In Copenhagen, you can bid farewell to the grueling “all work, no play” mentality. Copenhageners have a firm stance on their work/life balance, with low weekly working hours and a yearly minimum of 4 weeks paid vacation. This provides us the freedom to enjoy the endless opportunities of our exciting city alongside the people we love.
While it is always difficult moving to a new country, in Copenhagen, the transition is a smoother one. One of the hardest parts of relocating is usually the language barrier, and while the Danish language is notorious for being difficult to grasp, you will soon learn that most of Copenhagen’s population speak fluent English, allowing effortless communication from day one. However, if you are up for the challenge of immersing yourself into the Danish language, the government provides free lessons for everyone at a pace that is suited to you.
