You must only park in the direction of the traffic (the right hand side of the road). You can park with two wheels on the kerb where necessary as long as pedestrians are not inconvenienced. If stopping in a place where parking isn't allowed, you can only stay there with the engine running for three minutes. To park in Denmark on non-payable parking you must have a parking disk which you can buy from garages and many shops. The length of time you can park for is indicated in black letters, Saturday times are shown in brackets whilst Sundays are shown in red.
On the roadside, paid parking is by meter or ticket machine. It's not expensive to use roadside parking but you are often limited in time. If you want to par for longer, use the municipal or private car parks.
Illegal parking including staying over your time on a meter is regularly enforced by the police. There is an on the spot fine for this and if you leave your car parked illegally for long enough it will be towed away.
Denmark follows EU guidelines on parking for holders of an EU Disabled Parking Permit but use it only where signs specifically indicate that you can.
