Summary: Expats and digital nomads move to Denmark for its high quality of life, excellent healthcare system, and strong economy. Additionally, Denmark is known for its progressive social policies, making it an attractive destination for those looking for a safe and secure place to live. People looking for a place to live in Denmark can search online for rental properties, or contact a real estate agent for assistance. The most popular cities for expats and digital nomads in Denmark are Copenhagen, Aarhus, and Odense. These cities offer a variety of amenities, including excellent public transportation, a vibrant cultural scene, and plenty of job opportunities.

What do I need to know before moving to Denmark?

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Denmark, they said:

"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," commented one expat who made the move to Copenhagen.

"Denmark is a great place to live, but there are a few things expats should be aware of before moving. It is important to research the cost of living in Denmark, as it is one of the most expensive countries in Europe. Expats should also be aware of the language barrier, as Danish is the official language of the country. It is also important to research the job market in Denmark, as the unemployment rate is relatively low. Additionally, expats should be aware of the weather in Denmark, as it can be quite cold and wet during the winter months. Finally, expats should be aware of the cultural norms in Denmark, as there are certain expectations of behavior and etiquette that should be followed," remarked one expat in Denmark.
