Favorite thing Denmark is a EU COUNTRY, BUT IT USES THE DANISH KRONER, not the euro.

When you arrive at the Airport it is easy to get Kroners from the ATM machines and money exchange.

Foreign exchange is available from the Danske Bank located in the Transit Area of Terminal 2 and before security check points.
Nordea located in Transit Area of Terminal 2 and Terminal 3 before security check points.

Danske Bank ATM is located before security check point in Terminal 2.
Nordea's ATM is located in Transit Area of Terminal 2 and before security check point in Terminal 3.

Banks are open from 10 - 4pm - Monday to Friday.
On Thursday banks are open to 6pm
At Copenhagen’s Central Station banking hours are from 7:00 - 9pm.... 7 days/week.
ATM machines and service is provided outside every bank in Copenhagen and accepts all international credit cards.

Danish Kroner - not Euro

Favorite thing Denmark is a member of the European Union, however, this does not automatically mean that its currency is the Euro.

In fact, the European Union and the Euro Zone have differenct memberships. Countries within the European Union that are NOT members of the Euro Zone include :
United Kingdom

Some shops, restaurants, museums, hotels and other establishments will accept the Euro but give you change in Kroner. Unfortunately, this is the most costly way to operate in Copenhagen as the exchange rate offered for Euro will be lower than the norm if changed anywhere other than Foreign Exchange Bureaux or banks.

Danish Money

Favorite thing Despite Denmark being part of the European Union, the Danish people chose not to convert to the Euro in 2000 with the rest of Europe. Danish Money is called the Krone (plural is Kroner). The exchange rate between the Krone and the Euro is now fixed to ensure a more stable currency in relation to the rest of the EU. Denmark rejected adoption of the Euro in 2000, and the government dropped another proposed referendum in 2004. The Danish government would still like to adopt the Euro sometime in the near future.

Kroner are easy to find in the major cities. ATMs are common and major credit cards are widely accepted.

best place to change your money.

Favorite thing when changing money in copenhagen your best bet is using a company called forex.
they are located several places around town, including the main train station, and have good rates and charge small exchange fees.
some other exchange places charge enormous fees and you should check carefully before using any other than forex.

Currency Issues

Favorite thing Denmark uses Dänish Kroner as their curreny and Euros are not their curreny so u need to come here and exchange into Dänish Kroners. There are different exchange rates which are offered at different places. Better go to the Tourist Information office and ask for their guidence about this issue.

Favorite thing Denmark is not in the EURO-zone, so you have to convert to the local Danish kroner! But if they did, apparently it would look like this......
