Denmark was present at the Eurovision Song Contest 1986, held in Bergen, Norway.

The Danish national final to select their entry, the Dansk Melodi Grand Prix, was held on 22 February at the Danmarks Radio Studios in Copenhagen, and was hosted for the ninth straight time by radio and television host Jørgen de Mylius. Five regional juries across Denmark selected the winning song out of five songs that survived a semifinal round.

The winning entry was "Du er fuld af løgn," performed by Lise Haavik and composed by John Hatting.
