If you’re considering or planning on moving to Denmark, it’s probably a good idea to learn a bit more about the country, their culture and what the country of Denmark has to offer. Once a Viking nation and a European force to be reckoned with, Denmark has, a millennium later, evolved into a thriving little nation that plays an important role in European and Scandinavian politics. Expats moving to Denmark will not only benefit from the country’s close proximity to other European nations; they will also enjoy the comparatively mild climate and the very high quality of life. Again and again, surveys have deemed the people of Denmark the happiest in the world.

Denmark has more to offer than a beautiful countryside and a happy population, however. The Danes are a very design-savvy bunch and are known around the world for their style in furniture, fashion, architecture, and graphic design. Anyone moving to Denmark will find themselves in a small country between the Baltic Sea and the North Sea, just north of Germany. Denmark consists of the peninsula Jylland (Jutland), the islands of Sjælland (Zealand), and Fyn (Funen), and upwards of 400 smaller islands, most notably Lolland and Bornholm. Wherever they choose to settle down, expats who move to Denmark enjoy a temperate climate with mild, windy winters and cool summers. Denmark is the most densely populated country in Scandinavia. It has an area of just 43,000 square kilometers, but its population of 5.6 million is only half that of Sweden and actually greater than Norway’s. Prior to moving to Denmark you should also research the types of visas available in Denmark, which best suits you and your family and the procedures for obtaining them. Make sure that you give yourself plenty of time prior to moving to Denmark to obtain your visa as it can take a substantial amount of time in some cases.

When it comes to moving from China to Denmark, there is a process that is long established and RapidWorld is able to help you resolve any issues. From arranging visas, finding properties and school places, to helping you decide what to take, packing it and shipping it to your new home, you won’t be alone. Our services cover whole China span including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Tianjin, Wuhan, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Guilin, Guiyang, Xiamen, Jinan, Nanchang, Changchun, Harbin, etc. We can move you to everywhere in Denmark including Copenhagen, Aarhus, etc. Here below are some important information regarding moving personal used household goods and effects to Denmark.
