Why choose Denmark?


Foreign nationals who come to Denmark often cite safety and security as the country's most important characteristics. Children walk to school alone and even well-known leaders in the business community do not have to surround themselves with bodyguards. The country's parliament, the Folketing, is open to everyone and it is not unusual to see a government minister cycling through the city. Even the Queen can shop in Copenhagen or Århus with a minimum of bodyguards.

That this notion of security is not just fiction is reflected in the statistics that show the crime rate in Denmark is among the lowest in the world.
