Denmark's central bank raised its main lending rate by a quarter-point on Thursday to 3.5 percent.
The increase, which was expected, followed the European Central Bank's decision earlier in the day to raise its key interest rate by a quarter of a percentage point to 3.25 percent. That move was aimed at keeping inflation at bay as the bank sees growth ahead in the bloc's 12 euro-using countries.
European Union member Denmark is not part of the 12-country European Monetary Union, but mirrors the moves of the ECB.
The lending rate indicates the interest rate on banks' short-term transactions.
