This is a very civilized and well-run country. Although in the EU, they have opted not to join the euro currency.

As for living in the country, you should like pork, pickled fish, butter and beer. The strain of yeast that is used to make lager was discovered by a Dane. This was once perhaps the only country in the world with more pigs than people. Even though Denmark is quite small, it is a net food exporter with a very high‑tech agricultural sector. Despite being a very law‑abiding and sober (in behaviour) people, the Danes do tend to go binge drinking. Any parties may prove a gruelling experience. Copenhagen is a delightful city, rich in history and with delightful architecture, but it is an expensive place to live. This is hardly a mountainous country, nor even hilly ‑ the highest point is only 200m above sea level.

Entry requirements

If you are not an EU national, forget about work permits. If you are an EU national, the same applies as with all EU countries. You will need to get a residency permit after three months..

Vaccinations

Nothing special here. Check with your doctor.

Tax and Insurance

Tax is an eye watering 50%. Non EU nationals should get health insurance, although excellent free treatment is available.
