Currency and Banks

The currency of Denmark is the Danish krone. One krone is divided into 100 Øre. While some shops do accept euros, we recommend that you exchange to the local currency. Most shops also accept major credit cards.

Bank and exchange offices are located in the city center close to the hotels. 

Opening hours:
Monday-Friday: 10.00-16.00
Thursday: 10.00-17.30
Closed Saturdays and Sundays

Credit card/cash points
Cash points accepting major credit cards are conveniently located all over the city.  

VAT
Danish prices include 25 percent Value Added Tax (VAT). It is refundable to persons who are non-EU residents and who are travelling to a non-EU destination. Tax free shopping is possible in many major shops and department stores in Copenhagen.  

Emergencies

In case of an emergency while you are in Copenhagen, always dial 112. It is a free call which will connect you to the police, fire brigade or hospital. If you need a chemist or dentist, there are a few which are open 24 hours.  
More information on doctors, dentists, pharmacies, etc. here.

Dining and Tipping

In Copenhagen, tipping is not a tradition. Service is normally included in the bill at restaurants, hotels and taxis. Thus it is optional whether to round up the bill or not. Waiters and waitresses, taxi drivers etc. earn higher wages than in other countries and are not dependent on tips in the same way.  

Electricity

Denmark, like most other European countries, has 220-volt AC, 50Hz current and uses two-pin continental plugs.  If you visit from the UK and Ireland, you will need an adaptor for electric appliances, whereas North Americans need a transformer in order to use their 110/125V appliances.

Weather

The climate in Copenhagen follows the four seasons of the northern hemisphere, but temperatures can vary considerably during the year. July and August are normally the warmest time of year with an average temperature of 20 degrees Celcius and 68 degrees Fahrenheit. February is generally the coldest with an average of two degrees Celcius and 35 degrees Fahrenheit.
