Where You're Docked

Money and Tipping

Denmark's currency is the Danish Krone (DKK). Tourist-friendly shops may take Euros. Credit cards are accepted at a lot of places but most self-serve terminals require chip and pin cards. Ask before trying to use a magnetic swipe card. There may also be a 3% surcharge for using foreign credit cards. In Europe, it is common (but not expected) to round up the bill leaving a small tip (5-10%) when dining at restaurants. Taxi drivers do not expect to be tipped though passengers typically round up to the nearest 10 DKK.

Local Transportation

Aarhus is relatively compact and easy to get around by foot.
