There are several eye-opening things that many of us don't know about Denmark. You know most toys in the world are either from America or some parts of Europe, Denmark owns LEGO. The building block toy originates from the Danish kingdom. They take cleanliness very seriously. One might think because they are surrounded by water, it wouldn’t be clean, but the country guards against polluting its waters and maintains it regularly. Denmark owns the highest stake in the shipping containers used around the world, even though they don’t export much. Some of the other important things you should know about Denmark.
The popular word and notion on the street about Denmark are how it looks after its citizens. Denmark is seen as a country with the love of motherhood — always wanting to protect its children. Denmark upholds the nordic values of every date. It is seen as a country with a society with the highest form of equality, a nordic principle that holds men and women in the same light. Denmark also boasts fantastic landscapes that can be useful when you want to relax.
Before we show you how to move to Denmark, let's show you some things you might not know about Denmark.
The cost of living in Denmark is higher compared to Germany. If you are moving from Germany you would need to adjust to this. Below are some examples of basic needs and what they cost in both countries;
- Eating in a low-budget restaurant in Germany would cost you about €12 while it costs about €19
- A cappuccino you'd get in Germany for around €2 while in Denmark it shoots up to about €5
- Imported beers that cost less than €4 go for about €7 in Denmark
A more critical look into the cost of living between Germany and Denmark revealed that:
- consumer prices in Denmark including rent are 21% higher than in Germany
- Rent in Denmark is 15% higher than in Germany.
- The purchasing power of the average Dane in Denmark is 3.35% lower than what an average person enjoys in Germany.
- Restaurants in Denmark are more expensive than in Germany. Restaurants in Denmark have prices 57.72% higher than those in Germany
- Groceries are higher in Denmark as well. 23.73% higher than Germany.
Several things like these make living in Denmark expensive. However, some things make it easy for people to live.
The utilities in both countries are very different. Utilities like light, heating, and gas are higher in Germany whereas it's quite lower in Denmark. For instance, light, water, and heat bills in Germany are around €269 while in Denmark these types of bills are about €180.
So what the Danish people pay more for in basic things like food, drinks, and clothing, they gain with a relatively low amount in utilities compared to other European countries.
Tax is another interesting thing about living in Denmark. The most regular Dane or someone you’d call the average person pays up to 45% in tax implications on income. Denmark also has a 25% VAT on goods. However, education and healthcare are free in Denmark, so you can see where all the money is going.
One of the things you enjoy in Germany is more stable weather that allows you to do a lot of outdoor activities. Denmark has extremely cold weather; it is not all that bad because you can easily adapt. And it also has a beautiful summer that allows you to enjoy your outdoor activities. Summer is beautiful in Denmark, winter on the other hand is cold, and when it isn’t it is raining.
Living among Danes can be an eye-opening and interesting experience because they are one of the freest people in the world. They might appear too free which is something nice to adjust to.
The people of Denmark are known as the Danish people or Danes. You can call them Danes or refer to them as Danish, while we call citizens of Germany Germans. They are very people. Some might say 'not entirely' but they are in the first or second position. They are welcoming. They won't turn away strangers, something that has stayed with them since the Vikings' days. They are also happy people and wouldn't let anything stand in the way of fun or a party.
Although the statistics put Finland as the happiest people in the world, the difference is very little and Denmark follows closely.
Denmark is one of the best countries when it comes to a publicly funded healthcare system. A large chunk of their tax goes into funding the healthcare of the country.
Germany is one of the most developed countries in the world. Their healthcare system is one of envy that has seen people from other parts of the world from Africa, Europe and the Americas come for treatment. This is the same thing with Denmark as well. In every aspect that has to do with health and the care of people, Germany scored over 70% in all these aspects, with Denmark edging them with some strong decimals in experience and competence, as well as in modern types of equipment for diagnosis. Overall there’s not much difference, so if you decide to move, you are getting the best healthcare in the world.
Denmark boasts of an amazing standard of living. Although they have one of the highest prices in the world, the benefits they enjoy because of this is something that trumps other countries.
- Healthcare is free, education is free, and everyone is entitled to allowances as a child until they turn 18.
- There are maternity benefits for new mothers as well.
- They have well-maintained roads that are also quite extensive and welcoming.
- There are bicycle lanes and a consistent transport system to make the commute easy.
Denmark sees bringing your car into the country as importation. Because your car is registered in another country, the law is that you re-register your car within 14 days of entering the country.
- When you enter Denmark and you take up or get a residence, you need to register your car within 14 days
- When you enter Denmark and you’ve got a personal identification number or CPR number, you have to register your car within 14 days as well.
Now that we know some interesting and necessary things about Denmark, how do you get there?
