The national currency in Denmark is Danish kroner (DKK). Prices are always relative depending on the living expenses in your home country. That being said, it is safe to say that Denmark is usually defined as quite an expensive country to visit in terms of accommodation, dining and drinking although it is, as in all countries, always possible to find a somewhat “cheap” alternative.
Accommodation is always more expensive if you prefer staying in or very close to the city center. If you are travelling on a budget you can actually get a bed in a hostel in the heart of Copenhagen for 18 € whereas you should expect to pay around 130 € for a decent hotel in a great location.
If you are you up for dining out you won’t fall short of choices. Danes love to eat and drink so you will be in good hands. For budget eating there are plenty of hotdog stands and kebab places around enabling you to feed your hunger for around 3 – 4 € – make that 6 € if you want a coke to quench your thirst as well. If you want to actually sit down for a few dishes in a nice restaurant expect to pay around 40 € – drinks not included.
A beer from a supermarket will cost you about 1 €. If you prefer heading to a bar you should expect to pay around 5 € for a pint of beer, the same for a glass of wine and somewhere between 7 – 10 € for cocktails.
