Summary: The cost of living in Denmark is generally high, especially in the larger cities. A nice one bedroom apartment in Denmark can cost anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000 per month, while a nice two bedroom apartment can cost from $1,500 to $3,000 per month. The cost of dinner at a moderately priced restaurant in Denmark is usually around $20 to $30 per person.

Is the cost of living in Denmark high?

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Denmark, they wrote:

"The cost of living in Denmark is generally considered to be high, with prices for basic necessities such as food, housing, and transportation being significantly higher than in many other countries. Denmark also has a high rate of taxation, which can add to the overall cost of living. However, the high cost of living is offset by the high quality of life in Denmark, with excellent public services, a strong economy, and a high standard of living," remarked one expat in Denmark.
