Calculating postal prices
Post Nord has an online calculator
, which allows you to calculate the postal price of letters and parcels that you are sending within Denmark and internationally.
Mail boxes in Denmark are red. You will find them outside all post offices and at different locations in villages, towns, and cities.
Letter boxes must be situated on the ground floor in apartment buildings, while letter boxes in old villas, townhouses, and similar must be placed directly at the entrance to the properties.
Moving to a new address
All municipal authorities have a registry of residents. If you move to a new address you are required to notify the municipal authorities within five days
of moving. You should also notify Post Nord to ensure that you will continue receiving mail. Post Nord can also forward all the mail sent to your old address to your new address for up to six months. Read more
Remember to write your name on your letter box
The surname/family names of residents at an address must be on the letter box. Letters sent to a person’s address will be returned to sender if the reciever's name is not clearly stated on the letter box.
