Denmark as a nation is among the oldest in the World. The kingdom has an unbroken list of sovereigns dating more than a millennium back and on the Danish “birth certificate” – the big runestone in Jelling – King Harold Bluetooth declares that he connected all of Denmark (and Norway) and made the Danes Christians. This declaration by the way gave him a kind of rebirth more than a thousand years later, as he is the “Bluetooth” behind the name of the modern technic.

A nation on two wheels

Denmark is a mostly flat country with over 400 islands, fantastic bread, beer and pastries, cycling-mad cities and more than 12,000 kms of bike routes that make cycling in Denmark a delight. Cycling is a way of life in Denmark – and if you cycle every day, you’ll find like-minded people everywhere in the country.

A safe country

Denmark is a safe country. Crime rates are low on an international scale, and delegates will safely be able to walk, cycle or use public transportation at any time of the day without having to worry about their safety. Most Danes speak fluent English and will be happy to help visitors with any problem or question.

One of the most livable countries

Safety, tolerance, green initiatives, international connectivity, creative environments, a relaxed lifestyle, cycle culture, democratic design and the active use of city spaces are among the key reasons why Denmark is ranked as one of the most liveable countries. Denmark is often cited as one of the world’s best countries to live in, priding itself on having a healthy work-life balance.

Cost of living

The standard of living in Denmark is above average and the economy performs above most European countries. Denmark is not an inexpensive country to live in, however, the costs of accommodation, food, transport, and leisure are comparable to other Western European nations. Danish salaries are also correspondingly high, and many services such as medical treatment and schools are paid for via taxes and the Danish welfare system, so that no user fees are charged.

Fixed exchange rate policy

Denmark conducts a fixed exchange rate policy against the Euro. This means that the value of the Danish Krone is to be kept stable against the Euro. (average exchange rate 7,46)
