As of this post the Great British Pound is worth 8.67 Danish Kroner. This makes calculations about small prices ‘similar to ten times British prices’ For example, a litre of low fat milk is 4.95 DKK (57p in GBP).

Ore, pronounced in English phonetically ‘ouahr’ is the  100th of a Kroner (which makes 50 Ore similar to the 5 pence piece).

Overall in Denmark everything is more expensive compared to Britain and taxes are high. There is a plus side though, the taxes spread monetary equality over the population and there are less ‘rich’ and ‘poor’ people.
