Religious Resources

The official religion of Denmark, as stated in the Danish Constitution, is Evangelical Lutheran. Approximately 85% of the Danish population is Evangelical Lutheran, 3% are Roman Catholic, and approximately 4% of the population is Muslim.

If you are interested in practicing your faith while in Denmark, representatives from various religious groups are invited to the DIS Activities Fair where you can reach out to religious communities within your first days of being in Copenhagen.
