Prices in Denmark

The prices in Denmark are really high. This applies to grocery shopping, accommodation, transport, as well as tickets to tourist attractions and souvenirs. Denmark is one of the Scandinavian countries that are at the forefront when it comes to prices in Europe. Both earnings and expenses are simply high here.
The currency in Denmark is the Danish Krone (DKK), the value of which is approximately 0.60 groszy. So you can pretty quickly convert the Danish prices by simply dividing them in half. The highest cost for tourists visiting this country will definitely be accommodation and food, especially if you have to eat out.
Prices in Denmark for accommodation, food in pubs and transport, whether by public or intercity transport, are very high. Of course, as everywhere else, this is influenced by the distance from the center and attractions, because the further they are, the lower they are. In addition, the capital city – Copenhagen is the most expensive, but it will also be expensive in Nyborg, Vejle and Roskilde. In smaller towns, you can expect slightly lower prices. However, anyway, when you leave for Denmark, you have to be prepared for large expenses.

Accommodation prices in Denmark

Accommodation prices in Denmark are very high. Even a night in an ordinary hostel will not be cheap accommodation. If someone is limited by a not too high budget, then they have to look for accommodation outside the city center or promotional accommodation on one of the well-known internet portals.

Average accommodation prices in Denmark are as follows:

  • a night in a hostel costs around 300 DKK
  • accommodation in a room with shared bathroom 400 DKK
  • an overnight stay in a two-star hotel is already an expense of 650 DKK
  • a night in a three-star hotel facility costs around 890 DKK
  • accommodation in a 4-star hotel costs an average of DKK 1,190
  • and for the most luxurious accommodation you have to pay from DKK 1230 upwards

Prices for public transport and intercity transport in Denmark

The prices of moving around Denmark, whether by public transport or intercity transport, are very high. Just look at the cost of a single local transport ticket. The way out of the situation is to move around the city by rented bicycle, which is a very popular means of transport among the inhabitants of Denmark. The cost of renting it for the whole day is around 75-90 DKK. Of course, this option will be perfect in favorable weather conditions. Otherwise, you will have to use expensive public transport.

Average prices of public transport in Denmark:

  • a single one-way ticket costs between 20 and 27 DKK
  • a single ticket for all zones in a given city costs 108 DKK
  • a day-long ticket for public transport costs over 130 DKK

However, intercity travel, whether by train or bus, is not cheaper at all. Unfortunately, tickets for this type of connection are one of the most expensive in Europe. For example, the cost of a train ride from Copenhagen to Odense is over 300 DKK, while the route from the Danish capital to Aarhus costs almost 400 DKK. On the other hand, a train ticket from Aalborg to Aarhus costs almost 195 DKK. So it’s not cheap. Bus connections from a well-known carrier – Filxbus have slightly lower prices and it is worth looking for a little cheaper intercity connections in Denmark.

Taxi and fuel prices in Denmark

Taxi prices in Denmark are very high, even for local residents who only use them as a last resort. You have to pay between 36 and even 75 DKK for the very start of the course. Additionally, you also need to add between 10 and 25 DKK for each kilometer traveled. On the other hand, an hour of waiting for a taxi in Denmark costs from 250 to 550 DKK.
Fuel prices in Denmark are also high. For a liter of 95 petrol, we will pay between 10 and 12 DKK here, while for a liter of diesel fuel an average of 10.50 DKK. It is worth mentioning that most of the car parks in the city are paid. However, to get to Copenhagen, you need to cross a toll bridge (Bridge over the Great Belt), for which the car has to pay DKK 245, one way!

Food prices in shops in Denmark

Food prices in shops in Denmark are high, and compared to the rest of Europe, they are only higher in Norway and Switzerland. This is especially true for meat, fruit and vegetables, as well as cold cuts. When it comes to cheaper products, unfortunately, they are only those highly processed, i.e. not very healthy.
To save a little, it is worth shopping in Denmark in cheaper stores, such as Netto, Aldi, Fakta and REMA 1000. However, it is better not to do big shopping in such supermarket chains as: Kvickly, Irma, Fotex, SPAR, SuperBrugsen and Dagli’Brugsen . The prices of the food in them are just ridiculously high!
It is also worth knowing that in the evenings some products, especially such as bread, are discounted. However, if we need something while exploring, it is worth visiting the 7-Eleven stores, where food prices may even be slightly lower than in those more expensive supermarkets. In general, there are no small shops in Denmark.

Meal prices in restaurants in Denmark

Food prices in restaurants in Denmark are very high. In addition, their cost is influenced by the exact location of a given premises, the closer to the center or any tourist attraction, the more expensive it is. A meal in a cheap restaurant in Denmark costs an average of 125 DKK, and for a three-course dinner in a slightly better place, we will spend 300 DKK.
The way out of the situation is street food or a visit to the popular fast food. The favorite delicacy in Denmark are herring sandwiches (as in other Scandinavian countries) and hot dogs. Stalls with this type of food can be found here in every city and town.
