The currency of Denmark is the Danish Krone (sign: kr; code: DKK). This is also the official currency of the autonomous provinces of Greenland and the Faroe Islands. Even though Denmark is part of the European Union, it did not join the “Euro land”.
The plural form of Denmark’s currency is “kroner”.
All power sockets in Copenhagen provide a standard voltage of 230V with a standard frequency of 50Hz. You can use all your equipment in Copenhagen if the outlet voltage in your own country is between 220V-240V. This is the case in most of Europe, Australia, the United Kingdom and most countries in Africa and Asia.
The Danish Health Authority limits the amount and type of medication that can be carried into the country. Generally, any type of medication that contains amphetamine, benzodiazepine, methylphenidate, and other euphoriants has import restrictions, which limits the amount that can be carried into Denmark to a 30-day supply.
Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup is the main international airport serving Copenhagen, Denmark, the rest of Zealand, the Øresund Region, and a large part of southern Sweden including Scania.
Located in the busy city enter, the Copenhagen Central train station is the biggest railway hub in Denmark, serving dozens of domestic and international routes on a daily basis. It was built on a place where the first-ever Copenhagen train station was located and opened its doors in 1911. The station boasts 7 platforms, 13 tracks, and a wide choice of in-house facilities, such as various restaurants and pubs, a post office, a bank as well as many others.
Copenhagen’s public transport is reliable, and the Metro, s-trains and busses (including waterbuses) can all be accessed with the same ticket. All you need to know is how many zones you will pass on your journey.
Sustainable transport is one big piece of the carbon neutrality puzzle. From 2019, Copenhagen’s public buses and harbour buses, or ferries, will be using electricity, phasing out the use of diesel fuel, says Kabell.
There are 675,000 bicycles and just 120,000 cars in Copenhagen, meaning bikes outnumber cars by more than five-to-one. So it’s perhaps not so surprising that in 2016 more bikes crossed the city than cars for the first time since records began in 1970 – a real milestone.
