How Much it Cost to Travel to Copenhagen: Detailed Prices

Last Updated: Dec 2023

Easily one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, Copenhagen is underrated in several ways, but it’s also so remote that it’s hard to incorporate into most tours of the continent. The copper domes and pastel harbor homes are even more lovely in person than they are in photos. Copenhagen isn’t cheap, however, so planning ahead is important.

Is Copenhagen Expensive or Cheap?

Copenhagen is a beautiful city and a notoriously good-looking population, but unless you are coming from Sweden, it’s also very expensive. Hotels are of pricey even during the off season, and are worse during the peak summer months.

 

Most of the attractions are also shockingly expensive, so it’s good that strolling around the beautiful neighborhoods and the long Stroget shopping street are free. There are other free things to do, thankfully.
