Denmark--just how expensive is it really? How does it compare to Germany?

Jump to last reply

We're a different type of traveller than many of you. We have so many places we want to see that often we just let the plane ticket price dictate where we will visit. We had thought about a cycling trip in Germany this summer and were ready to book roundtrip tickets to Frankfurt, but then I just found a deal where tickets are about $150 per person less flying into FRA and out of Copenhagen. So, airfare would be $300 less for the 2 of us.

The idea sounds intriguing because there are interesting bike trip possibilities we've found in the northern half of Germany, and we didn't have our hearts set on any particular bike trip. But, if we fly out of Copenhagen, we'd, of course, want to spend some time exploring Denmark, or at least spend 3 days or so in Copenhagen. And, we'd probably like to spend some time in the Danish countryside between Germany and Denmark.

We've been to Germany a number of times, so I'm familiar with the price structure there. I've heard that Denmark is really, really, really pricey. And, I have to be practical because the dollar is really, really, really low right now. We're budget to moderate travelers. Is Denmark a stupid idea? Should we just stick to Germany? We'd like to see Denmark some time, but we can always wait until another time too.

Thanks for any thoughts you have.
