Denmark first participated at the Olympic Games at the inaugural 1896 Games, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then, except for the sparsely-attended 1904 Games. Denmark has also participated in the Winter Olympic Games several times since 1948, including every Games since 1988.

Danish athletes have won a total of 179 medals, with sailing as the top medal-producing sport. Denmark has won only a single medal at the Winter Games, in curling at the 1998 Winter Olympics.

The National Olympic Committee for Denmark was created in 1905.
