Which countries use the Danish Krone?

Danish Krone is the official currency of Denmark. It’s valid in Greenland[1], too. There’s also a fixed Danish Krone exchange rate on the Euro.

DKK is also accepted on the southerly Faroe Islands[2], which are under Danish territory. Faroese Krone features its own distinct banknotes. 


Can I use Euros in Denmark?

Unfortunately, not. Euros are occasionally accepted at airports and other tourist spots, but DKK is the national currency. Danish citizens have repeatedly voted against taking the Euro[3].

How expensive is Copenhagen?

Denmark’s capital is one of the EU’s priciest cities[9]. A bottle of water alone can cost around 9 kr from a supermarket. We advise picking up a Copenhagen Card[10] to cut down on spending while you visit — you could save up to half of your costs on tourist destinations!


Why doesn’t Denmark use the Euro?

Denmark initially opted out of the Euro in 1992[11] as part of the Maastricht Treaty. Then in 2000, Denmark held a referendum on introducing the Euro, which was defeated by a margin of 6.5%. The country has a strong desire to retain its historic currency.
