Copenhagen - Post Report Question and Answers

What are some typical ways to socialize, either with local people or with other expatriates? Are there groups or clubs that you can recommend?

Don't expect to socialize with Danes. They keep to themselves. They are friendly and helpful but don't expect to be invited over. It feels like half the residents of Copenhagen are expats so you can find other expats to socialize with. If you are single, like I am, you need to be happy spending a lot of time by yourself. There is tons of stuff to do in the city by yourself. - Feb 2022

Anything and everything. Go out, stay in, movies, theatre, opera, parks, lakes, beaches, amusement parks, museums, castles, etc. - May 2014

This is a modern, first world city, most things are available, but everything is more expensive than it is back home. - Feb 2014

Among expats mostly, but occassionally you will make a Danish acquaintance. - Aug 2011

Again, everything is expensive, so a lot of entertaining is done at home. If the community is active, it can be a great time with lots of events. Breaking into a Danish circle of friends is difficult, as they tend to very close & private. Friendly, for sure, but not open to creating additional close friendships. - Jul 2011
