Airports in Denmark
There are four international airports in Denmark which have international flights and the busiest is, of course, Copenhagen Airport. However, you might consider using other airports too, for example, if you want to visit Legoland, then the best option would be Billund Airport which is located only 2 kilometres from the airport.
