#Peter on Oct 14, 2018 :
Just for information so you guys have an idea - I am a MA student, I live close to the city centre in a more expensive part. I don't really restrict myself when it comes to expenses, but I don't go eating out in expensive restaurants very often (although often I use canteens, fast-foods and cheaper restaurants) and I use public transport and bike. I seldom use a lot of money on new mobile or clothes, yet I spend a lot on travels and culture and nightlife.
My monthly budget is around 10000 danish crowns. Of that amount, 4 - 5 thousand is for the rent in a shared double room flat.
Before I lived in a smaller town far away from Copenhangen, I had a car, a room in a shared flat and I spent about 7500 kr. per month with similar way of life. I had a netto salary of about 15000 kr., so I was able to save a lot.
#Adhikary on Sep 27, 2018 :
can someone please suggest what will be the living cost for a couple staying near to Esplanadan area? i will need to rent my own apartment (1 bhk). My estimation suggests it to be around 25K mark. Really appreciate your help here.
#Maaz on Aug 18, 2018 :
Can i work in copenhagen with visit viza is it possible..
#Vera on Jul 20, 2018 :
Can some one advice me, what would be my position if If I have 26K before tax salary and to live with8 year old child in Copenhagen? Is it really a tight situation?
#Jonas on Jul 07, 2018 :
So this is unfortunately too late for for you, Rajiv, but I would recommend for others that 20000k after tax, will be a little challenging to live from as a couple or family. I think it is a reasonable salary, but the fact is that the cost of living in Copenhagen is so high, that it is difficult for a couple to live off of just one income, period. Rent alone can often cost over 10-12k, a reasonable distance from city center, food can be 8k+, and so on.
#Rajiv on Jun 24, 2018 :
URGENT: Hi, I have been offered a job in Copenhagen. My employer has offered me 20,000 DKK (net after tax). Please note, this 20,000 DKK net doesn't include housing as housing will separately fully paid the company. I have to pay for the utility bills (electricity, water, heating, etc) by myself. I will be moving with my wife and as of now, she doesn't have a job in Copenhagen. Can you kindly advice me the following:
1) Will 20,000 DKK (net after tax) will be enough for two of us to have a comfortable life in Copenhagen?
2) What will be the utility bill that I can expect per month?
I am really looking forward to your advice as I have to give a decision (take the job/ reject) in next 2 days.

Looking forward to hear from you. THanks

#Anonymous on Dec 24, 2017 :
Doc India. It's possible. If you don't plan on going out or buying fancy clothing. But it will still be tight. To tight for my taste. A lot of immigrants on welfare live for less. Your wife should work. In order to thrive and appreciate the country. And try and learn as much danish as possible(not because it's necessary, but people will appreciate the effort)
#Sandy on Dec 23, 2017 :
@Doc_India: 26000 DKK before tax leaves you with about 16000DKK after tax. This is enough for one person but for a family of 4 it wont be easy. Yes, suburbs are cheaper when it comes to rentals but apartments for a reasonable price are very difficult to find, for a bigger apartment to accomodate a family of 4 you will realistically speaking still have to pay at least 10K. That leaves you with about 6K for the rest. Its not impossible to survive with this amount, but you will be leaving on a very tight budget.
#Shiro Tagachi on Nov 25, 2017 :
My experience of living in Copenhagen, DK is that this city is probably the most expensive to live in. We are a married couple with one child and our salary is 38000-40000 dkk pr month after tax, but still it is not enough! We love the city; its charm & beauty thru the whole year.
#Doc_India on Nov 01, 2017 :
@Sandy: Dear Sandy, you requesting your guidance on my query --2600 DKK - Family of 4--Copenhagen. Thanks in advance
#Doc_India on Nov 01, 2017 :
Can I support frugally, my family - wife who is PhD in Life Science and try some small job, 2 kids - 10 and 5 year old and plan to admit them in Public School during my PhD in Copenhagen? My stipend will be 26000 DKK before tax and ~ 29000 DKK before tax if pensions are added in salary. Plan to buy cycles, cook at home vegetarian meals and rent 2 room apartment in some suburb?

