Whether you’re cycling through Copenhagen, discovering Scandinavian dining such as musk ox or skyr curd, visiting Legoland in Jutland or heading to the Roskilde Music Festival, you will find that a few Danish Kroner will come in handy for whatever it is you plan to do on your Denmark holiday. Luckily, at Travel Money Oz, we can help you organise your DKK before you go, so you don’t need to take up any holiday time doing it when you get there!
Sometimes referred to as the Danish Crown, DKK is the official currency of Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. The euro has not been adopted by Denmark, but the krone is pegged to it. Greenland uses the DKK as its sole official currency, while the Faroe Islands use a localised, non-independent version of it, known as Faroese krona, pegged at par to the DKK. Their coins are identical to the DKK< but their banknotes are different.
Importing or exporting local or foreign currency is restricted to EUR 10,000 (or the equivalent). Any amounts above this that are brought into Denmark, or taken out, must be declared.
If you want to get your DKK sorted before your holiday, you can order your foreign exchange at any of our 120+ stores in Australia or order it online whenever you want and just pick up instore at your convenience.
