Copenhagen Airport, expensive or what?

My colleague and I have just returned from Vilnius in Lithuania where we have been doing some work at Vilnius University. Our route home was via Copenhagen airport with a five and a half hour stop over for our connection to Manchester.

So, as one normally does with such a long wait we decided to find a bar and have a beer to while away the time. My friend ordered a glass of Kronenburg and I asked for Tuborg and we were quickly presented with two glasses.

Are these the two most expensive beers in Europe?

My friend offered to pay and the young lady serving us rang the amount into the till machine and up popped the amount of £15.00………..our jaws dropped as we looked at each other and said “well we knew that is was expensive in Copenhagen but we didn’t realise we were personally subsidising the Danish tax system.”

Needless to say we drank the beers very slowly…………………..

    Reblogged this on Mike the Psych's Blog and commented:
    I hadn’t enough Danish currency and they won”t take foreign coins, only notes , then give you Danish currency in return. So I thought £20 might cover 2 beers and 2 coffees. The change you can see on the counter wouldn’t even buy a coffee at that bar!

  2. Hey, those Danes have to pay for their social services somehow. And it hurts a lot less when it comes out of a tourist’s pocket. But most US cities have figured out how much easier it is to tax tourists as well. They don’t vote. I am reminded of no taxation without representation. Fat chance that is going to happen. 🙂 –Curt

    Perhaps all us disgruntled travellers should form a “support group?”……….we could be kmnown as the Support Group for Disgruntled Airline Travellers or SGDATs for short