Yes, I can do it alone, but will miss all of them and have heard that schools for children are great in Denmark!
#Morten Damborg on Sep 22, 2017 :
@Luis Sandy is right about EUR as the better option. In many stores in central Copenhagen you will also be able to pay directly with EUR and get change in DKK. However - if you do it - make sure you get at least 7,35 DKK per EUR.
#Morten Damborg on Sep 22, 2017 :
Avoid a company called The Change Group. They offer awfull rates.
#Sandy on Sep 22, 2017 :
@Luis: In Denmark and Sweden its best to pay using a credit card or Mobile pay as paying with cash is less and less common. However if you are not comfortable with that, its best to bring Euros which can than be exchanged into Danish Kroner(DKK), the reason for this being that the exchange ratio between euros and DKK fluctuates much less than the exchange ratio of the dollar to DKK.
#Morten Damborg on Sep 22, 2017 :
@Luis Trujillo
EUR or USD are both possible to exchange easily. Beware of bad rates and High commisions. In Nørrebro you find the cheapest bureau de change agenturs. But the best deal for you will probably be to get cash from an ATM, if you have a debit Care.
#Luis Trujillo on Sep 18, 2017 :
@Anonymous thanks for the information. I have another question, is better bring with me euros or dollars? Which has a better exchange rate? Thanks
#Anonymous on Sep 12, 2017 :
@Luis By trips in Denmark I mean voyages to different turistic sites near Copenhagen and maybe south of Sweden (Skåne) which is also quite nice. These are trips usually made by people that spend some time in Copenhagen, the so-called turistic "must see" places like the Hamlet castle, the royal places north of Copenhagen, island of Møn, etc. There is a lot to see during the summer, but hurry up because the weather is getting colder and when November comes, you would rather want to spend time inside.
#Luis Trujillo on Sep 09, 2017 :
@Sandy, whats means exactly trips in Denmark? Visit other cities diferent to Copenhague? Or other countries?
#Sandy on Aug 30, 2017 :
@Claire, ørestad is not particularly cheap but most buildings are new and as a consequence apartments are of a good quality. Nordvestkvarteret and suburbs southwest of Copenhagen are cheaper but not the nicest place to live.
#Claire on Aug 17, 2017 :
Hello there, I am planning a move to Copenhagen and I am hoping someone can tell me the cheapest district for rent? Is ørestad known for cheaper rental prices?
Many thanks,
#Sandy on Aug 15, 2017 :
@Rakesh Kumar and Swapnil Kore: You need to think well before making the step of moving to Copenhagen. Keep in mind that when renting an apartment you need to pay in the beginning 4 months of rent(first months + 3 months deposit). As a student you can get student accommodation starting from 2.500-3000 kr. but this is very difficult to find, probably as difficult as finding affordable accommodation in Mumbai. If you want to rent a 1 bedroom apartment you will need to pay around 40.000 kr in the beginning(5200 euros). All the other commodity prices listed by Numbeo are quite realistic, I would actually choose the lower value of the "range" as the most appropriate figure.
Århus is slightly cheaper but accommodation is more difficult to find than in Copenhagen.
#Sandy on Aug 15, 2017 :
@ Luis Trujillo: Luis, if your room and transportation is paid for, than the prices listed as the lower value of "Range" in Numbeo are a good indication what you should expect. Of course eating out and occasional trips in Denmark are quite expensive but I would say that 600 euros as an average per month should be enough as pocket money.
#Luis Trujillo on Aug 07, 2017 :

I'm flying to Copenhague on September, I won a scholarship, so I don't have worry about a room, food and transportation. But I want to know how much money will be enought for the other things.

