Brazil–Denmark relations are foreign relations between Brazil and Denmark. Brazil has an embassy in Denmark, and Denmark has an embassy in Brazil.[1][2] Diplomatic relations were established in 1828, after a treaty of commerce and navigation were signed.[3] In 1922, a Danish cultural office were opened in Rio de Janeiro.[4] In 1929, the hundredth anniversary of diplomatic relations were held with festivities in Brazil.[5] On 30 July 1936, a commercial agreement were signed.[6]

In 2008, Brazil's total exports to Denmark amounted to 2,1 billion DKK (roughly 1,4 billion R$), while Danish exports to Brazil turned out to be $1,7 billion.[7]
