What Is Expat Life in Copenhagen Like?

Copenhagen's beautiful cobbled streets and quaint old houses are famous around Europe for their aesthetic appeal. But it's not just about the looks, Copenhagen has swiftly become one of the cultural and economic centers of Scandinavia and is growing at a fast pace. Job opportunities in the Danish capital abound for expats with the right skills, especially in the business and new technology sectors. Copenhagen is also a cultural hub, with a huge range of museums, galleries, live music venues and bars or clubs to explore; although party animals might be unhappy to see how expensive alcohol is in Denmark, just as in other Scandinavian countries. Expat life in Copenhagen is not without its challenges, but it is a first world city with many international connections, so integration into Danish society should not be too hard. If you do stumble on your way, however, InterNations will always be at hand to pick you up and help you out, with our warm and welcoming community there to answer all your queries.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 390 cities across the globe. Get to know fellow internationals in your city, before you're moving, or when traveling somewhere and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Dubai or Singapore, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
