People visit the Blaavand Zoo, after it reopened to the public, in Jutland, Denmark.
Earlier on Monday, the government raised the limit on public gatherings from 10 to 50 and allowed fitness centers and public swimming pools to reopen.
The government said its plan to allow groups of 100 and 200 to gather from July 8 and Aug. 8 respectively, could be changed depending on a possible second wave of coronavirus in the country.
Denmark was one of the first countries in Europe to lock down in early March. The country had registered 593 coronavirus-related deaths on Monday, but the number of coronavirus-related deaths and hospital admissions has fallen since April.
In late May, Denmark and Norway said they would allow tourists to travel between the two countries from mid-June, but said border crossings with Sweden, where the number of COVID-19 infections is higher, would remain restricted.
