Moving and Living in Denmark

Denmark holds strong cultural and historical ties with its Scandinavian neighbours, Sweden and Norway and is regularly regarded as the happiest nation in the world. Once a Viking nation, Denmark is now one of the world’s most peaceful societies and are well-known for equality, sustainability and fun. 

The country consists of more than 440 islands (of which 70 are inhabited). Ultimately this means that nowhere in Denmark is more than 50km from the sea, making it a gateway to other Scandinavian countries and the rest of Europe. Berlin is just an hour’s flight away, and London and Paris are under 2 hours.
