Below you will find a list of major National Registers Offices in Denmark including their addresses and contact information. This is where you can get your CPR number and take care of registering as a resident in Denmark. It is best to go to your local area office closest to your home.
If you live outside one of these major cities, contact your local kommune office. They will either have a "borger services" office there or can direct you to the closest one.
You can also log on to borger services at www.borger.dk, which has lots of information about public services. It is in Danish and you will have to copy and paste into google translate to translate the site. You won't be able to use the above website, until you have a NEM-ID and you can not get that until you have a CPR number. Typical Catch-22! But you can visit them and get it all set up in person and than you will access to all the other important information on their site.

Begining in 1924, the Danish government created a system of recording information on all their citizens and residents in Denmark. This was the first NRO, known as "Det Centrale Personregister", where information including names, addresses, birthdates and birthplace, marital status and other general information was manuallygathered.
Eventually in 1968, this was put on a computer systen and the CPR system was established.
If you want to see what information the government has on the register for you, you can log in with your NEM id and see what the National Registers Office has on you.

Arhus or Aarhus (originally named Aros) is located in central Jutland and, as the second largest city in Denmark, it has a lot to boast about.
