Denmark is known for its culture of home sharing and Airbnb guests from around the world have been coming to the country to visit beautiful places such as trendy Copenhagen, evolving Aarhus and the stunning coastal areas around the country since the early days of Airbnb. Hosts have opened up their homes across Denmark, giving guests a chance to stay a little longer and explore more of the country. Airbnb is committed to working with national and local governments to establish and integrate the sharing economy in a sustainable and progressive way that works for everyone. By doing so, we will be able to maximise the benefits of hosting in a fair and open manner for governments, hosts and local communities alike.
