In general, tipping is rather uncommon in Scandinavian countries, as it is in Denmark. Neither in restaurants nor at the airport do the employees expect an extra bonus for the service rendered. In many places, a friendly and frequent “Tack”, Takk” or “Tak” (“Thank you” in Swedish, Norwegian and Danish) is quite sufficient. However, if you want to express your satisfaction and show your appreciation, you are welcome to round up the amount in the restaurant or leave a few coins on the counter.
