Airports in Denmark
There are four international airports in Denmark, 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. The reason is its close proximity to the famous park, being only 2 km away from each other.
