Danish capital trails only Zurich and New York in latest Hoppa index

It won’t be news to most seasoned travellers, or a surprise to those who call Copenhagen their home, but the Danish capital has once again found itself perched near the top of a ‘most expensive’ list.

This time Copenhagen has been ranked the third most expensive tourism destination – based on average hotel, food drink, taxi and entertainment costs per person per night – by airport transfer firm Hoppa.

Trailing only Zurich and New York, the average cost of a night in Copenhagen was rated as being about 1,320 kroner. Oslo and Stockholm followed to make up the top five.