#Swapnil kore on Jul 16, 2017 :

#rakesh kumar on Jun 28, 2017 :

I am Rakesh Kumar I am graduation degree in Design From India and i want to pursue my Mater's degree from from Denmark. Kindly Suggest me good college and living cost and what is the procedure for take admission.
I am very grateful if you will help me.

#Sandy on Jun 25, 2017 :
The Average Salary listed by Numbeo is overestimated especially in the region of capital cities where often wealth is concentrated. Most people do not earn the average monthly salary mentioned. Yes, some do earn much more than the average which compensate for the vast majority which earn less but this is not a realistic measure to look at the whole situation. Most people that are visiting Numbeo do not earn top salaries hence the average monthly salary listed is misleading. As a conservative figure (in Copenhagen for instance) you can substract 15-20% from the figure presented to get a more realistic picture of peoples income. This seems to be the case for others capital cities as well(London, New York, Madrid, Lisbon).
#Sandy on Jun 23, 2017 :
The prices shown in the list called "Markets" are exaggerated. For most groceries(although not all of them) the lower value displayed in the "Range" column is the most realistic. It all depends where you buy from. Many products in discount supermarkets are as good as the ones sold in the more expensive supermarkets.
#Sandy on Jun 23, 2017 :
@Krishna As a student they should provide you with some student accommodation costing around 3000 kr. Add to that around 2000 kr for food and another 600 kr for transportation if you are not staying next to the university which is often the case. So 9000 kr should be enough to survive and have a bit of fun. A lot of danish students are getting by with less.
@Sophie Try to find snowglobes at TIGER it costs max 50 kr.
@Viv For a Helpdesk, IT job you should expect something in the region of 20.000-24.000 DKK(13.000-15.000 after taxes). As a waitress the official salary will be a bit lower yet including tips you can get to earn substantially more than IT_Helpdesk(believe me, I tried both).
I hope this helps.
#Sophie on Jun 13, 2017 :
Heya peeps I wanna know how much a SNOWGLOBE costs coz I'm at Skool doin math and we're booking HOILDAYZZ!!!!! Srsly Pepl tall meh :P
#Viv on Apr 03, 2017 :
Hi guys, I will be travelling with the working holiday visa to Denmark soon. I´m wondering about the salary of an IT person (Help Desk, IT desk, EUC support), a waiter/waitress, bartender salary. Can somebody let me know how much it is after tax and can I live with that salary?

I appreciate any estimated about the salary rank for those jobs!!

Thank you!

Viv :)
#Krishna on Mar 17, 2017 :
Hello everyone! Im from India.I got masters at University of Copenhagen. I will be paid a stipend around 9000 DKK approx. Will that be sufficient for an international student? Also how can I find cheap housing as an international student? I searched online. Couldn't find any! My campus is in norre alle 2200 Copenhagen! Any advice please?!
#Silvach on Mar 10, 2017 :
Charis, 1500 euro is only 11000 dkk.

Room is about 5000-6000. Monthly utilities are around 1000, traffic ticket varies from 375 to 1300 depends on the zones. It will be very hard for you to spend some money for something other than bills and grocery.
#Charis on Feb 03, 2017 :
Hello everyone!

I'm considering a master in Copenhagen and I'm currently in a research of estimating the average cost of living (renting a place to stay - even uni dorm could work -, a used bicycle to buy, internet access etc.). How much do you think would be enough? Let's say 1500euros/ month are sufficient ? Thank you ! :)
#Anonymous on Jan 14, 2017 :
Thank you for this informations, pls let me know about the cost of See a doctor For example, wages pediatrician.
#Anonymous on Dec 30, 2016 :
Re Arseni
thank you for pay attention,
and another question, is it easy to find ensuite rooms around the university

could you please give advice about the avaliable and trustworty web site to find it,


#Arseni on Dec 29, 2016 :
Mişi, you'll be able to find a room for 4000-5000 DKK a month, incl. all utilities.
The monthly pass will cost you about 500 DKK, but if you'll be living close to the university, you may consider biking, that will save you money in the long run.
Gym membership is 250 DKK. Mobile subscription plan is 100-150 DKK.
Basic food from supermarkets will cost you 1000-2000 DKK a month.

