The Danes are very hard to get to know. You will probably spend the vast majority of your time with Americans and other expats. If you can avoid the people who spend their days complaining about the costs and the weather, you have the potential of exploring a hidden gem of a country. - May 1, 2014
Denmark is a high functioning, cohesive society. However, it promotes the average rather than incentivize excellence. This comes out in many ways, big and small. The people are friendly, despite what expats say, but they tend to be less superficially friendly than Americans. The city is small by big city standards and can even feel quiet many nights a week. Keep your expectations realistic and you will have a nice, quiet couple of years. - Feb 8, 2014
