Your Danish Life, the expat magazine:

It is our ambition to be the well sought after source of English-language information on living in Denmark for the growing expat community here; to provide insights, information and inspiration that can help you settle into your new Danish life.

Coming to a new country can be very daunting.  Relying on the “as I usually do” is no longer possible and there are so many new things to learn and deal with that even simple everyday activities can become very frustrating. What are the do’s and don’ts? How do the Danes live? Who are they? Where do I buy groceries, clothes, or home furnishing? What can I do in my spare time?  How do I get a job?  Even after being in Denmark for some time, there still seem to be many new things to learn.

We give you in-depth articles about how things works as well as tips on things to do, home-shopping, family fun, wine & dine and much more.

Find daily updates of newsy and relevant articles on our on-line magazine at and our Facebook page.

We strive to have a management team and contributors to our magazine who are expats in Denmark or have had expat experiences

Bente, a native-born Dane, has lived as an expat outside Denmark in Poland, France, Austria, Finland, and Belgium. Some of the expat experiences were as a child attending international schools and others working within marketing and management for multinational companies. Her many expat experiences have given her an in-depth understanding of what it is like to  move to a country foreign from her own and adapt to new environments.

Adriana is a Spanish journalist who came to Denmark to complete her studies more than 10 years ago.Since then she has lived in Greece, the UK, U.S and Mauritius, where she developed her interests in writing, culture and languages. In 2010, she was Editor in Chief of the expat magazine Insight, which enabled her to share her experiences on what it is like to be a foreigner in Denmark.

Louise is British and has been an expat for 21 years, of  which eight have been in Denmark. She has also lived and worked in The Netherlands, Italy, France and Syria and knows very well the challenges of making a new country feel like home. She has been writing and editing for more than 20 years and is passionate about sharing knowledge to help other expats to make the most of their time abroad.

Sehrish is a British Pakistani national who has been in Denmark for the past six years with her husband and children. Her children are in a Danish school so she shares with us also her experiences of the Danish school system and integrating into the Danish mindset.

Our range of editorial contributors are all expats living in Denmark, who contribute with their own personal experiences and those they hear from friends and work colleagues around them.
