How expensive is Copenhagen?
Denmark’s capital is one of the EU’s priciest cities. A bottle of water alone can cost around 9 kr from a supermarket. We advise picking up a Copenhagen Card 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 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.
