The Little Things

There are a lot of little things that no one thinks to tell you before you get here, that might confuse you or make you double-take. Things like, the handicap parking symbol is backwards.

  • Your movie ticket has a row and seat number on it. You can't just sit anywhere like back in the US. Buy and pick your seats online ahead of time at any Nordisk Film Bio.

Numbers and Money

  • means minus instead of divide. It is also used frequently on signs indicating what percent off some item on sale is.
  • In numbers, they use commas where we use dots, and dots where we use commas, e.g. 1.000 is one thousand and 1,75 is one and three-quarters. A dash is often used instead of 00 at the end of a price, e.g. 7,- is seven kroner.
  • The smallest coin is 50 øre. If you're paying in cash, and it costs 11,75 you will pay 12. Similarly, if it costs 11.25 you will pay 11.
