The following list contains the aeronautical radio beacons that were active in Denmark in the mid of the 1950s. All information is outdated and may not be used for navigational purposes.

The list is very incomplete, because especially the military radio beacons are missing.

Warschau-Okęcie airport was equipped with the Standard Beam Approach (SBA) as approach aid.
