Culture

The Danish culture is based on “Jante Law”.  It states that everyone is equal, no one is special and everyone should be treated as such. As such it is very egalitarian and welcoming of all people, no matter their occupation, status, race or sexual orientation.  There is a lack of discrimination and everyone is treated fairly. The Danish language is Danish, or Dansk, which belongs to the Germanic family of languages within the Indo-European languages. You should learn the Danish language (at least a little) if you plan to live here. If you can speak a little Danish, it is appreciated; however, English and German is also widely spoken. The best way to adapt to the culture of Denmark is to get involved in the Danish way of life.
