Cost of Vacation in Denmark 2020 Visa Cost and Places to Visit.

Vacation in Denmark – You will not know how beautiful and fun-filled Denmark is for a vacation until you decide to give a try. Many people visit Denmark with plans of seeing the Little Mermaid statue, Lego-land, or just to enjoy the beautiful landscapes and interact with the friendly Natives. This Scandinavian country is north of Germany and south of Norway and Sweden.

Vacation in Denmark

The mainland of Denmark, also known as Jutland, is attached to Germany; however, there are also several Danish islands. The two major islands are Zealand, home to Copenhagen (the capital), and Funen. These islands sit upon the ostersoen Sea.

While Denmark is part of the European Union, it has opted out of the European monetary system, maintaining its currency, the krone. Denmark is also part of the Schengen Area, making it less of a hassle to cross its borders from within other countries that are part of this area.

Cost of Vacation in Denmark - Top Beautiful Places

Denmark is a socially, economically, and politically progressive country. The country ranks highly with regard to health care, education, democratic governance, human development, and income equality. Not to mention, it is one of the least corrupt countries in the world. On top of all this, Denmark is rich in culture, natural beauty, and stunning architecture.

Language of Denmark

The Kingdom of Denmark has only one official language, Danish, the national language of the Danish people, but there are several minority languages spoken, namely Faroese, German, and Greenlandic.

Currency of Denmark

In Denmark, the currency used is the Danish Krone. The Danish Krone is abbreviated as DKK. Most local price tags in Denmark will display the Kr or DKR for the pricing on individual items. Denmark is also known to have no universal currency.

Climate of Denmark

The climate in Denmark is pleasant in the summertime (May-August). Typical daytime temperatures in the midsummer are a little more than 20 degrees C. May is a specially charming month, as the spring is at its height. September can often be very rainy. Winter in Denmark can be quite cold.

Accommodation Cost in Denmark

Hostel dorms begin at 200 DKK per night and that usually gets you a 12 person or more dorm room. Smaller dorms are around 240 DKK. Hotels in Denmark aren’t cheap and expect to pay around 685 DKK per night or more for a hotel.

Hotels outside major cities start around 450 DKK. Shared rooms on Airbnb can be found for around 325 DKK, while an entire apartment or home will cost closer to 900 DKK.

Again, prices will be lower outside of the larger cities. If you’re on a budget, campsites cost between 55-95 DKK per night. To stay at any campsite you will need the Camping Key Europe card. The card costs around 110 DKK. If you only plan to camp one night, you can get a transit card, for 35 DKK.

Average Cost of Food in Denmark

Food in Denmark is pretty expensive. If you are going to eat out in a restaurant, be prepared to pay around 75-115 DKK for a cheap meal during lunchtime. Dinner time meals will be closer to 135-205 DKK, which adds up quickly.

You can find cheap hot dog vendors for around 25-35 DKK. Kebab and pizza shops will be your cheapest bet when it comes to eating out. As for groceries, expect to spend around 320 DKK per week. Netto and Lidl are the budget grocers, so stick to them if you can.

Transportation Costs in Denmark

Train travel across Denmark (Jutland to Copenhagen) costs around 550 DKK. Buses start around 308 DKK. The closer you get to the travel date the higher the cost so be sure to book in advance if you can — it makes a huge difference.

The train from the airport to the Copenhagen center is 40 DKK. Local trains and buses are 24 DKK for a two-zone ticket. Budget flights to and from Denmark are easy to find as the airport is one of the major hubs in Scandinavia. Buses and trains connect to every nearby country, as well, making it a very easy country to get in and out of.

Activities Cost in Denmark

Museums typically cost 70 DKK. There are a number of full-day activities to do in this region and most involve going out and exploring the beautiful countryside. Most day trips cost 340 DKK or more.

Top Beautiful Places in Denmark:

Just in case you’re not convinced about how beautiful Denmark is, here are five beautiful places in Denmark that will grab your attention:

1. Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen

Amalienborg Palace, Copenhagen

In the Frederiks Staden quarter of Copenhagen, you’ll find Amalienborg Palace and its tranquil gardens by the water. Originally built as residences for the nobility, the four palaces face onto the square.

The Danish Royal Family took occupancy after a fire at Christiansborg in 1794, and the palace remains their winter home. The identical palaces form an octagon, and it’s claimed the design is based on plans for a square in Paris that later became the Place de la Concorde.

Built-in a light Rococo style, the buildings combine both German and French stylistic elements. The Soldiers of the Royal Guard, in their bearskins and blue uniforms, are a particular draw for visitors.

 2. LEGO House, Billund

LEGO House, Billund

The LEGO House in Billund, the birthplace of the iconic LEGO brick, is a family attraction that all ages will enjoy. Those on a budget or just quickly passing through will appreciate the admission-free areas, which include nine themed playgrounds; three outdoor squares; and the Tree of Life, a 15-meter LEGO tree filled with details.

Tourists can also choose to buy admission to explore the Experience Zones, each representing the classic brick’s colors – Red for creativity, Green for role-playing, Blue for cognitive challenges, and Yellow for emotions. Visitors also have a chance to learn all about the history of LEGO and its founders.

3. Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen

Tivoli Gardens, Copenhagen

When visiting Copenhagen, many visitors make a beeline for this iconic recreation space. Dating from 1843, Tivoli is the inspiration behind the world-famous Disney theme parks, and here, you’ll find a huge range of attractions including a roller coaster, roundabouts, puppet theaters, restaurants, cafés, gardens, food pavilions, and even a Moorish-styled concert hall.

Known across the world, Tivoli has appeared in numerous movies and is a true symbol of the city. At night, firework displays illuminate the sky, and in winter, the gardens are adorned with lights for the Christmas season. During the summer, you can catch free rock concerts on Friday nights.

 4. Little Mermaid

Little Mermaid

The statue of The Little Mermaid sits on a rock in the Copenhagen harbor at Langelinie in Denmark. Tourists visiting for the first time are often surprised by the relatively small size of the statue. The Little Mermaid statue is only 1.25 meters high and weighs around 175 kg.

Designed by Edvard Eriksen, the statue was erected in 1913 to commemorate a play of the Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen. The poor lady has lost her head several times but has each time been restored.

Copenhagen officials announced that the statue may be moved further out in the harbor, as to avoid further vandalism and to prevent tourists from climbing onto it.

5. Lyngby Open-Air Museum (Frilandsmuseet), Copenhagen

Lyngby Open-Air Museum (Frilandsmuseet), Copenhagen

Just over 15 kilometers outside Copenhagen, you’ll find Lyngby Open-Air Museum, part of the Danish National Museum, and a must-see for many visitors to Denmark. Occupying 35 hectares, there are authentic farmhouses, agricultural buildings, dwellings, and mills from across the country in this “living museum.”

There are also ancient breeds of domestic animals, magnificent historic gardens to wander through, atmospheric old houses from Schleswig-Holstein, and Sweden, as well as numerous picnic sites. You can even take a horse-drawn carriage around the grounds.

Knowing how beautiful Denmark is for a vacation, I believe you will start bag-packing today-only if you don’t want to miss out on the fun. Next, go for a booking.
Then lastly, share this article with someone who wants to catch the fun with you. Have a fun-filled vacation!
