Become a digital nomad in Denmark

Recommend

Denmark is a small Scandinavian country with an adventurous past and a calm, stable present. Praised for its high quality of life, peacefulness, and sustainable urban development, the country is not one of the top digital nomad destinations — not yet.

Why Denmark

Once the hub of Viking Raiders and a major port in Europe, Denmark has traded in its wild past for a quiet and high-quality lifestyle. Modern urban design, innovative architectural projects, forward-looking cuisine, cycling lanes, and an old-world charm — all seem to play a role in creating the country’s signature “hygge”, the feeling of cosiness and well-being. Frequently topping the lists as the most liveable and happiest country in the world, Denmark offers all the ingredients for building a comfortable and stress-free working environment.

Best cities to work from

Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is a cool upbeat city with undeniable charisma. The city has all the makings of a metropolis with its modern amenities (good infrastructure, big shopping centres, exciting nightlife, etc.) but has chosen to remain cosy and intimate to benefit its residents and visitors. Here, you will find all the conveniences expected in a large modern capital paired with the laid-back atmosphere of a small town.

The second largest city in Denmark is Aarhus. The city has a large student population, and its liveliness and buzz are instantly noticeable. Like most Denmark cities, it is well-developed and exciting — with a large number of restaurants, cafés, boutiques, bars, landmarks, and festivals.

The internet and coworking spaces

The average broadband download speed in Denmark is estimated at 20.1Mbps, which is way above average for Europe and the world, placing the country in the top 10 countries with the fastest internet speeds.

You can choose to work at a coffee shop, café, or restaurant — all offering free Wi-Fi access. Alternatively, both Copenhagen and Aarhus offer an excellent selection of coworking spots.

Leisure in Denmark

There are many things to do in Denmark. The country has preserved a lot of its historical charm through its old castles and palaces like the 16th-century castle of Kronborg, the 17th-century Rosenborg Castle, and 18th-century royal winter residence of Amalienborg. Here, you can go on a ride on the antique roller coaster of Tivoli Gardens or opt for a more contemporary experience at the famous Legoland Billund Resort.

What to know before arriving

It’s easy to travel to and from Denmark since the country is a member state of the Schengen Zone and shares a long border with Germany from where you can further explore Europe.

If you are a resident of a country that is also a member state of the Schengen Zone, you can travel to Denmark with your National Identity Card. Alternatively, you can apply for a Schengen visa prior to your travels and enjoy access to other countries in the region as well.
