What is a typical expat home or apartment like in Denmark?
We asked expats what a typical home or apartment in Denmark is like. They answered...
"Expat homes and apartments in Denmark tend to be modern and well-equipped, with plenty of natural light and a comfortable, cozy atmosphere. Many expat homes feature open-plan living areas, with large windows and balconies that offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Expat apartments often come with modern amenities such as high-speed internet, cable TV, and air conditioning. Many expat homes and apartments also come with access to shared facilities such as swimming pools, gyms, and saunas," wrote a member who made the move to Denmark.
"We lived in a townhouse in the outskirts of Copenhagen in a small town -- Horsholm. We had to move to the suburbs to find a decent sized home for our family of four. It was small but ok. The car park was a long walk to our townhouse which was difficult when grocery shopping American style for a family of four. We had a much lower idea on our housing budget than what reality is there. In hindsight we should have rented closer into Copenhagen in an apartment. Most expats have a large rental cost covered by their employer that allows for more decent living style. We were on a contract and not as an employee so our budget came out of my husband's contract fee," explained one expat living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
