And while outshined by its world famous rivals, there are four other major amusement parks in the country: Sommerland Sjælland, Bonbonland, Fårup Sommerland, Djurs Sommerland, and a host of smaller one.With its large coastline, Denmark offers ample opportunity for coastal fishing - this, however requires a permit that is available from all post offices at a rate of DKK 100 for a year with no possibility for shorter periods of time.Generally any type of weapon is illegal to own or carry anywhere!There are exceptions for hunting and weapons clubs, but this requires a special permit, and outside the shooting area (hunting grounds or club) the weapon must be concealed and not loaded.

Freshwater fishing is a bit more complicated than coastal fishing in Denmark, however, as there is a host of local communities presiding over the rights to fish in the specific waters, usually in agreement with the land owners where the waters are situated if they aren't owned by the state, but that also means that some stretches of a specific stream or brook may be off-limits, due to the land owner's ownership.
