Removals to Denmark: About Denmark
Denmark is the oldest monarchy in the west and the current Monarch is Margrethe II who has reigned for 40 years. Two further countries also make up the kingdom, the Faroe Islands, and Greenland.
Scandinavians have the world's highest job satisfaction ratings. Denmark has the lowest income equality in the world and the world's highest minimum wage. However, it is worth bearing in mind that expats will find it an expensive place to live compared to their homeland and Denmark has a higher tax rate. That said there are various benefits associated with these higher taxes, including the fact that the majority of Danish citizens' health care costs are met by taxes.
The country is regarded as a liberal society, as it became the first in Europe to legalise same sex marriages and give gay partnerships exactly the same rights as heterosexual couples.
It is also an advocate of reform on environmental issues. In fact, it was one of the first countries in the world to put in place an environmental law in 1973.
Denmark is also the home of children's favourite, Lego, which is sold globally, and is the birthplace of Hans Christian Anderson, whose fairy tales have been published in many languages world- wide.
If you are moving to Scandinavia and require international removals to Denmark, Greens can assist with all European removals and will do their best to take the stress out of your relocation.
