Summary: Moving to Copenhagen, Denmark: Expats, retirees and digital nomads talk about everything you need to know before moving to Copenhagen.

What do I need to know before moving to Copenhagen?

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

"Plan first where you need to be -- work and schools -- and chose someplace that is very close to that area. 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. You will have major problems when moving out. I've heard many nightmare stories and ours was bad but not as bad as others," said another expat in Copenhagen.

"Check out this web-site about moving to Denmark ... especially if you are a member of a "visible minority" (I hate the terminology but you know what I mean). http://somethingmanky.blogspot.com/," remarked another expat who made the move to Copenhagen.

How do I find a place to live in Copenhagen?
