Banking in Denmark

Information on banking services and the major banks in Denmark...

Denmark has general retail and commercial banks, and registered foreign banks all of which offer varying services and tariffs. The following points should be considered before choosing a bank:

  • Location: There is usually a choice of banks even in small communities. It is a good idea to go to more than one bank before making a choice
  • English-speaking staff: Most banks have English-speaking staff; some branches have staff especially to help foreigners
  • Telephone/Internet banking: All banks in Denmark provide these services, while some also provide them in English. There are a few that offer Internet-only banking services

The Danish website Mybanker.dk provides information about banking fees and conditions.