So, 6000 DKK seems to be a living minimum in Copenhagen, unless you can find a cheaper place to live (friends, relatives, etc.).
#mişi on Dec 28, 2016 :

##Re John on Oct 27, 2016 :
Hi, I hear 6 months rent is normal as sort of security deposit when renting apartment. Is that usually returned by landlords, or do they try and make phony deductions to keep the money.
Someone below said it's not protected by law?
#Re Ankur on Oct 11, 2016 :
Ankur: With that salary you should be eligible for expat tax (approx 32%), so if you will have 45k/month net after tax, you can find a nice central 2 bedroom apt in the centre for 15k, then you have 30k for life. So you can e.g. eat out every day in a steakhouse, having 3 course meal... maybe in Noma once or twice a month... and you would still have some money left for having some cocktails on Friday night... depends if you can survive with this lifestyle or you are used to something fancier...
#Ankur on Sep 30, 2016 :
Hello There,
just receive an offer from a company in copenhagen and they are offering me DKK850000 /yr.
can i survive there and save something or not in this package ???
please suggest
#Devesh on Jul 23, 2016 :
@John : Is the tax 40% now or is it 51% at the most ? Also, what is the tax percent for people who are appointed to work in Denmark with a work permit ?

@ All : My gross per month salary offered is 33334 DKK on paper. How much would be left in hand for me as savings considering I am staying as a bachelor and rent an apartment on sharing. No smoking habits, I can cook food at home. Occasional eat-out, occasional beer sipping.
#John on Apr 21, 2016 :
The apartment approx avg 12000 dkk, public transport approx 4-500 dkk.(3 zoner approx)
Also please note that in Denmark you are forced to pay 2500 dkk per year as media license from DR that's danish broadcasting, even though you dont use it.
The employers might tell you lower deduction in taxes you might get a bit surprised when you receive your salary, so calculate first.
if salary is x , first deduct 5% from x, then deduct 8% from x-5% , then deduct kommune tax around 28-29% from x-5%-8%, then deduct health tax 6% from left over in addition there is top and bottom bracket tax. If you want a lumpsum figure on ana avg deduct 40% from your salary as tax in general.

#Sam on Mar 23, 2016 :
Thanks David and Fahad. if i may get rental appt of 6000-7000 DKK then is really good news. Anyways, one laymann question, i am getting 2 years work permit so my wife will able to work on dependent permit?
#david on Mar 19, 2016 :
I'm just looking at this page to see what anti-socialist buffoons are going on about, using Denmark as the flagship of why socialism doesn't work. All in all it seems pretty ok, actually quite good when you compare these costs to median salaries. I see that the listings on Craigslist for rentals seem way cheaper than what is reported here and in the comments, like 6000DKK for 2 bedrooms in the middle of the city, and 3500DKK for a very nice FULLY FURNISHED one bedroom. I wonder if it was talking about per day or per month lol
#Marc on Mar 16, 2016 :

You would have about DKK 40.000 after taxes if you're wife is not working.

