Postal codes in Denmark

Danish postal codes have four digits, except for five special purpose 3-digit codes. The self-governed territories of Greenland[1] and the Faroe Islands have 4- and 3-digit codes, respectively.

2-digit postcode areas Denmark (defined through the first two postcode digits; Map without Bornholm)

New regulations add the country code DK to the postal codes, but in practice it is most often omitted.

The code is written before the city name.

Examples:
1000 København C (Copenhagen City)
6100 Haderslev
DK-9000 Aalborg

Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark
Asiatisk Plads 2
DK-1448 Copenhagen K

or in Danish

Udenrigsministeriet
Asiatisk Plads 2
1448 København K - not necessarily with the DK - Be aware that the DK or Denmark must be used when mailed from abroad.

The postal codes follow a geographic pattern and most Danes can tell which region an address belongs to based on the postal code alone.
