Estimated living costs per month

The standard of living is high and the economy performs above the European average. Accommodation, food, transport and leisure are therefore relatively expensive in Denmark compared to many other countries. However, salaries are correspondingly high, and many services such as medical treatment and schools are paid for via taxes and the Danish welfare system, so that no user fees are charged.

Housing: 350-600 Euro
Meals: 200 Euro
Books: 40 Euro
Local transportation: 50 Euro
Estimated per month: Approx. 890 Euro
