A little bit about FYI Denmark and us.
We built this site as an ongoing project to not only help other expats moving to Denmark, but also to let us give back to some of the people who helped us, when we first moved to Denmark.
The first time I got to Denmark I had a lot of questions, too. Even now, I am still learning new things about living in this tiny part of Scandinavia. My name is Charlie and this is my 3rd time living in Denmark. This time it is probably permanent. (That is what I said last time, too!)
If you are already here, you will find lots of advice and plenty of tips that will make the culture shock a bit easier.
I do NOT profess to know everything, but I have traveled all over Denmark, lived in both Sjælland and Jylland, and speak the language.
Each time I and my family return, we have to relearn many things, since things are always changing. The learning curve is a little easier each time, but there have been many times, when we wished we had access to the type of information provided here.
I will confess about FYI Denmark does not have all the answers, since people come from so many different parts of the world: Africa, India, Spain, France, America, Brazil, Sweden, Belgium, Greece, Canada and Iceland. We all have our own unique situations and reasons for coming to Denmark, but I am sure that you will find lots of information to help you.
You will find general information on Denmark, learn all about the public transportation systems (which is one of the great hurdles for many expats), find information about getting jobs and acquiring housing and even learn about the Danish language. If I do not have the information, there are links to many other sources to guide you.
There is also lots of information for the tourist, so do not disregard this site if you are coming here on vacation or holiday. The tips on transportation will not only save you lots of money but make getting around SO MUCH EASIER.
Whether you are an expat in Denmark, a tourist, immigrant or just curious about Denmark, there should be something of interest to you within these pages. If you do not find the answer here, there is a strong international expat community plus plenty of forums and meet-up groups that can also assist you with many of your questions.
Welcome to Denmark!
P.S. If you have any helpful advice, please contact us and share your tips and ideas. You can quickly and easily add a comment on nearly every page of this website.
Every expat has something to offer, and by helping each other we can make life here so much better. Expat life can difficult, but others have done it and so can YOU!
That is enough about FYI Denmark, now let's get started helping you.
