Removals to Copenhagen, Denmark: Living in the Capital
This cosmopolitan capital has been declared as one of Europe's most liveable cities and it is easy to see why Copenhagen is so popular: it has fantastic shopping facilities, a busy cafe culture, a thriving night life, and one of the highest number of restaurants and bars per head of population in the world.
Copenhagen literally means 'merchant harbour' and, in ancient times, it was little more than a small fishing hamlet. Now, it is a bustling metropolis with romantic, fairy tale style buildings, spires, and cobbled squares, juxtaposed with cutting-edge architecture and design. Nearly one and a quarter million people live in Copenhagen, a city which has been declared one of the most environmentally friendly places in the world. It certainly deserves this recognition because, as well as having harbour water clean enough for swimming, the air is clean too, as nearly 40 per cent of people leave their cars at home and cycle to work every day.
Despite its size, Copenhagen is easy to navigate; so, if you like a spot of retail therapy, the city has some great shopping facilities, including one of the longest pedestrianised streets in Europe! The 1.1 km Strøget is the city's premier shopping district and is a massive tourist draw with many up-market retail outlets and designer stores. However, if quirky shops appeal, head down the narrow streets surrounding Strøget in the old city and you'll find some fantastic, independent stores.
Meanwhile, if you are moving to Copenhagen for work reasons, Copenhagen is a major regional centre for culture, business, finance, science, IT, life sciences, research and development and many trade conventions are held here. It is worth mentioning there are more than 2,000 foreign companies in the area of Copenhagen, including Microsoft, which has a regional base here. In Copenhagen, you can expect a high standard of living as workers are on some of the highest wages in the world (before tax). However, this all comes at a price as the capital is also one of the most expensive cities in Europe to settle.
Removals to Copenhagen, Denmark: Places to Visit
Copenhagen has been declared 'the city of spires' and has many spires of note, including Christiansborg Palace, which is in the centre of the city and is the seat of the Danish Parliament and the Supreme Court. Others include the corkscrew spire of Church of Our Saviour; there you can climb right to the very top and admire the extensive views over the city.
The city is dotted with museums and art galleries including: the Music Museum which houses a collection of instruments from all over the world, a museum dedicated to the history of medicine, and the National Museum, which is free to visit and is thought to be one of the best museums of its kind in Europe.
If you love all things royal, the Palace of Amalienborg, in the medieval part of Copenhagen, is where the Danish royal family live. The courtyard in the centre is open to visitors and you can see the changing of the guard at noon or visit the small, on-site museum. However, if you want to find out more about the history of the Royal family and view the crown jewels, head to Rosenborg Castle, a stunning renaissance palace which is surrounded by an attractive park.
Meanwhile, if you appreciate beautiful works of art, you won't be disappointed as there are plenty of art museums and galleries to visit. These include: the National Gallery, which includes works by Rubens, Picasso and Rembrandt, and the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, which houses the largest collection of Rodin sculptures outside Paris.
With all that sight-seeing, you will want a bite to eat and the good news is great food is aplenty in Copenhagen as there are as many as 13 Michelin starred restaurants. Copenhagen is seen as a gourmet destination and the restaurant Noma was ranked the world's best restaurant for three years running from 2010.
Removals to Copenhagen, Denmark: Accommodation for Expats
If you are looking for rental accommodation at reasonable prices in Copenhagen, this can be quite difficult to find. As a general guide, prices are about £1,070 a month for a studio apartment, £1,400 for a one bedroom flat and £1,700 for a two bedroom property. These prices also include the cost of heating and water.
For rentals, the minimum lease is 12 months and you would normally expect to pay a deposit of one or two months' rent in advance. You may also be able to find short term rentals as some people rent their flats out for a few months during the summer so they can travel.
Removals to Copenhagen: Out and About in Copenhagen
If you are getting out and about in the city, many people cycle, but there is also a comprehensive public transport system in Copenhagen. All public transport in the city – including buses, the S-train and metro – operate on a zone system. Tickets can be bought from bus drivers, ticket offices and ticket machines and, if you are moving here with family, the good news is that children under the age of 11 travel free if they are accompanied by an adult. Plenty of taxis operate in the city too, although these can be quite pricey; however, all taxis accept all the major credit cards.
For travel further afield, such as to and from the UK, you will find Copenhagen's Airport full of activity. It is the busiest airport in Scandinavia, handing an incredible 23 million passengers a year. Most of flights from here are international as only 10 per cent of passengers take domestic flights.
