Once the seat of Viking raiders and later a major north European power, Denmark has evolved into a modern, prosperous nation that is participating in the general political and economic integration of Europe. It joined NATO in 1949 and the EEC (now the EU) in 1973. However, the country has opted out of certain elements of the European Union's Maastricht Treaty, including the European Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) and issues concerning certain justice and home affairs.

The Cost of Travel in Denmark

Denmark is the least expensive country in Scandinavia, but that doesnt mean its cheap. There is a 25 percent tax added to almost every item or service you purchase in Denmark, from hotel rooms to souvenirs, but the country also offers many special discounts for seniors (explained in the next section). Some common travel costs, such as restaurant bills and taxi fares, already include service charges, so there is no need to tip.
