Climate and Clothing
The weather in Denmark can be very changeable and even in summer nights can be chilly. We recommend you to bring warm clothes, rain gear, house shoes or warm socks at any time of the year.
Citizens of the EU who have a valid European Health Insurance card (EHIC) are covered for most medical treatment in Denmark. You can apply for the EHIC at your local health authority free of cost. You can find more information at http://ec.europa.eu/social/main.jsp?catId=563&langId=en. Please note that third country nationals cannot use their EHIC for medical treatment in Denmark and therefore will need valid travel insurance for the length of their stay at the Ashram.
The national currency is Danish Crowns (1 € = app 7,5 DKK). Please ensure that you bring enough DKK for the length of your stay, as the nearest bank and ATM is app 15 km away. The Ashram accepts Euro, but you'll need DKK for anything else (public transport, shopping, etc).
For citizens from some countries it is necessary to have a visa for Denmark. This is the case for Armenia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Serbia-Montenegro, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, India, and South Africa and others.