It will be enough to support your family, however, you'll properly have to prioritize where to spend your money. You can easily spend the first 15.000 on the apartment.
Look at it this way, the average wage after taxes is about 18.000DKK per person. You and your wife will have about 40 combined. I'm not saying it's not a lot of money, but it all depends. My guess is YES.
#sam on Feb 28, 2016 :
Thanks #anon. As you mentioned whole life style, so my concern is, how much DKK is monthly expediture to ful fil as per you mentioned here?
#anon on Feb 25, 2016 :
I live in north Copenhagen, in a very good area. I shop at Lidl,Kwickly, Super Brugsen, and Netto. The prices quoted above are on average too high. Meat is not expensive here. Pork is cheap and of excellent quality. So is chicken. MY daughters from England and USa come frequently and find many goods cheaper.Alcohol and spirits are cheaper here than those countries and we can buy alcohol on offer in local supermarkets cheaper than at the Duty-free airport shop. Clothes are comparable in price but sales are exceptionally good and 70% reductions are quite normal. Transport on buses by using the multi-tickets is cheap and very reliable. Taxes are high here but it is a healthy place to live. Dry air and usually a warmer summer than England. Go for it!!There is so much peace and quiet here and when we go back to England it feels like a never-ending motorway.
#Sam on Feb 10, 2016 :
Hi, I got offer of 24000 dkk in copenhagen. I want to shift there with family (wife and 2 kids 6yrs, 1 yr). Kindly let me know how much i can save after all expenditure in normal condition?
#Denis on Jan 08, 2016 :
Hey guys did you know why Danish people are not fat ? Because the meat is so expensive that they are forced to eat cheese and vegetables
#David on Nov 24, 2015 :
Please note that in Copenhagen it requires to take a loan even for rental apartment now.They ask for 6 months of rent amount upfront , for example avg rent is around 10000dkk for 50 sqm that means you need at least 60000 dkk in cash upfront even for getting a rental apartment. And this amount is at risk as there is not regulation on rental market by any authorities PRACTICALLY
#John on Nov 10, 2015 :
Reality is the salaries are low in Copenhagen considering the high rental prices. Before moving , should calculate that, as the rental market is not in control under any regulations
#Deepak on Nov 10, 2015 :
The housing prices are not realistic....
apartment 40-50 sqm....will cost 10000 dkk + in city center , there is an acute shortage you will never get it though.
city outskirts dont go that cheap it will be like 8500 or 9000dkk for same kind , but you have to add transportation costs in addition.
#Gerald on Sep 10, 2015 :

But once you arrive in Copenhagen ask some locals where the cheaper options are. There can be huge price differences on everything like groceries, bicycle repairs, dentist works and also even rent.
Copenhagen has a reputation of being very expensive, and it truly can be. But if you know were to go, you can save tremendous amounts of money. For instance in the city center, 7-Eleven stores easily charge 15 kroner for a bottle of water whereas a Netto, Fakta or Rema1000 store one block away will let you go for 3-4 kroner.

I would suggest the following guidelines, if you live in a Cph:

After having paid everything regular like rent, insurance children's kindergarten, car, mortgage/debts, telephone, utilities, dentist etc, I recommend you have the following amounts left for food, clothing, savings for holiday trips and savings for unexpected costs if things need repair or something

A single person: at least 4-5000 DKK

A couple: at least 8-10000 DKK

Then add maybe 2000-3000 DKK a month for every child. Then you can live a decent life economically. Some get by on less.

My wife and I make about 39000 kroner (app. 6000 USD) after tax a month. We both earn quite average salaries. Maybe a little under average. After having plaid everything regular, we have about 15000 left for food, clothing, savings and unexpected costs. We have a nice apartment about 8 miles from downtown, which we own, no car and two kids. We get around by bicycle and public trains and busses.
That is quite comfortable.

What is the average living expense in total(rent, food, transport, utilities, prepaid tarrif and internet )for a single guy in Copenhagen?
##Cphres on Aug 02, 2015 :
To Key: It varies depending on your needs, but you can easily survive (actually have a good life) with 4-5000 a month on living expenses after rent is paid.
#Key on Aug 01, 2015 :
Hi guys living in Copenhagen, Could anyone else write how much does the couple need for a month in Copenhagen besides rent, since this is the most expensive part. I saw one post below that person earns 21 000 kr and pays 7100 for a flat, so is it really 14 000 kr that a couple needs per month after tax to survive the month???? I would be grateful for any feedback.

Could anyone please tell me what is the average monthly cost for food in Copenhagen.

#Jacob on Nov 07, 2014 :
Do your shopping (food, beer, wine, cigarettes etc.) in the supermarket of Aldi, Lidl or Netto. Thats half the prices that listed here. Get a used bicycle like the locals for about 100$ and get around for free.
