"Det var en yndig tid" (It was a lovely time) was the Danish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1960, performed in Danish by Katy Bødtger.

The song was performed fourth on the night, following Luxembourg's Camillo Felgen with "So laang we's du do bast" and preceding Belgium's Fud Leclerc with "Mon amour pour toi". At the close of voting, it had received 4 points, placing 10th in a field of 13.

The song deals with the "good old days", describing them as a time when courting was much simpler. The description is of life "in the king's old city", which is never named but may have been Copenhagen, given the provenance of the song.

It was succeeded as Danish representative at the 1961 Contest by Dario Campeotto with "Angelique".
