Traveling to Europe? Some cities offer great value. Others, not so much.

Expensive: Copenhagen

6 of 21

A holiday in the Danish capital is affordable—if you’re willing to postpone your retirement for a year or two to pay for it. Even though hotel rates are down, they’re still on the high side. But if you use public transit and search out restaurant deals, it might be doable on a moderate budget.

  • Average 2010 hotel rate: $183 (down 9 percent)
  • Price of beer (pint): $5.22–$8.70
  • Two-mile taxi ride: $10.86
  • State Department 2011 per diem: $440 (down 5 percent)
