I have gathered together some of the most popular denmark rental websites and places for you to use in finding rentals in Denmark. Some of the rental websites cater only to apartment rentals, others to house rentals and some only for students or expats. Some of the sites will require you to sign up and/or pay a fee to access many of the features, like contact information. Others are completely free to use.
Each one has its pros and cons. I have tried to give you a little help in navigating each site and any other information that I think you should know. Some points that are made in the first few Denmark rental websites are applicable for other sites, but the information is not repeated for each site. I suggest you read through all the early descriptions.
The denmark rental websites are not listed in any particular order, so don't assume that the sites at position 1 are better than those at 18. Each site is different and caters to various groups and types of rentals. Find one or two that work for you.
I suggest you check out each denmark rental websites, before deciding on which one(s) will work best for your needs. Finding a place to live is one of the hardest parts of getting started in Denmark, so take your time and do your research before making a decision.
1. Bolig Portal: The most popular Denmark rental website is probably Bolig Portal. Choose to see the site in English. You can search for free. When you are ready to contact someone, who will have to register. Registration costs range from 39 to 395 Remember you can check out any terms you don't know at the above link.
In order to get all the contact details for a particular place, you will need to buy a Bolig Pakke which costs 395 kroner for 2 months of access.
2. Bolig Basen: The next rental website is also very popular and it is Bolig Basen. Here again you can search for various types of rentals, but as soon as you want to contact the renter, you will need to register and that costs 599 kroner for 6 months. Site has an English version.
Here you can place your own ad under the "boligsøgende" tab or search for apartments under lejeboliger.
3. Expatriates: The next denmark rental website is a free site and is geared toward expats. Site is in English, so it is easy to navigate. Does not have as many rentals as the above two and caters alot towards students and not families. Alot of them are rooms in houses and there are some house shares.
4. Housing Anywhere: This was formally a site called Casa Swap geared towards students. CasaSwap is now part of this new site and do not know a lot about it. It still seems to cater towards students so worth a look at.
Below is a list of 20 more housing websites to choose from:
5. Den Blå Avis: In Denmark this is an online auction site called the Den Bla Avis. When you get to the site click on Bolig - Lejeboliger - than you can set some parameters in the left column. Choose which area you are looking and how far away you want to search. For example, choose Copenhagen and 50 km out. Since these are mostly private ads, you can just contact them directly.
6. Copenhagen Post: The Copenhagen Post is the only all English paper and has some listing and can also be good to place an ad if looking for a place. Most of the Danish papers have listing for rentals, so if you are outside the major cities of Copenhagen, Arhus or Aalborg, you should check out the local and even national papers.
The next four websites are real estate sites, which mostly sell homes, but over the years have begun to include rentals and their selection if pretty varied. Due to the slump in house sales, many people are putting their homes up for rent and also the real estate are handling many sites for home developers who are just building homes for rent and not sale.
7. These sites are worth checking out, since they are all free to use and you contact the estate agents for viewings and details. There is also a great sense of security, when you deal with them versus an individual person renting their own place.
EDC: When you enter the EDC site, you click on the Leje button at the very top of the screen and it takes you to a new page, click Jeg ønsker at søge efter en lejebolig (I wish to search for a rental). Now scroll down and you will see new rentals and there is an arrow which will show you more rentals. You can also search by commune in the bar to the left f the listings.
Many of the rentals available though EDC are new builds which have been designed especially for the rental market.
HOME: When searching the HOME site, it is much more difficult to find their rental section, but it is there. If you get to their main site, put leje bolig in their search box and than their listings will come up. The link here should get you directly to their page.
Ejendomsmægler: There are other real estate companies/ ejendomsmægler who rent homes, apartments, etc.. Below is list of them and you can check them out.
But there is still more to see at Denmark Rental Websites here.

Hi, Generally speaking Denmark is very safe and serious crime is more uncommon than in the UK. There is brawling late a night after the bars close in
