Hello respected teachers,

What "DK 1260" "40" and "K" refer to in the following?

Address:
Danish Agency for Science and Higher Education
Bredgade 40
DK-1260
Copenhagen K

Bredgade is the street,

40 is the street address

DK is the international country code for Danmark

1260 is the postcode (Or US name zipcode) for that area of København.

Copenhagen is the international name for København

Copenhagen K is the code for the delivery office (ie postal centre) for that area. (eg K, N, S, Ø, V, etc)



Usually for international addresses you would put this as
Bredgade 40
1260 Copenhagen K
Denmark

But they have put it in another format which is actually required in the Danish postcode with the DK as part of the postcode.

Then you don't have to add Denmark again at the bottom. (although most people from other countries do add the whole name if they are not sure their own postal sorters will know where to look for the country identifier!)
