Moving to Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a great city, and Denmark has long ranked as one of the happiest nations to live in, so it is no wonder that many people choose to relocate or move to Copenhagen.

A great work/life balance, along with a good welfare and progressive policies are strong attractions. Add to that great coffee, plentiful beer and fantastic Scandinavian food and you will be sure to find yourself having a great time if you set your heart on moving to Copenhagen. 

If you are thinking of moving to Copenhagen from outside of Denmark our advice is to do your homework and make an informed decision especially about choosing where to live. We have come up with some top tips to help you on your way!

Tip one - Try it out first

If you are thinking about relocating to Copenhagen, make sure you come and visit before you commit. Plan a couple of long weekends and see what you think of the Copenhagen and Danish way of life. If you have the luxury of time, try to visit in more than one season as you will find Copenhagen very different in summer to winter. Find out as much as you can about the Danish culture and way of life whilst you are here, and check that it is compatible with your own goals and vision.

Our Living Suites serviced apartments are an ideal way to experience a short stay in Copenhagen. They are the perfect alternative to a hotel, providing you with a fully equipped kitchen and living area giving you a real feel of what it might be like to live in an apartment in Copenhagen.

Tip two - Sort out your paperwork

If you are relocating to Copenhagen from outside Denmark you will need to contact the Danish ICS – International Citizen Service who will help you with all your paperwork and your registration process. They will give you advice on how to sort out your tax card, your civil registration, your healthcare services and your driving licence.

You are likely to also need to set up a Danish bank account, a mobile phone contract and internet service before you move so why not also contact some providers and get some quotes to compare.

Tip three – Deciding where to live

If you are moving to Copenhagen and aren’t sure how long you are going to stay, a good idea is to rent somewhere to live such as a Living Suites serviced apartment. This will help you choose which area of the city suits you best before a more permanent move.
Take your time and explore the various districts before you decide where to live. Stroll around the streets, enjoy the coffee shops with their delicious pastries, or try a Smørrebrød washed down with a beer while you plan your move.

Tip four - Getting around

Copenhagen is a relatively compact city and getting around can be easy and fun. Of course we are a great cycling nation, so you will undoubtedly want to get yourself a bike and a waterproof coat. If you are coming from overseas, rather than buy a car straightaway, you might want to consider using our public transport and then hiring an electric car when you have something bulky to transport. After all we are aiming to be the world’s first carbon neutral capital by 2025! We have some great information on our Getting around Copenhagen blog.

Tip 5 - Settling in

Settling into life can take some time in Denmark. If you are not Danish, you will want to learn the language so at first, try to learn some simple phrases just to get by. Persevere with the language, and get some lessons, which may be free depending on your status, as this is a great way to widen your network and also will entitle you to apply for more jobs.

Make sure you join plenty of clubs and social groups. This is the best way to meet like-minded people outside your work place and will give you the opportunity to practice your language skills.

You will also find it is best to ‘follow the rules’ so make sure what is expected of you in Copenhagen society. Recycling, crossing the road, and getting in the right cycle lane, must all be done correctly to avoid a friendly admonishment! More importantly don’t forget to buy the cake on your Birthday as this is a social norm, for which you will be well rewarded with praise!

Finally remember to have fun! Denmark is all about Hygge, a feeling of wellness and contentment. So don’t get stressed and make sure you take the time to enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

If you are considering moving to Copenhagen, and you are looking for a place to stay for a long weekend, or even want somewhere to live whilst you research a more permanent move, our selection of Living Suites serviced apartments are the ideal solution. Conveniently located in north Copenhagen we are close to a number of large companies and with excellent transport links into the city. All our serviced apartments come with fully equipped kitchens, living areas and laundry facilities, so you can even bring the family to get their opinion!
