Making friends for life

Even though Danish social conventions are quite informal, the Danes are not particularly spontaneous. If you invite a Dane for coffee, they will often have to check their calender first. Danes are punctual and arrive on time - also for social events. People from other countries often say that the Danes are friendly and ready to help, but that it can be difficult to get to know them and get close to them. It might take an effort to really get to know a Dane, but, when you succed, you will have a local and loyal friend for life. Don't be afraid to make the first move and say hello - Danes speak English very well.


If you have been in Denmark for a while, you will probably have come across the concept of "hygge", which roughly translates as "cosiness". Danes love to "hygge" and "hygge" can take many different forms: Crawling under the covers with a good book and a cup of hot chocolate. Playing board games with your friens at the local café. Going on a picnic with your family or friends. Or joining social activities in your club. There is no fixed definition of "hygge" - the most important thing is that you feel relaxed and comfortable. At its core, hygge is about building intimacy and trust with others.

Some of the happiest people in the world

On many occasions, Denmark has been ranked as one of the happiest contries in the world in various studies. The high level of happiness among Danish people is in part related to the Danish welfare society, which ensures a high level of safety and security in people's lives. At the same time, Danish society is characterised by a very high degree of trust. The voluntarily work in clubs and organisations contributes to this trust as well as an important part of Danish people's involvement in communities.
