    The currency in Denmark is called Danish Crowns (DKK).
    1 Danish Crown equals 100 “Ører” (the Danish cent/penny).
    1 Danish Crown is approx. EUR 0,13.

    If you wish to pay in a different currency than DKK, you can use a currency converter online or your bank can help you with the calculation. If there is a small difference in the payment, up or down, it will be registered on your file, and you will be allocated anyhow.
