I'm fairly certain that joining the European Union in 1973 would retire such a Danish law from 1893. Especially since UTC wasn't defined when the said law was introduced, so the law couldn't have mentioned "not the UTC time".

According to the DK NMI DANIAmet:


"The law on time (Law No 83, 29/03/1893) prescribe that the time in Denmark is determined by mean solar time and not the UTC time."

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
