InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Copenhagen

Hello to all Americans in Copenhagen! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Copenhagen? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Copenhagen which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Copenhagen offers a very high quality of life. The Danish capital is a historical yet modern city known for its colorful houses, culinary scene, simplistic design, and much more! With the comprehensive public transportation network with buses, driverless metro lines, suburban trains (S-Bahn), and regional trains, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in one of the outer districts, such as Valby, which are just half an hour or so away from Copenhagen’s center.

Although Copenhagen has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Copenhagen, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
