Practical information


The currency of Denmark is the Danish krone (DKK). We recommend that you exchange to the local currency, or verify your bank’s policy for paying with credit/debit cards abroad. Most shops accept major credit/debit cards.

Electrical standards

In Denmark the standard voltage is 230V and standard frequency is 50Hz. Power plugs and sockets are of type C (Europlug, for small appliances), E (French), F (German “Schuko”), and K. A good rule of thumb is that type C and F will always work (even though not always grounded, depending on the socket).

Emergency numbers

Call (+45) 112 in case of emergency for police, fire and ambulance services.
