Danish Pride and Prejudice

The (bad) drinking habit I talked about in the previous article about my exchange in Copenhagen brings me to the most heard prejudice about Denmark. “Beer is so expensive there!” A lot of people think that the beer in the supermarkets, terraces, clubs and pubs is way more expensive than in the Netherlands. In fact, the beer at Nyhavn – I often call it the Champs-Élysées from Copenhagen – is indeed really expensive. It is not uncommon to pay 50 Danish kroner (€ 6,70) for a small glass of beer. But besides being in the chic clubs you will be able to buy your beers for prices equal to the Dutch prices.

“What is a typical Danish thing?”

“What is a typical Danish thing?” That was the most frequently asked question that I had to answer to all my Dutch friends and family after the first week I got here. I arrived here on August the 16th, and to be honest, I still do not have a one-word answer to that question.
