Copenhagen - Post Report Question and Answers

Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Yes. - Feb 2022

Not if I had options in another European capital. It's too expensive here for what you get and the weather wears on your most of the year. - Jun 2021

I would definitely move back if an opportunity should arise that is not with the embassy. - Jul 2016

Absolutely. - May 2014

It has been a solid experience, but I don't think we will come back to Europe. - Feb 2014

I would have visited, but I think I prefer continental Europe. - Aug 2011

Yes, but with different expectations. The way of life is much slower, which has pros and cons. Customer service is much worse in Denmark, and things are just done much slower. Most shops are closed after 6 p.m. on weekdays, and closed completely on Sundays. Saturdays have limited hours as well, normally closing between noon and 2 p.m. Living on an American schedule in Denmark is challenging, as we generally do not get as much vacation time and work more hours in a day/week -- sometimes difficult to do when you see Danish counterparts taking 4-6 weeks of vacation at a time. But because leisure is a way of life, there really is a lot to do. You just have to take advantage of it when you do have the time. - Jul 2011
