Prepare the wallet
With an average salary of €4400 gross, the Danish lifestyle is not like that of France. The VAT is also worth getting wet: 25% on all products. In short, everything is more expensive: public transport, accommodation, food. An internship abroad in Denmark deserves to be prepared well in advance in order to anticipate this unavoidable budget part.
Get your pillow and parka ready
In winter, it is not uncommon for the sun to set around 3pm. If you come in winter, make sure you take a vitamin C treatment beforehand as you won’t see the sun very often. As for the climate, the country is known for its strong winds and harsh winters without having too extreme temperatures.
Green is good
Denmark is the land of green: cycling, countryside and breathtaking scenery. Enjoy it! With over 12,000 kilometres of cycle paths, cycling is a must-have for getting around and living like a Dane. Soak up the local chill culture, love of ecology and nature.
