Summary: Expatriates are drawn to Copenhagen, Denmark for its high quality of life, vibrant culture, and excellent job opportunities. The city is known for its strong economy, low unemployment rate, and high standard of living. Additionally, Copenhagen is a safe and welcoming city with a diverse population and a wide range of activities and attractions. With its beautiful architecture, stunning scenery, and rich history, Copenhagen is an ideal destination for expats looking to experience a unique and exciting lifestyle.

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:

"Copenhagen is a vibrant and cosmopolitan city with a high quality of life. Expats should be aware that the cost of living in Copenhagen is high, so it is important to budget accordingly. It is also important to note that the Danish language is widely spoken in Copenhagen, so it is beneficial to learn some basic phrases before moving. Additionally, Copenhagen is a very bike-friendly city, so it is recommended to bring a bike or purchase one upon arrival. Finally, expats should be aware that the weather in Copenhagen can be unpredictable, so it is important to be prepared for all seasons," said one 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 one expat who made the move to Copenhagen.
