Denmark was recently rated as one of the hardest countries for foreigners to settle. One issue mentioned by foreign residents was that they found it hard to feel at home. We’d like to hear your advice on how to tackle this feeling.


Denmark ranked 51st out of the 53 countries surveyed in a recent InterNations Expat Insider survey when it came to the Ease of Settling In Index.

It was placed in the bottom ten globally for every subcategory and factor in this index, with "settling in" among notable areas where Denmark scored poorly.

The survey found that international residents experience difficulty adapting to the local culture in Denmark, with 35 percent saying it was hard to acclimatise, compared to the global average of 18 percent.


Furthermore, 29 percent of those foreign residents surveyed stated they did not feel at home in Denmark, surpassing the global average of 20 percent.
