Yeah, its not half. He's friend is paying 5500 for 12 kvm2, only for that room and ofc. the kitchen and bath etc. But it is very normal to pay 4000-6500 for one room 10-20 kvm2 in Copenhagen right now. A 2 bedroom usually cost around 5000-10000 danish crowns. Copenhagen is HELLA expensive. I live in a city in Nordjylland, I pay 4100 kr. for 60 kvm2 and all my friends are going mental because it's so inexpensive conserdering Copenhagen and Århus, and I live in on of the 5 biggest cities in Denmark :)
- But the salary of 37.000 kr is 100 % before taxes, which in this case would be around 50-55 % taxrate of 37.000 kr.
