In Denmark official permits for shooting on location are not required other that the normal consent of the owner of property or location or the authorities responsible.
Blocking of public roads requires a permit from the municipal office and then local police. If needed, permission can be given to dispatch local Police Home Guard to control traffic.
Contact with the police - regardless of municipality - should be directed to the main office of Fyns Politi:
