Working and living in Denmark – Valuable Information from A to Z

Moving to and living in Denmark requires a wealth of up-to-date, trustworthy information on various aspects of Danish expat life. Living abroad in Denmark raises a lot of questions such as: ʺHow do I find the best relocation services for moving to Denmark?ʺ, ʺCan I easily borrow "Danish 101" textbooks from local libraries?ʺ, ʺWhich international school in Copenhagen should our kids attend?ʺ or, ʺHow do I obtain a work permit for my spouse at the Danish municipality in Aarhus?ʺ

Collecting all that information on working and living in Denmark is quite laborious and time-consuming. Our InterNations Expat Guide for Denmark aims to help you and provides you with reliable info on those topics that matter to expats living in Denmark. The Guide includes information on many different areas ranging from culture and sights, to housing & household or local organisations and companies, up to culture & sights. Typical questions related to expat life abroad, such as ʺHow important is punctuality in Danish etiquette?ʺ, will no longer remain unanswered.

Interested in expat life around the world, though? We have additional information on dozens of countries and cities, from living in Vietnam to living in Cyprus!
