How is the dollar faring?

Planning a trip and would like to know what to expect. Live in NYC so don't expect to be shocked but what do things cost like meals, transportation, museums, etc.

Thanks. So what does DKK 5.50 buy? A cup of coffee? How many to buy a beer? A sandwich?

Thanks.

The wonderful National Museum is free and the major sites are easily walkable so you do not need to use the bus for the most part. The food, even by NYC standards, is very expensive. I filled up on the wonderful breakfasts at our hotel, did granola bars for snacks instead of lunch, and very carefully perused the menus at dinner to stay within budget.

Hi,

I agree that an overnight place with breakfast included is recommendable.

Spreadening out the sketched price range, some examples of less expensive food places can be seen here:
