Denmark uses Central European Time CET and Central European Summer Time CEST. CET is UTC +0100 and CEST is UTS +0200. Denmark's latitude and longitude is 56° 00' N and 10° 00' E. Therefore the one hour offset between CET and UTC is not surprising. Notice that Denmark’s latitude is relatively high. Because of this there will be a big difference between the length of the days depending on the season. Because of this daylight savings time is very useful for Denmark.
