The Denmark women's national handball team is the national team of Denmark. It is governed by the Dansk Håndbold Forbund and takes part in international handball competitions.

In 1997, they became the first Women's Handball teams to hold all three major titles simultaneously (The World Championship, The Olympic Championship and The Euro Championship). (In 2011, Norway's Women's Handball became the second to do so.).[1]

Denmark women's handball team is the only team (women's and men's) in handball history to win the Olympic Games Handball three consecutive times, earning the gold medal in 1996, 2000, and 2004.

Despite tremendous results, the Danish handball team have seen a steady decline on the national handball scene. As of 2012 the team has not won a gold medal since the EURO Championship 2002 which was held in Denmark. However, after 16 years, they won their first World Championship medal at the 2013 World Championship in Serbia when they came third. It is also the first medal the Danish team has won in 9 years.
