Danish Kommunes

Danish-kommunes

Denmark is divided into 5 regions encompassing 11- 29 danish kommunes each. There are presently 98 kommunes in Denmark and they are each responsible for the running of the local social services, such as employment, schools and garbage collection. Kommunes will vary in size ( 20,000+ residents ) and boundaries often change from year to year.  The above map shows you how they are divided.


Below you will find a list of the all the kommunes/municipalities in Denmark - listed geographically.  Included is the address for the regional office.

It is important for you to know which Danish kommune you live in and also it is quite helpful to know a little bit about each one, since their local fees: for example for day care and school vary, so do the local taxation rates and many other things. If you are planning on moving to Denmark it is helpful to do a little research on each to see what they offer their residents. You can get more information by going to their individual websites, which are listed below.
