Living costs in Denmark

The standard costs of living in Denmark is high and the economy performs above the European average. Accommodation, food and transport are therefore relatively expensive in Denmark compared to other countries. However salaries and PhD stipends are correspondingly high, and services such as medical treatment are free of charge. 

Odense is as a main rule cheaper to live in than Copenhagen, but Odense is more expensive than Kolding, Esbjerg and Sønderborg. 
Below we have gathered some sample prices, but for a more detailed impression of living costs in Odense and Denmark, we suggest that you check out this page from NUMBEO where people all over the world share costs of living in different countries. You can also compare two cities with each other to see, where the living costs are the highest.

 You can also take a look at our partner's International Community Odense's website to find more information about the living costs specifically for Odense.
