"Door locks" Copenhagen Local Custom Tip by HORSCHECK

Copenhagen Local Customs: 128 reviews and 140 photos

  Scandinavian door handle and lock

In Scandinavia door locks or keys often have to be turned contrary to how you are used to turning them to open or close a door.
For example, in Germany a door with a door handle on the right side is usually locked by turning the key clockwise, whereas in Scandinavia you might have to turn it anti-clockwise.
