In and out of Europe

Introduced back in 1875, the word 'krone' literally means ‘crown’ in English. Although Denmark is in the EU, you’ll find that only a few shops and restaurants in the larger cities will accept the euro as payment. Danish people participated in a referendum back in 2000, with the majority voting against joining the euro. The krone is also used in the Danish overseas territories of the Faroe Islands and Greenland.

Coins and banknotes

Coins available are 50 øre (half a krone), 1, 2, 5, 10 and 20kr. Notes are available in 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000kr. In practice, 5, 10 and 20kr coins are among the most commonly-used in circulation.

A little loose change can be useful, while 50kr notes are also handy for small purchases such as drinks, snacks or cab fares. Credit cards such as Visa and MasterCard (known as Access or Euro-card locally) are accepted in many places, although not in supermarkets.
