Costs during an internship in Denmark

Denmark is not an inexpensive country to live in. However, the costs of accommodation, food, transport and leisure are comparable to other Western European nations. Danish salaries are also correspondingly high, and many services such as medical treatment and schools are paid for via taxes and the Danish welfare system, so that no user fees are charged.
