Cost of living

While the cost of living may be high in Denmark, so is the quality of life.

Cost of living
The cost of living in Denmark is generally quite high and a family household normally consists of two incomes. Your cost of living will, of course, vary depending on your lifestyle and the size of your household.

Odense is generally less expensive to live in than either Copenhagen or Aarhus, as rent is typically lower.
