Culture and leisure

Mingle outside of work

You didn’t think internships were all work and no fun, did you? There’s quite literally a whole world outside your cubicle to explore, and there’s absolutely no reason why you shouldn’t be soaking it all in after work hours. Take weekend trips, hang out with fellow interns, or meet some your neighbors. Interning abroad is an opportunity to learn about new people and cultures, taste delicious new foods, and make lasting memories! (Just as long as you show up to work on time every day.)

So go on, step outside. It’s okay!

garderWhen it comes to cultural experiences and leisure, Denmark has a lot to offer. No matter what you are interested in, from sports, music and movies to fine arts, opera or museums – you will find it here.

Denmark is known for its skilful architects, filmmakers and minimalist fashion designers. If you add the fact that Danes are some of the most bicycle-friendly people in the world, you may get a sense of how versatile Danish culture is.

This also goes for the Danish lifestyle. In many ways, it corresponds to the diverse weather in Denmark. While it is hot in the summer and daylight leaves plenty of hours for sunbathing, swimming and picnics – the winters are dark, cold and well suited for traditional Danish ‘hygge’. ‘Hygge’ is a very important term in Denmark, which covers the warm and friendly atmosphere of spending quality time with friends, family or other loved ones.

Outdoor activities

outdoorDanes enjoy the world’s most healthy work-life balance – work and play is part of everyday life. Outdoors activities let you explore the nation’s varied landscapes (from mighty drifting sand dunes to rocky islands) by bicycle, kayak – and even horseback and beach buggy!
