Living in Odense

Odense in Denmark has the nickname 'Odin's Shrine' after its namesake, and one of the Gods in Norse mythology - Odin. One of the oldest Danish cities (it had its 1000 year anniversary in 1988), Odense has a population of just over 170,000 people. Expats living in Odense will be able to discover various interesting pieces of architecture. The so-called Odin’s Tower, for example, which was built in 1935, used to be a prime example of the city’s fascinating history and architecture. It was, however, destroyed in World War II and never rebuilt. Once the second tallest tower in Europe, after Paris's Eiffel Tower, expats living in Odense can nowadays only take a look at its miniature model in Odinsparken. If you want to learn more about Odense's intriguing history, and you're thinking of living in Odense, you should check out what tips and advice the InterNations online community for expatriates has to offer, before jumping in with both feet and starting your own exciting story.

Moving to Odense

Odense used to be the second largest city in Denmark, but it was recently exceeded in terms of population by Aarhus. On their first visit, many people go to the Cathedral of St. Canute, named after the Danish king Canute the Saint, and fall in love with Danish architecture and the simple way of life. "Brandts Klædefabrik", the art and cultural center of Odense, has a hand in keeping people around, showing off Odense's many exciting cultural diversities. If you are moving to Odense, but need some help sorting out storage solutions back home, or you have no idea about the regulations on bringing family and pets abroad with you, then you can find answers by becoming a member of the InterNations expat community. Our online community of more than one million members represents more than 190 nationalities from around the world, so there is bound to be somebody you can get in touch with who is able to answer any questions on life as an expat in Odense you might have.

Working in Odense

Several of Denmark's largest corporations are located near or in Odense, and the largest sales auction of fruit, vegetables and flowers in the whole of Denmark is located in the center of the city. TV 2, one of the biggest and most profitable, television networks in Denmark is located in Odense, too, providing plenty of media jobs for any budding journalist or broadcaster. The shopping mall called Rosengårdcentret, isn't far from Odense's center, and has more than 150 stores spread across 100 thousand square meters of commercial space. If you want or are about to start working in Odense, but you're worried about fitting in, or understanding foreign business etiquette, then you can let the InterNations website put your mind to rest. The InterNations site has its own collection of expatriation relevant articles called Expat Magazine that has information on such topics as working as an expatriate, opening up a bank account overseas, and sorting out the correct paperwork so you can get started right away.
