An Expat Talks about Moving to Copenhagen, Denmark

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Copenhagen

Name three things that you wish you had brought and three you wish you had left at home.

Should have left behind my food Processor (We found out that with the electrical conversion from the U.S., some appliances like food processors need more than just a standard converter. We would need to get a converter that is about $100 to use this appliance)

Should have brought Cold/flu medicines, cough drops and cough syrup -- these are not available except by prescription in Denmark. (Editor's Note: Always make sure you research the legal implications of bringing ANY medications into a foreign country)

No matter how much people told us that we didn't need to know Danish, we did. Everyone speaks English, but without knowing the native language, we have felt on the outside of many social occasions.

Moving to Copenhagen

Expect to live in an apartment and not a home unless you have a very large budget for housing expenses. CIS and Rygaards are the only international schools I would recommend in any way. When setting a budget, double or triple it. And, lastly, rent through a rent manager and NOT directly with a home owner.

Living in Copenhagen

An expat living in Copenhagen offers an incredible glimpse of what it's to live there. Although Denmark is very homogeneous, Danish people are open to other cultures. The high cost of living and tight job market can make staying in Copenhagen long-term difficult for many expats.

Culture Shock in Copenhagen

An expat in Denmark talks about what it's like to move to Copenhagen. Meeting people and making friends isn't easy in Denmark, because Danish people are reserved and take time to get to know. He enjoys the fact that most Danish people are into fitness and healthy eating.

I have been offered a job in Denmark but have to fund the move myself for which I have been quoted about DKK 170,000 which includes shipping the contents of my home, buying new electrical appliances, rental deposit etc and wonder if this is normal for large global companies these days to refuse to assist as I have received assistance in the past which made the move possible, My second question is that I have been trying to find out how much tax I will pay as I have read it can be as high as 52% which makes the salary less attractive but I have contacted the company about this issue and they have stated they cannot help me which isn't helpful as it would seem that I will only know what figure I will have to support my family and I, in my first paycheck, which is making me nervous. Any advice would be appreciated.
