Denmark Currency and Bank information - TravelPuppy.com

Notes are in denominations of DKR1000, 500, 200, 100 and 50. Coins are in denominations of DKR20, 10, 5, 2 and 1, and 50 and 25 øre.

Currency exchange

ATMs are available throughout Denmark. Personal cheques cannot be used by visitors in Denmark and some banks may refuse to exchange large foreign bank notes.

Credit & debit cards

American Express, MasterCard, Diners Club and Visa are widely accepted, as well as Eurocheque cards. Check with your credit or debit card company for details of merchant acceptability and other services available.

Travellers cheques

Travellers Cheques can be cashed by banks and hotels, and be used at most restaurants and shops. To avoid additional exchange rate charges, travellers are advised to take travellers cheques in Euros, Pounds Sterling or US Dollars.

Currency restrictions

No limitations on the import of either local or foreign currencies, although declarations should be made for very large amounts. Export of local currency over DKr50,000 is allowed if it can be proved that the amount was declared on import, or acquired by the conversion of foreign currency. There is no limit on the export of foreign currency, except from gold coins.
