyes and common sense!

    /says he sitting next to marina/sea; fresh tap; chemical waste; and free wifi from the marina! (ok - using my long range aerial but hey!)

    Finally - the GPS database I have on my site for LPG seems better than the one in "All the aires" - and there seem to be "enough" LPG stations around.

    Our blog for this trip is here: Trip 07 – Holland, Germany and Denmark >

    Hope this is useful for some!

    edit: Forgot to add, our GPS locations for our wild camping spots are here: http://www.doyourdream.co.uk/resourc...ping-database/ (continually updated)

    Hi Activecampers, Have you been to ROMO, on the North sea. A great sand bank island. I have spent a lot of time there on weekends. You can drive right on the sands and park up for the day, tables and chairs out if you wish. Only thing is you have to be off the sands by 21:00 as no overnighting is permitted. Great sunsets. I agree, there are many places you can just pull in for the night. Very safe country to be in.

    We are off to Denmark in May so I am just doing a bit of forward reading. When we went there a couple of years back we did the east islands (Copenhagen etc), but this time will be on the west mainland peninsular. Last time we found it megga difficult to get LPG so are you SURE that we will find it on the mainland? As we only have LPG fitted gas tanks it is sort of critical.

    I am very interested in what you are alluding to about finding it on your GPS. Please tell more?

    We will naturally fill up before entering Denmark but as we will be there for a month we will probably need to refill somewhere along the way.

    LPG in Denmark

    You can only buy LPG 6 places in Denmark. 3 in Jylland, 2 in Fyn, and 1 place in Sjaelland.

    LPG - EOF

    We Mobile owners in DK are often driving to Harrislee in Germany 1-2 km. from the border, where we can buy LPG for near half price.

    Färber Gas GmbH
    Wester allee 143 - 24941 Flensburg

    N:54° 46' 51'' - E: 9° 23' 47''

    Well - we are also buying beers there for near half price ;-)

    HAUL83 - you could always use Google Translate for many translations - it even speaks the words out - great.
